The public gets to sample a wide variety of wings in a blind taste test, then vote for their favorites. The event will be held at the Franklin Terrace Ballroom, 126 Campbell Avenue near Hudson Valley Community College.
Tickets are $20 per person or $35 for a VIP ticket. Tickets and event T-shirts are available at St. Jude the Apostle School, which is the beneficiary of the event. The school is located at 42 Dana Avenue, Wynantskill, and tickets are available there, at the Wynantskill Beverage Mart, and at the businesses competing for the title.
