Grand Rapids, MI, April 14, 2023 – Baruch Senior Ministries, a 501(c)(3) faith-based nonprofit, and the 13th largest multi-site nonprofit assisted living provider in the country, is once again hosting their annual Wing-Eating Fundraiser, the 2023 Wing-A-Thon!
This year Baruch welcomes 32 two-person wing-eating teams, 9 participating communities, and 9 community sponsors! These two-person teams will be competing to see who can eat the most chicken wings in one hour and raise the most funds for their Baruch community.
One Baruch community, Georgetown & Cambridge in Grandville, MI, got creative with their fundraising tactics. They dressed up in inflatable chicken costumes to advertise this event so they can build a new patio for their residents to enjoy this summer. Check out their video!
Last year, 17 two-person teams, from seven Baruch communities participated in this hour-long wing-eating competition! They raised over $10,000 and ate a total of 1,276.5 chicken wings! With almost double the number of teams as last year, Baruch Senior Ministries is hoping to increase the amount of funds raised and the amount of chicken wings eaten.
Baruch Senior Ministries invites the community to tune in on Facebook or YouTube to watch this fundraiser LIVE from 2 PM to 3 PM on April 14. Viewers are encouraged to donate or make a pledge for their team of choice! All donations/pledges for this event will be used to complete various projects in the participating Baruch communities.
