Wing Zone, an Atlanta-based chain, will be giving away samples of its newest flavor, Korean Q.
The giveaway, taking place Dec. 6, is part of a fundraiser for the son of an Alabama franchisee, who was paralyzed after playing his first football game in September at Harvard.
Wing Zone at 351 Southland Drive and 580 Eureka Springs Drive will donate $1 to the Ben Abercrombie Fund for every five free boneless wings given away. And customers can donate directly, too.
“Our franchisees come first at Wing Zone and when we heard about Ben’s injury and the impact this was having on Marty and his family, we banded together to come up with a way to help support them while also giving back to our Flavorholics in the middle of the holiday season,” said Matt Friedman, co-founder and CEO of Wing Zone.
All Wing Zones in the U.S. will give away boneless wings on Wednesday, with no purchase necessary. You can get five free wings, any flavor, but try the new Korean barbecue-inspired flavor with a mixture of sweet, savory and spice.
“We’re giving a dollar but we’re hoping other people will give some money, too, to help with the rehabilitation costs,” said Mike Tackett, Lexington franchise owner. “It’s just a sad thing.”
The Southland location is open 4 p.m. to 1 a.m. and the Eureka Springs Drive location is open 3 p.m. to 1 a.m.
