COLUMBUS, Ohio, July 18, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- White Castle has issued a last-call for entries for the annual Cravers Hall of Fame Contest. The deadline for entries is July 31, 2011, and Cravers have just two weeks left to submit original stories about why White Castle is meaningful to them and the efforts they have gone to satisfy cravings for the Original Slider® hamburgers. Winning Cravers are invited to Columbus, Ohio to attend the Hall of Fame induction ceremony on October 20, 2011.
"The Cravers Hall of Fame is a way for us to honor the ultimate Craver and how they've made White Castle a part of their life," said Jamie Richardson, vice president of corporate relations. "It gets more difficult every year to pick the inductees but the team at White Castle and our panel of judges look forward to reading all the story submissions, ranging from sentimental, silly and heartwarming."
White Castle is renowned for the loyalty of its fans, fondly known as Cravers, who have created their own subculture dedicated to the Original Slider® hamburgers and their love of White Castle. Since the creation of the Hall of Fame in 2001, more than 7,000 Cravers have vied for the honor, but only 80 have been inducted, including rock musicians, movie stars and even a Greek Orthodox priest who satisfied his crave after a 40-day religious fast. All inductee stories are preserved in the Hall of Fame section of the White Castle website.
Stories are evaluated for originality, duration and extent of the "Crave." Official rules are available at www.whitecastle.com/cravers/hall-of-fame-rules. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter as we count down the days with stories and information about the Cravers Hall of Fame.
