"We do about $75,000 of charity care around Bowling Green and the nine surrounding counties of Warren County. Basically, that means we take care of patients that don't have insurance and in order to do that we have to have a lot of fundraisers," said Todd Dixon, Marketing Coordinator for Hospice of Southern Kentucky.

The weekend crew here at WBKO bit off more than they could chew in a cookie contest today.

Stephanie Midgett, Andrew Dawson, Michael Gossum, and a randomly chosen teammate participated in the Hospice Chocolate Fest Oreo-Eating Contest.

Team WBKO fell short ten Oreos to the other team eating 64 Oreos total in two minutes.

And our guest teammate, Nathan Cherry, wanted to eat more.

"The cookies were good!", he said after the competition.
