MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) – Croissants Bistro & Bakery’s Fourth Annual Cupcake Eating Contest and the Reggie Sanders Foundation are teaming up to fight Autism on Saturday, July 4, 2015, from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m.

“Croissants’ Cupcake Eating Contest has become a great community event for Myrtle Beach,” said Heidi Vukov, owner of Croissants. “I am so excited to team up with the Reggie Sanders this year in an effort to raise money and build awareness about autism and the Reggie Sanders Foundation.”

Admission is free and will feature kid’s cupcake decorating, face painting and live music by The Harvest; carnival games, pony rides, a dunking booth, hamburgers, hot dogs, beer and other beverages will be available for purchase. A 50/50 Raffle and a silent auction containing rare sports memorabilia will be held and proceeds will benefit the Reggie Sanders Foundation, according to a news release from Croissants.

Starting at 4 p.m., contestants will have five minutes to eat as many cupcakes as possible. The winner will receive $500, a medal and will be crowned “Cupcake Champion” of Myrtle Beach; Second and Third Place winners will receive a medal and tickets to Myrtle Beach area restaurants, retail stores and attractions in addition to an Ocean Front Vacation Package, all valued close to $1500.

Reggie Sanders, a native of Florence, South Carolina and retired Major League Baseball player, started the Reggie Sanders Foundation to provide help to children and families living with Autism Spectrum Disorders; Sanders’ older brother, Demetrius, was diagnosed with Autism when he was three, according to news release from Croissants. Sanders will announce the winner of the 3-Day All-Star Experience at 4:30 p.m. For more information about the Experience or to purchase raffle tickets, visit: http://reggiesandersfoundation.org/kick-off/.
