Community donates to WINGs
Cancer support charity
by Duane Williams, KLCB-KTNY Radio
May 27, 2011

The community raised $43,000 for WINGs this year.

Libby - a little over $19,000. This includes the WINGs walk, bowling, and Cinco de Mayo. Cinco de Mayo served about 175 people. The silent auction raised about $920.00 and the auction of the four pinatas made by the middle school raised about $215.00, and $1300 from the meal, for approximately $2400.00 for the event.

Troy - almost $14,000 including bowling, WINGs walk and the high school kids.

Yaak - $10,000 from the spaghetti feed and the live auction.

These numbers are net.

WINGs usually raises between $40,000 and $50,000 in an average year - so this year is on the low side of that average, but even in this economy, folks have been very generous and WINGs Week was another success.
