Name a Fraser Street Deli Sandwich After Yourself

What do Adam Taliaferro, Evan Pugh, and Pat Chambers have in common? Besides being Penn State legends, of course, they’ve all got sandwiches named after them at the Fraser Street Deli.

Owned by Joshua Guiher, the deli, located at 109 S. Fraser Street, names its sandwiches, subs, and salads after famous and important Penn Staters. Now, it’s your turn to get your name on the menu alongside the best.

Through January 14, you can enter a contest to create your very own sandwich to be included on the menu using this site. For a $5 suggested donation, benefiting two Penn State alumni Maddy Pryor (also an Onward State alumnus) and Christine Kantonides’ efforts to dance in THON 2014 representing DMAIG, you’ll receive an email with a link to create the sandwich with your choice of breads, toppings, and sauces. The sandwiches will be judged on January 15 by THON Overall Director Ryan Patrick, Relay For Life of Penn State Overall Chairperson Courtney Zeuner, and Nittany Nation President Darnell Brady.

Sandwiches can be named after anybody, as long as they are not a current student-athlete due to NCAA rules (thanks, Emmert). Student-athletes can enter the contest, however, under a different name.

Once the sandwich is selected, $1 of every kind of that sandwich sold will also be donated to THON until spring break. I’m always a fan of unique THON fundraisers, and let’s face it; what could be better than eating and benefiting THON?

To get started, visit this link to make your donation.
