Hot Dog Donna Gives Out Free Hot Dogs in Nyack (VIDEO)

Hot Dog Donna is part of the Nyack Boat Club


Tuesday morning, Nyack Mayor Jen Laird-White called up Donna Avdoyan, a Blauvelt resident who is better known as Hot Dog Donna because of her hot dog food truck.

Laird-White was hosting her first Hurricane Sandy Q&A session with residents that morning and asked Avdoyan to come to Nyack Village hall to sell hot dogs to residents because all of Nyack was still without power that day and possibly in need of hot food, even if it was just a hot dog.

“Originally, I was asked to come and sell the hot dogs … but decided to give them out for free instead,” she said. “I gave out (all) 150 hot dogs … It feels great to be down here and help people out. I belong to the Nyack Boat Club and we lost 23 boats. I know a lot of other people had a lot more severe things happen to them, so to come down and give out free hot dogs was just something I had to do.”

Do you know of someone that's done something kind or helpful? Give them a thank you shout out in this Patch article.

Very nice of you Donna, thank you While the village 'bar' owners were discontent with not being able to serve booze after 10pm, some people actually think of others rather than themselves.

Well Mike, you may be right about Donna, you are wrong about the bar owners. Way to bring the negativity.
