Qatar Spicy Pickle Charity Challenge
To all you Spice Girls out there..!
Spicy Pickle, a popular American Franchise owned by “Food Fabulous Company” hosted the first ultimate Pickle Challenge in support of Qatar Cancer Society. The casual dining restaurant joined up with the Harley Davidson group and the local community to raise money for the cause on Sat 10 May.
The competition was initiated by Spicy Pickle Qatar, with the focus on encouraging the community to help QCS’s activities in terms of providing cancer patients with financial and moral support. Throughout the event, awareness brochures were distributed about the life threatening disease; the information booklets included tips on how to prevent cancer and gave advice on how individuals need to incorporate a healthier lifestyle in order to build a stronger disease fighting immune system.
The competition took place between members of the public and the Harley Davidson bike owners with a total of 20 contestants. There were two rounds consisting of 10 participants each, during which contestants were instructed to eat as many pickles as they could in a set period of two minutes! The concept of the challenge revolved around a sum of money raised through every pickle being eaten.
The Food Fabulous Company added to the amount being donated, summing up to a total of QR10,000 being given to Qatar Cancer Society.
