Wings Etc. Grill & Pub Partners with MDA for 2014 Shamrocks Promotion

The Fort Wayne-based Wings Etc. Grill & Pub franchise system will partner with Muscular Dystrophy Association of Northern Indiana for the annual MDA Shamrocks Promotion, which runs February 15th - March 31th. Proceeds from the promotion send local children to MDA Summer Camp at Camp Potowotami in South Milford, IN.

Fort Wayne, IN (PRWEB) February 15, 2014 - Eighteen Wings Etc. Grill & Pub locations in Indiana, Illinois, Michigan and South Carolina will partner with MDA for their annual six-week Shamrock promotion. Locations will sell green and gold Shamrocks for $1 and $5 respectively. Funds raised from 2014 Shamrock sales will help send area children ages 6 to 17 affected with neuromuscular diseases to MDA Summer Camp at no cost. The program also helps to support MDA worldwide research program and their national network of 200 medical clinics, including the MDA clinic at Lutheran Hospital in Fort Wayne, and Elkhart Hospital in Elkhart, IN.

According to Ashley Zumstein, Executive Director of MDA of Northern Indiana, “We’re so pleased to add Wings Etc. Grill & Pub to our list of corporate partners. Our annual Shamrocks promotion is the nation’s largest charitable fundraising campaign associated with St. Patrick’s Day, and we’re excited to see participation in the program grow, particularly among locally owned area businesses.”

Wings Etc. Grill & Pub joins a prestigious group of MDA partners including Burger King, Jiffy Lube, Lowe's, Harley-Davidson, 7UP, and the International Association of Fire Fighters. In addition to giving back through corporate partnerships, Wings Etc. locations offer fundraising opportunities to schools, churches and other organizations in their local communities with their Dine to Donate Fundraising Events. The program is becoming increasingly popular as awareness grows, and offers a fun and unique way for groups to raise money to support a cause.

About Wings Etc. Grill & Pub

Wings Etc. Grill & Pub is a sports bar concept that gained first notoriety when, in 1994, Founder Jim Weaver’s signature “Jumbo Wings” beat out a host of Buffalo Wing competitors in the South Bend (IN) Tribune’s “Best Wings” annual reader’s poll. It’s a title Wings Etc. has won for 19 consecutive years, and the chain’s popularity with South Bend sports fans - and those graduating from its famed local university - has propelled Weaver’s concept from a single Mishawaka location into a multiregional franchise company operating 26 pubs in Indiana, Michigan, Illinois and now in North Carolina. The chain features wings, ribs, char-grilled burgers, hot oven subs, wraps, salads, flatbreads and popular appetizers, as well as kid’s meals, daily lunch specials, daily drink specials, and full bar service, all offered in a casual, friendly, HDTV-filled sports-themed restaurant.
