Tickets are on sale now for the 21st annual BCI Wing Ding on Thursday, June 20 from 5-9 p.m. at the St. Charles Family Arena. A $35 general admission ticket includes all-you-can-eat chicken wing and barbecue samples from over a dozen restaurants, live music by Trixie Delight, two drink tickets and parking. Additional soda and beer tickets will be sold at the event for $3 each. Reserved tables and special Wing Scholar tickets also are available.

With last year’s event being an unexpected oversell, BCI has made changes for 2019.

“Everyone loves the wings,” said Tony Spielberg, BCI’s CEO, “but this year, we’re adding barbecue for more food and more variety. We’re also capping attendance at 2,500 for a better guest experience and adding more portable restrooms, which we know was an issue last year.”

Known as “the biggest and best charity happy hour in town,” the Wing Ding is historically held the third Thursday in June and is BCI’s largest fundraiser. The event raises awareness and money to provide and expand employment and training opportunities for people with disabilities.
