17th Annual Pocono Chicken Wing-Off Fundraiser Lands at Shawnee Mountain

Shawnee-on-Delaware, PA –  Ski Shawnee Inc. is pleased to announce the 2012 Pocono Chicken Wing-Off, an important annual fundraiser for Monroe County Meals on Wheels, will be held Sunday, August 12 on the spacious Shawnee Mountain festival grounds at the popular Monroe County ski area.

Scheduled noon to 4pm and held rain or shine, the festive event promises a variety of tasty, hot, and unique wings prepared by approximately 15 of the Pocono region’s most popular restaurants.  Festival attendees pay as they go for wings, beverages, and other food. Proceeds from all wings sold go to benefit  Monroe County Meals on Wheels, which traditionally receives over $12,000 from the event held each August.


Wings are judged in four categories: Chef’s Choice, Most Original, and the grand prizes, People’s Choice for Hottest Wing and People’s Choice for Best Tasting Wing. Each category winner receives an award plaque, $250 prize check, and bragging rights for the winning entry.wingoffpic2The event schedule includes contests, outdoor music, craft and food vendors, face painting and a children’s magic show. Mimi Mikels, executive director of Meals on Wheels, comments “Meals on Wheels volunteers deliver nutritious meals to approximately 150 homebound people a day who are unable to provide for themselves.  The Chicken Wing-Off  is a 16-year Pocono Mountain tradition and one of the most popular events of the summer. We attribute its success to the area restaurants and wing chefs that participate, our sponsors, and our host sites, including our new host, Shawnee Mountain. 

This event is a reflection of how the Pocono community and area non-profits can join forces to make a difference and is our single largest fundraiser for the year.” Mikels continues, “This event would not be possible if not for the local restaurants and businesses that volunteer their time and donate their staff and wings to Meals on Wheels.  They spend hours dishing out thousands of wings making it possible to provide food for the homebound.”

Jim Tust, spokesperson for Shawnee Mountain, said, “Now is the time for Pocono restaurants and chefs to register. The earlier you submit your entry, the more print and airtime we will be able to provide to help promote your business.” Contact Tamy Galfo for details and registration forms by calling 570-421-7231 x 245.

Shawnee Mountain is located in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania just off Exit 309 of Interstate 80.  Call 570-421-7231.  For lodging information, call 800-SHAWNEE (Shawnee Inn), 888-Fernwood (Fernwood Resort) or 800-POCONOS (visitors bureau).  Click on www.shawneemt.com where more information and on-line booking links are available.
