Dear Prospective Festival Sponsors,
The 5th Annual Big Kahuna Wing Festival will be held on the 17th of June, 2017 at Worlds Fair Park in downtown Knoxville. This event will host the park with the Sweet Smell of Hot Wings, Unreserved Participants, and Terrific Music with a Wing Eating Contest, Silent Auction, Kids Corner, and Fun for the Whole Family! Combine this with some of the Best Wing Recipes and Teams and we have one Fantastic Event all to Benefit Empty Stocking Fund, Second Harvest, and The Butterfly Fund of Knoxville.
Founded in 2013, the Big Kahuna Wing Festival has raised $160,000 for our charity groups and we are hopeful to make an even bigger impact in 2017.
The mission of the News Sentinel Empty Stocking Fund (ESF) is to provide food and toys to disadvantaged East Tennesseans during the holidays.
Second Harvest Food Bank is the East Tennessee region’s largest hunger-relief charity; operating programs in 18 counties. The food bank secures and distributes over 16 million pounds of food and grocery products annually through a network of over 500 partnering non-profit organizations such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and schools.
The families of Emily Barger and Maddie Harrill established The Butterfly Fund at the East Tennessee Foundation in memory of their daughters. Both of these beautiful little girls were diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of childhood cancer, in 2007. Sadly, both of these girls passed away just weeks apart during the summer of 2008. The Butterfly Fund supports research, treatment and services dedicated to the defeat of childhood cancers.
Please mark your calendar, June 17th, 2017 and make plans to come listen to fantastic music and eat some of the best Wings from around the South. Our Team of Volunteers at The Big Kahuna Wing Festival hopes to see you at Worlds Fair Park, Downtown Knoxville from 12:00 P.M. to 8:00 P.M. on Saturday, June 17th, 2017.
