“Wings Over Swissvale” is a "Chicken Wing Cook-Off” fundraising event being hosted by Swissvale Rotary.
The event will take place on Saturday, Sept. 15, from 2 to 6 p.m. at Les Getz Memorial Field, off Church Street. Tickets are $10 per adult and $5 per child.
"This is the second one and last year we had a really good turnout with seven restaurants participating," said Jo Ellen Welsh, organizer for the event.
"Rotary will be making money from the entrance fee and sale of adult beverages," Welsh said. "Everybody who buys a ticket gets to receive one sample from each vendor, child ticket gets a maximum of five and attendees will have a chance to vote for their favorite wings."
Vendors will not only be able to sell their wings, but also any other food item they wish. Swissvale Rotary will have a booth selling beverages and T-shirts. This will be a family event and there will be kid-friendly activities.
At the end of the event the vendor with the most attendee votes wins the “Wings Over Swissvale” trophy to display in their establishment as well as “clucking” rights for one year.
