Saturday April 26th, Wings for Our Troops will be holding a fundraiser. Whitey & his Crew will be grilling chicken again this year with all proceeds going to WFOT to help send our enlisted military members home before/after deployment or for family emergencies. Please do what you can to attend and buy chicken or, just spread the word. We want this to be even bigger than last year!
There will be t-shirts and stickers for sale while supplies last. Come early as the chicken goes fast. $3 for a half or $5 for 2 halves.
April 26th 2014, Whitey Chicken Pit on Hwy. 12 next to Harps and Garners, by the RR tracks. Chicken comes off around 10:30 to 11:00am.
Like Whitey on Facebook. “Whitey Smith Stadium” for posts and pictures of all chicken cooks!
The Wings for Our Troops Foundation was born out of our desire to honor our son, CPL Chad S Wade, USMC, who was killed in action while in combat in Afghanistan on December 1, 2010. Wings for Our Troops Foundation strives to assist Marines/Soldiers in getting home before and/or after deployment or for family emergencies should they not have the financial means to do so otherwise. Most don’t know that these trips home for the enlisted are paid out of their own pockets and on a very modest paycheck. We cannot imagine not having had those 11 days with Chad before he deployed to Afghanistan. We never want one military man or woman to miss the chance to spend time with their loved ones before and/or after deployment. We are forever grateful for the time we had with Chad and for the commitment and sacrifice of all our armed forces.
