    I agree with Bison. That was a very worthwhile cause and it looked as if Sonya had fun doing it. Sonya is certainly a credit to competitive eating in the best ways!

    Excellent job Sonya! That’s a really nice thing to do, and it must have been very rewarding for you too!

    Sonya and the Ray “The Bison” Meduna are two of the nicest people/classiest acts in all of CE.
