CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. (Dec. 3, 2021)—Since 2016, Wings Etc. Cape Girardeau has partnered with Happy Slapowitz’s Toy Bash to raise money and collect toys for children in need during the holidays. On Dec. 6, the tradition continues. On Monday, Dec. 6, from 10:30 a.m. to 11 p.m., 10% of food and non-alcoholic drink sales will benefit Toys for Tots through the Happy Slapowitz’s Toy Bash event. Wings Etc. Cape Girardeau is also a toy drop-off location and is accepting new, unwrapped toys.

“We love being a part of this event each year,” said Wings Etc. Cape Girardeau franchisee Joe Hobbs. “It’s part of the Wings Etc. mission to give back, and partnering with the Happy Slapowitz’s Toy Bash allows us to make sure that children in Southeast Missouri don’t go without on Christmas.”

Wings Etc. Cape Girardeau is an event sponsor for the toy bash, which takes place on Dec. 10 throughout downtown Cape Girardeau. Since 2002, Happy’s Toy Bash has given $300,000 in toys and cash to help children in need thanks to sponsors like Wings Etc. All money and toys donated benefit the Marine Corps Toys for Tots and help local kids through Southeast Missouri.

To help Wings Etc. raise money for the toy bash, guests should show a Dine to Donate flyer to their bartender or server on Dec. 6. Flyers can be found on the Wings Etc. Cape Girardeau Facebook page. Wings Etc. will donate 10% of food and non-alcoholic drink sales for dine-in or carry-out orders to Happy Slapowitz’s Toy Bash.
