Hot Dog Day In Ithaca

ITHACA (WENY) -- Tompkins County SPCA kicked off their annual Hot Dog Day today.
     This event has taken place on the first Friday in May for over a decade.
     SPCA staff, animals and Lou "the hotdog guy" were outside of Madeline's Restaurant in Ithaca grilling to raise money for shelter animals.     
     Last year, the event raised over $2,000.
     "The best part about this event today is that we had a donor this month for $30,000 challenge match," said Jim Bouderau of the Tompkins County SPCA. "So any dollars that we raise, by the end of the month, she'll match dollar for dollar up to $30,000. 
     The Tompkins County SPCA held another fundraiser today at Sweet Melissa's Ice Cream shop in Ithaca.
