Actress Jenny McCarthy and Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether hosted a Ravioli eating contest on National Ravioli Day at the opening of Buca di Beppo Italian restaurant in Times Square. The contest was between the FDNY and the NYPD and a $5,000 check each went to charity to benefit the NYPD/FDNY Columbia Association Scholarship program. The contest consisted of 20 Ravioli's per plate and they had 3 minutes to eat them. While the winners of the contest were the NYPD, checks were presented to both teams recognizing the good work that they do in the community.
