January 08, 2013

SCOTLAND, Pa. — The Boys & Girls Club of Chambersburg and Shippensburg (Pa.) are preparing to welcome many of the area’s leading restaurants to compete in its second annual Wing Challenge at Chambersburg Country Club.

Held on Jan. 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. and open to the public, the event will include wings from area restaurants. The cost of entry is $20 per person.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the area’s local Boys & Girls Club, according to a news release.

In 2012, the Boys & Girls Club welcomed more 150 guests, or “judges,” to its first wings event. Many restaurants were awarded prizes, but Knute’s of Shippensburg was awarded the crown of the “Best Wing.”

This year, in addition to other prizes, the club will have a wing-eating contest, wing brain-teaser challenge and a 50/50 raffle, the news release stated.

“We are extremely excited for our second year of the Wing Challenge. Last year, we were able to raise over $1,500 for the Boys & Girls Club, and we hope to better that mark this year,” Boys & Girls Club President Gary Holder said in the news release.

Tickets for the event can be purchased by contacting the Boys & Girls Club at 717-261-5761.

Tickets also will also be sold at the door. Restaurants interested in signing up to participate can contact Karyn Gramata at the club’s number.
