I read earlier that this years 15th Annual Wing Fling, which was held at the Carolina Beach Boardwalk for the first time, pulled in a hefty profit of $8,000. The money raised was divided between the Katie B. Hines Senior Center in Carolina Beach and the Wilmington Residential Adolescent Achievement Place program.
Well, the other day I received the Senior Center's bimonthly email and they had some very nice words for the UNC Wilmington event organizers. It seemed fitting to post for others to see:
$$$$ OUR SURPRISE DONATION $$$$
On Saturday, March 26th, the 15th Annual Wilmington Wing Fling was held at the Boardwalk in Carolina Beach. This charity event is sponsored & organized by students and several professors from UNCW. On Thursday, April 21st, we were delightfully SURPRISED with a DONATION to Katie B. Hines Senior Center by this group in the amount of $4,000.00 from the proceeds of the Wing Fling!
Please encourage our Mayor, Town Council and Police Chief to invite them back to hold the 16th Annual Wilmington Wing Fling here in Carolina Beach next year!
