Winter Haven, FL -- Today & Tonight Magazine will host the First Annual Wing Fling Tour 2011 Saturday, Sept. 24.

Eight locations have pulled together to help raise money for the Humane Society of Polk County through food & fun. The tour is $35 per person with registration 8 a.m. - 10 a.m. at the Winter Haven Chamber of Commerce on their breezeway, 401 Avenue B, NW, Winter Haven and the tour runs from 10:30 a.m. - 8:30 p.m.  All seats must be reserved in advance at www.DontBeChicken.net.
