The third annual Wings For Wishes Block Party will take place on Saturday, Mar. 11, behind Sports Grill South Miami. Wings for Wishes is a family-friendly event centered around Sports Grill’s famous chicken wings and raising money to sponsor wishes through Make-A-Wish.
Wings For Wishes is hosted by Sports Grill South Miami and offers a “block party” format with a delectable wing tasting component, in addition to the crowd-favorite wing eating competition. Sports Grill will feature six different tasting stations, allowing patrons to pair their food with a variety of different craft beers, wine or cocktails. The afternoon will feature live music, a deejay, and plenty of fun games for kids and adults alike.
Wings for Wishes is a third-party event hosted by Make-A-Wish Champions Gal Bensaadon and Brian R. Exelbert, two local professionals committed to making life better for kids with life-threatening medical conditions. In its first two years, Wings For Wishes raised over $50,000, all going directly to granting wishes. The 2017 presenting sponsor is French’s, the classic American condiment brand.
