Last Wednesday, Greater Windham Business Exchange hosted its first GWBE Wing Challenge at All About Kids in Windham. The event brought in stiff competition with The Beacon in Raymond winning the popular vote and taking home bragging rights and a plaque to be hung in their restaurant for the year.
The wing challenge partnered with area businesses to raise money for Hannah Warrior Princess’ mission of raising money to purchase fun play sheets to be giving to children at Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital.
Hannah was diagnosed with Leukemia and spent a lot of time at Barbara Bush Children’s Hospital. She’s home now and wants to give back to other children staying at the hospital. The play sheets go home with the children after they use them at the hospital.
The event raised over $600 with admission and donations combined. This will purchase at least 60 sets of sheets for ill children.
GWBE is a 501(c)(3) networking group that raises money for local charities and non-profits. Save the date for the next event on September 18, a block party carnival at Commons Drive in Windham, to raise money for Marine Mammals of Maine. For more information, visit www.gwbe.me.
