BENEFITING: Tides Center
EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
Chicken Wings for charity! This is our 5th Wing Wings Chicken Wing Eating Contest and Fundraiser. This year proceeds raised by contestants and raffle prizes will benefit the Homeless Youth Alliance (homelessyouthalliance.org). We feel directly connected to the HYA, as they recently moved their administrative offices to our neighborhood, the Lower Haight. They provide outreach & services to homeless youth all over the city. " HYA’s participants, the most “hard-core” subset of homeless youth in San Francisco, access medical and mental health services, harm-reduction education, and referrals in a safe and non-judgmental environment. Most of HYA’s outreach staff has personal experience with homelessness and addiction, and so are able to connect more deeply and honestly with Haight Ashbury’s homeless youth." Contestants will be participating in one of 2 events- A timed event (all you can eat in 10 minutes) and a hella hot event (who can eat 10 hella hot wings the fastest). Please support our contestants, as its all for a great cause. And fun!
