The Hockomock Area YMCA will sponsor its 6th annual Wing Off on Saturday, September 15th at Fusion 5 Sports Bar in Foxboro beginning at 6:30 p.m. Sample wings from the best local restaurants and vote for your favorites.

Purchase tickets online at www.hockymca.org. Go to “Events” then “Wing Off” to buy your tickets today. Tickets can also be purchased at any Hockomock Area YMCA branch or at the door night of the event. Tickets are $20 per person and include sampling of wings which will take place from 7:00pm – 9:00pm. This is a 21+ event. Join us for great food, great company, and live music! Cash bar. Additional food and drink available for purchase.

The Hockomock Y is grateful to its event sponsors including Blue Hill Plumbing & Heating of North Attleboro and Bob Rogers Roofing of Holliston and Auburn.

Local restaurants will bring their best wings to this event and compete for the coveted crown of ‘Best Wings’ in the area. Two winners will be announced; one for best buffalo wing and one for most unique wing. Restaurants include: Chieftain Pub (Plainville), East Coast Grill (Cambridge), Fusion 5 (Foxboro), James’ Breakfast & More (Wrentham), Red Stone Grill (N. Attleboro), Sodexo (Franklin), Twenty8 (Foxboro) and more!

In 2011, King Street Café of Franklin won for best buffalo wing. The winner of the 2011 most creative wing was Twenty8 at the Renaissance Hotel at Patriot Place, Foxboro with their cranberry & sweet chili wing. In 2010, Chieftain Pub won most unique wing with their toasted coconut wing. In 2010, LA Roberts of North Attleboro and The Boneyard Restaurant of Seekonk tied for best buffalo wing. Many of these winners will return to defend their crowns.

The fun doesn’t stop there! Enjoy live music. Local bands include the Matt Borrello Band.

All proceeds will benefit the Y’s Reach Out for Youth & Families Campaign. At the Y, strengthening community is the cause. Every day, the Y works side by side with its neighbors and the community to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn, grow, and thrive. Reach Out for Youth & Families is the annual support campaign to provide a YMCA experience to more than 15,000 local children and families in need.
