The Boys & Girls Clubs of NEPA Announces
New Fundraiser Featuring Chicken Wings


The Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeastern Pennsylvania will be hosting Wings at the Waterpark at Montage Mountain on Sunday August 10, 2014 from 2 – 5 pm.  Attendees will sample a chicken wing from each wing vendor and have the opportunity to vote for their favorite wing in the categories of: Hottest, Craziest and Best in NEPA.  The wing vendor winner in each category will be recognized with a trophy, post-event publicity and bragging rights. 

Cost to attend is $20 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under.  You may also add a ticket to the waterpark for an additional $10.  During the event there will be a hot wing eating contest where the one lucky winner will receive a basket of goodies from Susquehanna Brewing Co.

Currently the wing vendors include: Ale Mary’s, Andy Gavin’s Eatery & Pub, Bell’s County Line Pub and Eatery, Dukes Sports Bar, Hilton Scranton & Conference Center, Kildare’s Irish Pub, Market Street Bar & Grill, Olde Brook Inn, Penalty Box Tavern, Slingshots Bar & Grill and Slocum Hollow. There are still spots available for wing vendors.  Wing vendors may enter at no cost.  For more information contact Julianne Cucura, development director, at (570) 342-8709 ext. 110 or jCucura@bgcnepa.org
