Mimi Mikels, executive director of Meals on Wheels, comments “We could not have our most important fund-raiser without the restaurants that are extremely generous in preparing and serving the wings and without the businesses that sponsor the Wing-Off. The proceeds from this year’s Wing-Off will enable us to provide 2100 meals to elderly and disabled homebound people in Monroe County.”

Scheduled noon to 4pm, the festive event had a variety of 46 tasty, hot, and unique wings prepared by 11 of the Pocono region’s most popular restaurants and businesses; The Log Cabin Bar & Grill, The Historic Tom X Pub, RayPriceCars.com, Pocono Environmental Education Center (PEEC), Scorecard Sports Bar & Grill, The Big A Grillehouse & Tavern, Tickle My Pig BBQ, Jubilee Restaurant, Wintergreens Patio Grill, The Shawnee Inn & Golf Resort, and The Frogtown Chophouse.  Festival attendees paid as they went for wings, beverages, and other food.
