In a season of highly anticipated contests and sports fans indulging in an array of spicy fare, Team Memory Makers has organized the “Don’t Sweat it” Hellfire Wing Challenge to raise funds for November’s Walk to End Alzheimer’s. Contestants from Team Memory Makers and a handful of brave supporters will be faced with the challenge of eating 10 Hot Wings without throwing in the towel for a glass of cold milk.

Each contestant will be sponsored per-wing with the proceeds going towards the team’s contribution to the Alzheimer’s Association. The fiery wings themselves will be devilishly prepared and donated by Chef Tony of the Wilmington Boys and Girls Club.

The challenge will be held downtown at Orton’s Pool Room and there will also be an assortment of raffle prizes up for grabs. Attendees can purchase raffle tickets on site for prizes donated from Antonio’s Pizza and Pasta, Chops Deli, Elsewhere Salon, Hot Pink Cake Stand, Chef Christa, Reggie’s, and RA Jeffreys – just to name a few!

Come on out and support Team Memory Makers and sponsor a contestant!

Monday, October 20th, 2014; Event starts at 7:00 PM; Wing Challenge will begin at 8:00 PM

Orton’s Pool Hall, 133 North Front Street, Wilmington, NC 28401

Entry is free and $1.00 raffle tickets will be available at the door. For additional event information or to sponsor a contestant, please contact Kylie Deanne Edgar: (910) 465-9120
