#TourDeFrankUSA #HotdogHumanitate

$5,130 of $5,000 goal

Raised by 98 people in 9 months


In 2014, thanks to a promotion by Camel City Goods, I started my #TourDeFrank; a journey to sample and chronicle the finest hot dogs that this world has to offer.   In just 3 years, I've visited over 120 different restaurants, dives, shacks, and food trucks to try their variation on the American classic.

To date, I've mostly been able to visit locations in and around my home in North Carolina.  However, it's time to see the rest of the country and taste hot dog specialities from across the USA.  In May of 2018, my mother, my aunt, and I will spend 8 days driving from the East coast to the West coast making stops along the way at some of our nation's best hot dog-serving establishments.

As an alumnus of Wake Forest University and in the spirit of its motto, Pro Humanitate (For Humanity), I'm raising money for the Chaplain's Emergency Fund at Wake Forest University.  The Chaplain's Emergency Fund provides funds for faculty, staff, students, and contracted workers during times of need.  100% of the money raised will go toward the CEF.  We will be traveling approximately 3,500 miles so it is my goal to raise at least $3,500.

You can follow along on our adventures through Instagram, @jjdeac06 or Facebook, Tour De Frank.

Friends,
I'm thrilled to announce that on Saturday, March 31, thanks to an anonymous donor, the original goal of $3,500 was reach AND surpassed! I can not express my thanks enough to everyone who has donated. What a fantastic difference this money will make for the WFU community.

With over a month left before the trip, it hardly seems right to stop here. So I'm thrilled to announce a new goal: $4,000. I have total faith that we can get $450 between now and May 23rd, when the trip starts.

Spread the word and let's reach the new goal!

Frank you so so so much!

Again, thank you!
