Proceeds of Wingfest go to Community Care.
by James Symons
What happens when you get a bunch of people who have empathy and care about the community?
You get the inaugural Wingfest for Community Care.
Port Dalhousie’s Lakeside Park played host to the first ever event organized by Karl Vanderkuip of Remax Garden City Realty, along with various other community members . All proceeds including the three 50/50 draws which are held at 4 p.m., 6.pm. and 8 p.m. on each day of the event will go directly to Community Care.
Experience Music kicked off today’s music. They are a band from the GTA that does a bit of everything and their main focus is bringing the community together to help one another. The Eco Defenders were on-site today.
They are a group of volunteers organized by the Niagara Region focused on keeping recyclables out of landfills. The facilities today were spotless. They are a fast and friendly group. Before the weather abruptly interrupted today’s event over 1000 people had attended the event. When the rain hit the event organizers did a great job of making sure everyone was safe and taken care of. The event was cancelled for the rest of today. This also meant the cancellation of the Remax hot air balloon. Organizers are hoping to have to have the popular balloon ride back tomorrow evening. The cost for the ride is $10.00 with all proceeds going to Community Care.
Wingfest resumes Sunday at 11 a.m. weather permitting. Wing enthusiasts are encouraged to vote for their favorite so the organizers can declare who has the best wings in Niagara.
