TULSA, OK -- Nine men downed hot dog after hot dog, all for $250 and bragging rights.

Contestants from all over Green Country were in Tulsa Sunday to see if they have what it takes to take home the trophy. 

Of course, it was all for a good cause.

Coney I-Lander hosted the hot dog eating contest to raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

"It helps kids and we're a family restaurant and it just was a really good fit for us," said Kyle Cermak, event organizer.

Tulsan Ryan Dowers walked away the winner, gobbling 20 hot dogs in just 10 minutes.

Coney I-Lander says it hopes to make this an annual event.
