Wing nights raises funds for emergency groups

Vernon’s Topping Expectations hosting wing night event June 2 from 2 to 10 p.m.

A Vernon restaurant will host a special event to raise money for organizations involved with helping out with regional flooding issues.

Topping Expectations, on Highway 6 across from the Okanagan Science Centre, will host a Wing Night event from 2 to 10 p.m. Thursday.

“We are cooking up 5,000 chicken wings with proceeds from the sale of the wings going to Vernon Search and Rescue and the Canadian Red Cross,” said Kevin Topping from the restaurant.

One dollar from every alcoholic beverage sold will also be donated to the organizations.

“It’s our way of saying thanks to the people who have been helping out,” said Topping.

Sun-FM’s April Lynn will broadcast her show live from the restaurant, and dignitaries like MLAs Eric Foster and Greg Kyllo, MP Mel Arnold, mayors from Vernon, Coldstream, Lumby, Armstrong and Enderby and the chiefs from the Splatsin and Okanagan Indian Bands will be invited to take part.

You can eat the wings inside the restaurant or take them out. There are 11 different sauces to try with the wings.
