The Wing-Off brings together area businesses, celebrating the community’s mutual appreciation of the buffalo wing. For the past 5 years, the Wing-Off has experienced exponential success raising money for local charities. 

With a Wing-Off sponsorship, your business will be well recognized by an anticipated 3,000+ crowd.

*Each level limited to one sponsorship.  Sponsorship levels will be awarded on a first-come first-serve basis. If none of the available sponsorship packages appeal to your business, but you would still like to give back, please reach out to us!

The lone goal of our event is to raise money for local non-profits.

About our organization: The Western Maryland Jaycees are a volunteer organization of active citizens ages 21-40, dedicated to Western Maryland, sharing the belief that in order to create positive change we must take collective action to improve ourselves and the world.
