KidsPeace Foster Care In Fayetteville, NC to Hold Wing Cook-Off March 26, 2011

 Permanent link

KidsPeace Foster Care and Community Programs in Fayetteville, NC, will be holding its third annual Wing Cook-Off as a fundraiser to help the children placed into foster care by that office. This year's event will be held at Campbellton Landing from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m, on March 26, 2011, with teams setting up starting at 9:00 a.m. The competition should prove to be fierce as restaurants and organizations compete for votes from visitors who purchase tickets that allow them to sample all of the entries. At the end of the day, a team will be declared the winner and have bragging rights for the next year.

 

This event is always a big hit, and competitors work very hard to win the best wings in town title. In addition to visitor ticket purchases, the wing cookers pay an entry fee and secure a spot to set up and cook their best. Foster families and children attend, and the entire community comes out to support the kids. 

 

For more information on the event and to learn how to participate or make a donation, please call 910-223-0949.
