Wayne-Sanderson Farms supporting "Battle of the Buffalo" festival

The company is donating five tons of fresh chicken wings.

Wayne-Sanderson Farms is proud to supply five tons of fresh chicken wings for Huntsville's 15th annual "Battle of the Buffalo" festival and charity fundraiser on April 13. Held at Big Spring Park, this event brings together chefs, restaurants and wing enthusiasts to compete for the best recipe while supporting cancer research and treatments in the community.

Jennifer Hurt, field recruiter at Wayne-Sanderson Farms’ Decatur complex, expressed excitement for the company's third year participating in the festival, emphasizing its commitment to the event's philanthropic cause. Wayne-Sanderson Farms will have 25-50 volunteers on-site to support the community and the fundraiser.

Local personalities and food experts will judge the "Tastiest Wings in the Tennessee Valley" cook-off, with Wayne-Sanderson Farms’ Corporate Chef Beau Batchelor among the panel. Batchelor, a food scientist and research chef, is eager to see contestants bring innovation and unique flavors to their wing recipes.

Proceeds from the event, co-sponsored by Clearview Cancer Institute, will benefit cancer research, treatment and patient support. Grant Hershbine, executive director of Battle of the Buffalo, highlighted the event's significant impact on local cancer patients and their families.

The festival, running from noon until 6 pm, will also feature a 5k Salmon Run, food vendors, live music and family-friendly activities. Tickets, available for pre-order at $15, include approximately two pounds of wings and a beverage, with on-the-day purchases at $20.
