CHICAGO — As if you needed another reason to stop by your local hot dog joint, more than 50 area Vienna Beef slingers have pledged to donate a percentage of hot dog sales with Special Olympics Chicago.

From now until Sept. 30, participating restaurants will give away some of their sales to sports program when customers make a purchase from 4 p.m.-close Thursdays and all day Saturdays. Diners should bring a hard or digital copy of the flyer for the event.
