Wings Etc. teams up with guests to raise funds for Beacon Children’s Hospital

For the third year, several Northern and Central Indiana-area Wings Etc. Grill & Pub locations are participating in the Beacon Children’s Hospital annual fundraiser

SOUTH BEND, Ind. (July 14, 2021) — Now through the end of July, Wings Etc. Grill & Pub is partnering with dine-in and carry-out guests to give back to Beacon Children’s Hospital.

To participate, guests can stop into any corporate-owned Wings Etc. location in Northern and Central Indiana to purchase Beacon Children’s Hospital paper pinup tokens. Guests can also “round up” purchases to the next dollar. These contributions will be combined with funds raised via Beacon Health Systems’ Four Winds Invitational, a golf tournament that has raised over $700,000 for Beacon Health Systems in the past decade. Wings Etc. is a proud sponsor of the Beacon Health Systems’ Four Winds Invitational Golf Tournament (part of the Symetra Tour).

“Helping children and their families is an essential part of our community mission,” said Ryan Flickinger, Wings Etc. VP of Company Store Operations. “This priority was established over 25 years ago by founder Jim Weaver at our first Wings Etc. location on Grape Road. We’re proud to continue supporting local children, families, and communities through Beacon Health Systems.”

Proceeds from the 2021 Beacon Children’s Hospital fundraiser will be used to help purchase a new NICU transport ambulance.

Donations can be made at the following corporate-owned Wings Etc. Grill & Pub locations: Mishawaka, South Bend, Elkhart, Goshen, Osceola, La Porte, Valparaiso, Rochester, Marion, Bluffton, Fort Wayne at Bluffton Road and DuPont Road, Dunlap, Lafayette South, Lafayette East, West Lafayette, Franklin, Noblesville, Columbia City, and Peru.
