Today I attended the 1st Annual Wing Fling/Benefit Michael Fernandes Foundation for Bone Marrow Research. The foundation is in memory of my friend Kim’s brother Michael. She’s organized a few events to raise money for the foundation and this one was really successful. Over $8,000 was raised, too! The event was at The Beach House in North Falmouth and it was very well attended.
|When I got there I took photos of all the competitors. There were 8 or 9 entrants on both the professional and amateur sides. There were the traditional buffalo wings, wood grilled wings, and some home made recipes that were extremely tasty. My favorite on the Amateur side was a wing called the Rapscallion wing. It had a sweetness that catches you with its heat on the back end. This wing won the runner up on the Amateur side. The winning entry on the Amateur side was a General Taos wing. There were so many good wings to try and I tried them all.||
Over on the Professional side there were many restuarants from around the Cape participating. My favorite wing was from J.R. Brody’s Roadside Tavern in East Falmouth. I there was a traditional Buffalo Wing and also a Ginger Garlic one, both were delicious. The runner up winner on the Professional side was a wood grilled wing and the top winner was a boneless buffalo wing from Clancy’s in Dennisport.
For my part, as a volunteer I took photos of everything that was happening. I posted all those photos on Facebook in connection with the fan page and event pages for the wing fling. In addition to the wings there were raffles, a silent auction, a kayak raffle, a 50/50 raffle and also a live band called Sound Asylum. They were pretty fun, the crowd enjoyed them, especially the four or five little kids dancing right up in front of them, those kids had some energy. What a well done event, so much fun and raised so much money to help.
I started my day off by heading to the Cape. I got to see all the great work that my Dad has been doing in the house. The attic is going to be amazing when it is complete. He showed me all around the place and the work he has done. I’m looking forward to our summer ahead and getting down to the Cape as often as possible.
Dad and I went down to the Country Fare restaurant for breakfast before I fixed the Cape Internet. Seems that this is my fix the Internet week for sure. I also picked up my kayak to bring it home for this coming Saturday’s event with the Ten Mile River Watershed Council. This is the fourth annual Scoop the Herring Day over at Omega pond and Omega dam. I’ve got to get my XShot kayak mount attached before then.
