Rochester ready to wing it

November 1, 2017 by  

This fall, Rochester will be the place to be for those who love chicken wings and all the ways they can be prepared.

This will be the sixth year for the Cluck Crawl, which sees participants sample the wings at a variety of area eateries and then vote for the one that was their favorite. The “crawlers” will receive transportation to the various venues that will be taking part in the event, and the monies raised will be donated to the Alzheimer’s Association of Rochester.

At each of the locations on the crawl, the ticket holders will stop for about 45 minutes to sample the wings that will be provided free of charge. Those who want to push the envelope can take part in the “hottest sauce” competition, and vote for the entry they feel was the spiciest. Along with all of this, there will be raffle and other prize draws throughout the day.

Each person who participates in this event will receive a voting ballot, T-shirt, and bus transportation. The ticket price is $45 each. A printing services supplier can provide shirts, banners, and a wide assortment of branded items for a fundraiser like this.

The chicken wing and pub crawl has been planned for the afternoon of November 18. More information about the function, as well as the organization it supports, can be found on its website.
