Smith Packing teaming up with Boilermaker for a good cause

By WKTV News

(WKTV) - This year at the Boilermaker Expo, you'll be able to grab a bite to eat and support a good cause.

Smith Packing of Utica is donating more than 5,000 pounds of their famous Honest John's hot dogs to the expo. The local company has long wanted to be a part of the area's biggest annual event and is now a proud sponsor of America's greatest 15k.

"So, we decided this year, let's come out and support the community and see if we can get Honest John's on everybody's plate in Utica, N.Y.," said Dan Kupiec, vice president at Smith Packing. "But realistically, what we wanted to do was get involved in the Boilermaker and with the Food Bank of Central New York. We felt it was a great collaboration."

All proceeds of the hot dog sales will be donated to the Food Bank of Central New York.
