On Saturday, June 8, Tony Luke’s of Sicklerville (663 Berlin Cross-Keys Rd.) is making a 100-foot chicken cheesesteak that it plans to submit to the Guinness World Records as the largest chicken cheesesteak. 

All proceeds from the chicken cheesesteak - sold in 4-inch sections for $5 - will benefit Washington Township High School’s Project Graduation. Festivities will begin at 10:30 a.m.

Project Graduation is an all-night drug- and alcohol-free celebration, which begins immediately after the formal commencement.

No, the shop does not have a hundred-foot oven. Owner David Wachs says they'll assemble it using 6-foot rolls from Liscio's.

Customers who mention Washington Township High School or Project Graduation when ordering June 8 will receive a free 22-ounce soda with the purchase of a traditional sandwich.
