Wing Shack Collects Over $6000 in Donations for the MDA
In yet another display of generosity by the community of Northern Colorado, the Wing Shack collected a total of $6,231 during the Muscular Dystrophy’s Association’s annual Shamrock fundraiser. The fundraiser, which the Wing Shack has participated in for the past 6 years, allows customers to purchase a green shamrock for $1 or a gold shamrock for $5 with all the proceeds from their purchase donated directly to the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA).
The proceeds of the fundraiser are used to help send kids to MDA Summer Camp in Empire, CO. MDA Summer Camp provides a week-long opportunity where kids with limited muscle strength and mobility receive a life-changing experience in an environment without barriers. It’s a week where they’re free to enjoy adventures like horseback riding, swimming and fishing, develop lifelong friendships and build self-confidence and independence that are critical to living longer and growing stronger. The total cost to send one kid to MDA Summer Camp is approximately $2,000. The Wing Shack thanks all guests who donated during this fundraiser for helping the company pay for 3 Northern Colorado kids to have “the best week of the year.”
“We are so grateful for the support of Wing Shack and its customers,” said Heather Miller, Area Director for Muscular Dystrophy Association. “It’s truly amazing to see a company and community come together to change lives one dollar at a time. Thank you to all who bought shamrocks this year.”
