The Child Advocacy Center will hold the second annual CAC Chicken Wing & Micro-Brew Fest Feb. 1 as part of the annual Warm Up Oswego celebration.
The CAC event will be held from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center, located on East First Street in Oswego.
The second annual CAC Chicken Wing and Micro-Brew Fest will feature chicken wings from a variety of Oswego County’s favorite eateries.
Restaurants will offer samples of their signature chicken wings as they compete for the CAC’s Blue Ribbon Award for the best chicken wing.
Additionally, samples will be available for a wide selection of micro-brews, courtesy of Eagle Beverage of Oswego.
Executive Director Karrie Damm is looking forward to the event and is excited to once again be a part of Warm Up Oswego.
“Last year’s Chicken Wing and Mirco-Brew Fest was such a huge success that we have decided to make it an annual event,” she said. “We are looking to build on our previous success and make this year’s Chicken Wing and Micro-Brew Fest bigger and better than last year’s.
“Thanks to the efforts of our fundraising committee: Ray Cruz, Jake Mulcahey, Karen Perwitz, Elizabeth Fadden, Jolene Bechtel, Bonnie Farmer, Sara Buske, Stephanie Hammond, Jenny Donohue, Melanie Proper and Gail Godici, as well as our dedicated board members, we have added a number of eateries to the wing competition and moved the event to a much larger venue to provide our guests with a more comfortable atmosphere and the opportunity to enjoy even more choices of chicken wings and micro-brews. We are happy to be a part of Warm Up Oswego and are excited about holding the event at the beautiful Lake Ontario Event and Conference Center.”
In addition to the chicken wing and micro-brew tasting, the event will also feature an “Attitude Adjustment Hour” from 5 to 6 p.m. and live entertainment from 6 to 10 p.m.
All proceeds from the CAC’s Chicken Wing & Micro-Brew Fest will benefit the CAC and their efforts to serve children and their families affected by child abuse.
“The epidemic of child abuse continues to plague Oswego County,” said Damm. “With the support of concerned community members we can raise the awareness of child abuse and develop the resources necessary to allow the CAC continue its mission of responding to child abuse in ways that bring about healing and justice for children and their families, and working to reduce and prevent child abuse in our communities.”
