On a scale of 1 to 10, this event weighed in as a winner. John Birnhak (fifth from left), vice president of Weight Watchers of Philadelphia, waded through a much thinner-looking crowd at ceremonies heralding the 26th annual Battle of the Badges weight-loss contest between police and firefighters, all benefitting the Hero Thrill Show. Thrilled with the leaner celebrants (from left) are David Beatrice, deputy fire commissioner for operations; Bill Gault, president of Local 22 of the Fire Fighters Union; Lloyd Ayers, fire commissioner; attorney Jimmy Binns, chairman of the Hero Thrill Show, Inc.; Birnhak; Richard Ross, deputy police commissioner; Richard Davison, fire department executive chief; and Capt. Kevin O’Malley, fire department employee relations representative. In whose name was the Weight Watchers $10,000 donation made? The police copped the honor this year.
