To help celebrate National Ravioli Day, Miss USA 2012 Nana Meriwether hosted a ravioli-eating contest with TV personality Jenny McCarthy at the newly-opened Buca di Beppo Restaurant in Times Square. Teams from the NYPD and FDNY competed to devour 100 pieces of ravioli in three minutes with the first team to finish receiving a cash donation to their respective Columbia associations. Wiping their plates clean, the NYPD took the prize with proceeds going towards scholarship funds to advance the education of of the New York area youth. Buon appetito!
