Announcing: Wings For Wishes 2!

J. Timothy’s Taverne and the CT Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation are very excited to announce the 2nd Wings For Wishes chicken wing eating contest. Last year’s inaugural event raised over $11,000, which allowed Make-A-Wish to grant a child’s wish. Read about that here.

This year’s competition will begin on Thursday, August 8th with the first Playoff. Playoff rounds continue on August 14th and 15th, culminating with the Championship on Thursday, August 22nd. The event last year was incredible fun; the dedication of the teams and their supporters ensured a successful competition with one goal: make a kid’s wish come true. Done! Now, let’s do it again this year.

All of the details can be found in the sections at the top of this page (on a mobile phone, choose MENU). Grab your friends, family, and/or co-workers and form a team. Team registration begins on Tuesday, July 9th. Thanks for your support of Make-A-Wish and J. Timothy’s. Get ready to eat some wings and grant a child’s wish!


Announcing: Wings for Wishes!

We are super excited to announce the first-ever J. Timothy’s Taverne Wings for Wishes chicken wing eating contest to benefit the CT Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation!

People have been asking us for years (many, many years) to have a chicken wing eating contest so we decided: let’s do it! And while a wing eating contest alone would be great fun, let’s team up with a great charity organization to make it a fantastic event that also benefits kids with life-threatening medical conditions. Here’s what Make-A-Wish is all about:

We’re on a Mission! We grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy. There’s nothing like making a wish come true for a child facing a life-threatening medical condition. When we grant children their heartfelt wishes, we help them experience hope, strength and joy.

Our goals for this event: to find the best/fastest wing eating team and grant the wish of child and for all involved to have a ton of fun!

Team registration begins July 23rd. The playoffs start August 16th with the Final Championship on September 8th. Each team will have 5 members. And we’ve made the competition a bit unique so not every team member has to be the fastest wing eater around. Even kids can compete!

Click on the links above (About, Schedule, Competition Details) for all of the details. Get your wing eating Team together now to have fun while benefiting a great charity! These kids know what it’s all about.
