WHITESBORO, NY – An estimated 1.38 billion chicken wings will be eaten during the upcoming Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and the Los Angeles Rams.

That’s according to the National Chicken Council.

With all the places you can get wings in Central New York, how do you decide which ones are the best?

Thanks to the 3rd Annual CNY Wing Wars, that decision may now be a little easier.

Not only that, the battle of the wings is a tasty way to raise money for people and their families affected by cancer.

The sellout event was held Saturday at Hart’s Hill Inn in Whitesboro.

A panel of celebrity judges, along with over 200 people, sampled chicken wings from 12 different vendors.

The money raised from the event will go to the JM Chubbuck Foundation.

Joseph Chubbuck was diagnosed with a rare, aggressive, and unidentifiable form of cancer during an emergency appendectomy.

Alicia Fleming, Joseph’s sister and the president of the JM Chubbuck Foundation says her family knows what a financial burden cancer can be.

“Throughout his struggle, he realized the amount of financial and emotional stress that cancer puts on families. He really wanted to start a foundation that would help cancer patients and their families.”

Last year the JM Chubbuck Foundation was able to offer assistance 184 times, distributing over $50,000 to aid cancer patients and their families.

Campus Inn Pizza was the judges’ choice for “best wing” and “most unique” wing.

Second place went to O’baby’s, and third, went to Pizza Boys.
