ST. THOMAS — The check presentation ceremony for the 9th annual King of the Wing Contest (KOW) was held Tuesday morning at Ralph M. Paiewonsky Library at the University of the Virgin Islands’ St. Thomas Campus, a release issued today makes known. Alpine Securities USVI and White Bay Group, organizers of the competition, revealed the donation amount from this year’s event, which was held on June 9, to be $63,009.64.

Sponsored by Island Wiring, LLC, Corona and Captain Morgan, both distributed by Bellows International and produced by Alpine Securities and White Bay Group, King of the Wing entered its 9th year with all proceeds benefiting Junior Achievement (JAVI) of the Virgin Islands, according to the release.

The contest took place on Saturday, June 9 on the shores of Magens Bay beach in St. Thomas. Forty-two teams consisting of the top local restaurants, businesses, organizations and chicken wing connoisseurs set up their grills and cooking stations starting from 12 noon to 6:00 p.m. in order to cook up mouthwatering chicken wings, wow the attendees, and claim bragging rights for the best tasting wings on the island.

This year’s celebrity guest judge, actor and former host of the food reality series “Man versus Food”, was Adam Richman. Mr. Richman, a foodie, tasted all 42 wings that were entered into this year’s competition. He is also known for traveling across the world to participate in various food-eating challenges shown on the Travel Channel.

In addition to being one of St. Thomas’s most celebrated and anticipated family-friendly culinary and community event, King of the Wing serves as a crucial fundraising platform for select local charities, according to the release.

JAVI is dedicated to teaching young people in the Virgin Islands about financial literacy, work readiness and entrepreneurship. The mission of JAVI is to inspire and prepare young people to succeed in today’s global economy.
