Wingfest Gets Soggy Start, Still Busy

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. -

Despite the soggy weather Saturday--folks in the lowcountry came out to grab some grub and support one local agency at the 28th annual Wingfest.

The Island Rec Center's fundraising event--held at Shelter Cove Park on Hilton Head Island--brought out restaurants from around the region, all looking to make the best-tasting wings.

And folks gobbled them up while trying to have fun and stay dry.

"Our slogan at the Rec Center is 'we build community,' so what better community event then having 22 restaurants, you got people not just from Hilton Head, we got people from Bluffton, Savannah, Beaufort and people do travel in for their spring breaks, so it's just something for everybody to get together and eat some chicken wings," said organizer, Joe Cain.

It was also about trying to raise some money.

Organizers say they planned to raise more than $30,000 for the Island Rec scholarship fund at today's event despite the rain.
