While filling up on the best wings and pizza Uxbridge has to offer; a dance, raffle draws, and a silent auction will also be taking place.
Big Brothers Big Sisters North Durham continue to support children in local communities.
Money raised from the Wing and Pizza night will be going to help fund several in-school mentoring programs. “Money raised will be going towards our school-based mentoring programs including: Kids-in-Motion, Go-Girls!, and Game On, as well as our traditional mentoring program outside of school,” said Krista Webb, Special Events Coordinator at Big Brothers Big Sisters North Durham.
