Flancer’s Café, 610 N. Gilbert Road, Gilbert, will hold its 10th annual pizza eating contest 11 a.m. Sunday.

The event benefits the Wounded Warrior Project/Disabled Sports USA, which organizes sports rehab therapy for Iraq War veterans who have lost limbs. Last year, the event raised more than $20,000 for the program through raffle sales. The event costs $30 to enter, which includes a commemorative T-shirt and all of the pizza a participant can eat in 15 minutes. The winner receives $500.

Gilbert Mayor John Lewis will attend as a “celebrity judge.” The raffle includes cash prizes, a gift card from Norwood Furniture and limousine service. Raffle tickets can be bought at the event or ahead of time at Flancer’s Cafe.

To enter, call (480) 926-9077.
