When it comes to "hot-dogging," Laura Lee Stoddard, Laura Lynn Sedgwick, Tiffany Tenney and Aaron Rosenberg know the score. They were recently treated to a ride through town in the Oscar Mayer Weenie Mobile to promote "Dine Out Month for Easter Seals."
The children were picked up from Butler Elementary, Copperview Elementary and Primary Children's Hospital in the giant hot dog.The Utah Easter Seal Society has been raising money for children with disabilities through the "We Care" Program, which works with food brokers and manufacturers who make a donation each time a case of the product is sold to an institutional food-service operator. Donations will be collected through Nov. 30.
Participating restaurants include ZCMI, the University of Utah, Dee's Family Restaurants and Arctic Circle. The program raised about $5,000 in the first two weeks.
