Hot Wing Lovers Unite to Support the United Way of Harrison Co.

Wings and sports, two great combinations any time of the week, but Sunday was even better for those two things.  Not only could you watch the Super Bowl at Buffalo Wild Wings in Bridgeport, but you could help raise money for people in our area just by eating there.

This is the second year the restaurant has donated 3 percent of their sales for the entire day to the United Way of Harrison County.

Organizers said that, even though the snow kept a lot of people away, it was still a huge revenue day with the pick-up orders, making it a great time to have a fundraiser.

"Buffalo Wild Wings has been a wonderful partner with the United Way of Harrison County. They sponsor several dining out events throughout the year, and obviously this one today for Super Bowl Sunday is one of the biggest of the year, because they get so busy. It's such a great way to help so many agencies by one donation," said Melanie Chancey, Chairperson for the United Way.
The two organizations will pair up again later this month for another fundraiser.  The Blazing Hot Wing Eating Contest will prove who can best handle the heat.  Competitors will race to eat the most and the hottest wings.  But the pain is all worth it, because it's for a good cause.
Anyone can be a part of it, as long as they're at least 18.  It's on February 20th at 7 PM at Buffalo Wild Wings in Charles Point.
There will be two winners, the one who raises the most money with sponsors and the one who eats the most wings.  Each serving of wings will continue to get hotter, raising the heat on the competition.
Five News' own Nate Smail will be in the contest, so if you'd like to either sponsor him, or show him up by eating more wings, we invite you to sign up!
