Best Wings in Pontiac (Cook-off & Fundraiser)

Wings! We love 'em. And we want to find out who can make the BEST wings around. Cactus Ridge Resort is hosting the second annual Pontiac Wing Cook-Off, and we want YOU to enter! Anyone can enter. There is no fee. And everyone is invited to come out and taste all the wings you can handle for just $10 and then vote on your very favorites. Proceeds will go to the Pontiac Fireworks. Anyone entering the contest should deliver a minimum of two dozen wings (more would be better, as we had nearly 100 taste-testers last year) to the Cactus Ridge Cantina between 1:30 and 1:45 p.m. on Saturday, March 25. Please provide a serving utensil for your wings. Carrot and celery sticks and homemade ranch dressing will be provided to go alongside the wings. The Cantina will be serving soft drinks, beer and wine and will host live music during the event. See you there!
