Big Kahuna Wing Festival’s 2020 Donation Drive

Big Kahuna Wing Festival may be cancelled for 2020, but the charities the festival benefits each year still need your help now more than ever. Find out how you can donate here!

The 8th Annual Big Kahuna Wing Festival has been cancelled for 2020, but we want to help the charities the festival benefits each year. Over the course of the past 7 years, Big Kahuna has made over $400,000 in donations to local charities in East Tennessee. Each year, they donate to local charities including: Empty Stocking Fund, Boys & Girls Club, Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, Survivor Fitness, and the University of Tennessee Culinary and Catering Program.

Unfortunately with the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, they’ve made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Big Kahuna Wing Festival. However, the charities that benefit from the festival need your support now more than ever! Please continue to help our mission of serving the needs of our community.


Join us as we help the charities that will be affected by the cancellation of this event. This was the day that tickets were supposed to go on sale for the event so instead we will use this time to help! They don’t want the giving to stop because the event is cancelled.

Big Kahuna Wing Festival’s 2020 Donation Drive Benefits:

Empty Stocking FundEach year the Empty Stocking Fund provides food and toys to disadvantaged families during the holidays. Volunteers hand out around 3000 baskets filled with gifts, toys and food for families in need. Family and Food mean a lot to Big Kahuna Wings! 

Second Harvest Food BankThere are more than 160,000 people going hungry in East Tennessee. Second Harvest Food Bank collects food and money from grocery stores, corporate sponsors, community food drives and individuals to help feed those in need. 

Boys and Girls ClubThe after-school programs and summer programs give opportunities for children to explore and learn while socializing in educational activities. They offer sports programs, gardening and cooking clubs, social and emotional wellness programs and YouthForce teen programs.
