Calling all chicken wing enthusiasts! We are excited to announce the return of the Wings For Wishes Professional Wing Eating Championship at the 9th Annual Wings For Wishes event in Miami, FL! The inaugural championship was a huge success, and we are ready to come back even stronger in 2023!
Attendees of Wings For Wishes not only will you get to indulge in delicious wings but will also be supporting a great cause. The goal of Wings For Wishes is to raise both money and awareness for Make-A-Wish Southern Florida. Major League Eating is honored & proud to be working with such a wonderful organization that helps make wishes come true.
Last year’s event saw what some consider an upset – Geoff Esper with 192 Wing in 10 minutes. This was a win that propelled him to an unbelievable 2022 & a wave he continues to ride into 2023. Will Esper retain his title? Or will a new Ruler of Wings be crowned?
Save the date! It's going to be a wing-filled day that you won't want to miss. We look forward to seeing you there!
