The clock is ticking for teams to signup for the Battle of the Burgers.

The deadline for team registration is tomorrow and the event is April 26.

Shasta Scott, an Eastman National Bank team member said teams can be as big or small as you want.

“The teams will be given 20 pounds of meat and 10 packages of buns, then they will be responsible for 10 pounds of meat and five packages of buns, so there’s little cost really," Scott said. " It’s $25 to enter one catergory or $35 to enter both categories.”

The categories are all-American burger or specialty burger.

There will also be a people’s choice award.

Scott said booths can be decorated and can be a chance for companies to advertise.

Generous cash prizes are being offered and all the money goes to a good cause.

Scott said it’s Ponca City helping Ponca City.

“This Battle of the Burger is being put on by Leadership Ponca City, their 2014 class," Scott said. "They actually were given a task coming-up with hopefully a sustianable fundraising event and they visited several organizations, and they agreed upon the mission and in doing so they all decided to do this Battle of the Burger, so all the proceeds could benefit the mission.”

Tasting kits can be bought at the Chamber or any local bank before the event for $5 or at the event for $6.

This is a family event at Lake Ponca, there will be live music, bounce houses and balloon animals
