Wings For Wishes

Flashback to 80s Prom 312x214 

Make-A-Wish Champions Gal Bensaadon & Brian Exelbert and Sports Grill hosted the 4th Annual Wings For Wishes on Saturday, March 10, 2018. This year, more than 1500 people came to eat, drink and raise funds to grant wishes for children in our community. The event kicked off with an exciting chicken-wing eating heat between our local news stations (WSVN-TV, WPLG Local 10 /, NBC 6) and more than 60 other teams battled it out after them. Aside from the competition, guests also enjoyed boneless wings, desserts, drinks, music, raffles and family-friendly activities in the Kid Zone. In all, a record-breaking $200,000 was raised, which is enough funds to grant the wishes of 40 children with critical illnesses.
