WIP's Wing Bowl 23 To Have Mardi Gras Theme
December 8, 2014 at 12:43 PM (PT)
CBS RADIO Sports WIP/PHILADELPHIA's 23rd annual eating competition WING BOWL 23 will sport a MARDI GRAS theme this time around when it fills the home of the FLYERS and SIXERS, WELLS FARGO CENTER, on JANUARY 30th. Defending champion MOLLY SCHULYER will be competing once again in the chicken wing-eating contest, known for its early morning revelry, which can at times get very rowdy.
WIP morning host ANGELO CATALDI, who, with co-host AL MORGANTI launched the event in a hotel ballroom, said, "WING BOWLhas been compared to the MARDI GRAS for so many years now, we decided to turn it into a PHILADELPHIA version of the NEW ORLEANS celebration this time around -- with bigger prizes, sexier women and the best competitive eaters in the world. Mark the date now -- JANUARY 30th, for the biggest party of the year. And if the EAGLES make it to the SUPER BOWL the biggest pep rally, too. What a WING BOWL. Don't miss it."
STEVEN SINGER JEWELERS and SUGARHOUSE CASINO are the sponsors of this year's event, with proceeds benefiting the PHILADELPHIA POLICE DEPARTMENT SURVIVOR’S FUND, POLICE ATHLETIC LEAGUE, COMCAST-SPECTACOR CHARITIES, and others to be named. Tickets wil go on sale TUESDAY at 9a (ET).
