Food Bank, PBA Hold Annual ‘Hot Dog Sunday’ Fundraiser

Customers lined up for the annual Hot Dog Sunday fundraiser Oct. 8 for the Franklin Food Bank and FTPD PBA Local 154.

Hot dogs, brats and burgers were on the menu Oct. 8 at the annual Hot Dog Sunday fundraiser for the Franklin Food Bank and Franklin Township Police PBA Local 154.

The event was held at the Corner Cafe Deli, Amwell Road and DeMott Lane, and sponsored by the cafe, PSEG, Stop & Shop, Bimbo Bread, Frito-Lay and Coca-Cola.

PBA member Anthony Bisignano, an FTPD Sergeant, said the money raised during the event, as with that raised during all PBA fundraisers, is given back to the community.

“We donate to other organizations in the town, the food bank, the Boy Scouts, the Little League,” he said. “We try to support as many organizations as we can with the money we get from the event.”

He said the PBA’s next fundraiser will be 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Oct. 14 and 15, at the Snyder’s Farm Fall Festival on South Middlebush Road.

Frank Hasner, executive director of the food bank, said that events like Hot Dog Sunday help the food bank’s mission, but also help in other ways.

“We’re a local charity, we need friends,” he said. “The PBA is a great partner, the Corner Deli is a great partner.”

“We like to do this on Sundays when there’s soccer and Pop Warner going on,” he said. “We like to bring in those families and it gets them to realize we’re a local charity. It really is multi-faceted in the benefits that we get.”
