Maglio & Company was once again pleased to be the sponsor of the third annual Tomato Romp that took place on the East Side on September 12, 2009.

The one-day benefit for the East Side Business District was a smashing success. The rotten tomato cage fight raised $500 for Feeding America of Eastern Wisconsin. It wasn't exactly clear who won the tomato fight (because all of the camera lenses still have tomato pulp on them) but we're sure that whoever it was is sitting back and enjoying a bloody mary right about now.

Congratulations also go out to Dogs Bollocks and Twisted Fork for winning the third annual Best Bloody Mary contest. Dogs Bollocks won with the judges but Twisted Fork came out ahead as the fan favorite. Thank you to all of the restaurants and taverns who brought their best mixing skills to the contest.

The festival was also an official sight for Second Harvest of Wisconsin. Attendees were encouraged to donate their excess fresh produce to Second Harvest.
