Whataburger Challenge to benefit student organizations

See also

In the past Whataburger has hosted events to help out the community and local schools. Past events have included “Oh! Whata Nights” that have activities like jalapeno eating contests, drawings and raffles to raise funds for schools. This week Whataburger is hosting its first "Whataburger Challenge" endurance competition to benefit The University of Texas at San Antonio student organizations.

On Thursday February 27 representatives from local student organizations will compete in a friendly battle to keep one hand on an inflatable 6 foot Whataburger cup. The person who lasts the longest wins free “Whataburger for a Year” as well as a $1,000 donation to the winning student organization.

Joining in the fun will be the UTSA cheerleaders, Rowdy the Roadrunner mascot and a DJ. The student organization with the most supporters at the event will receive a $500 donation to their organization. The public is invited to stop by and cheer on the participants.

Whataburger has been making burgers since 1950 when Harman Dobson opened a humble hamburger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas. He wanted customers to take one bite and say “What a burger” so he named his stand on Ayers St “Whataburger” and since then there are over 700 locations across the country.
