Wings Etc. Pataskala hosting local youth fundraiser for mission trip to Cuba

On Sunday, May 22, 2022, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. 20% of all food and soft drink sales will benefit siblings Jocelyn and Eli Dulaney who are embarking on a mission trip to Cuba in June

PATASKALA, Ohio (May 12, 2022)—While new to the community, Wings Etc. Pataskala is already finding ways to give back. On Sunday, May 22, 2022, Wings Etc. Pataskala will host a “Dine to Donate” event where 20% of all food and soft-drink sales from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. will benefit siblings Jocelyn and Eli Dulaney, who are planning a mission trip to Cuba. Wings Etc. Pataskala will also match all donations collected during the fundraiser. Franchisee Melissa Hector said she is excited to help the Dulaney siblings embark on a journey to help others.

“I know this trip will be life-changing, teach perspective and character, as well as how to be a positive influence and take care of others,” said Hector. “Jocelyn and Eli need to raise $3,000 together in order to go, and we want to help any way we can.”

The Dulaney siblings will be attending the mission trip with Real Church of Ohio and plan to leave on June 6. Once in Cuba, the missionaries will build concrete walkways to help local churches become handicap assessable. The group will also spend time helping at local farms, packing food and handing it out to those in need, and assisting an area disabilities organization that is underfunded. They will also be handing out basic hygiene products that many don’t have access to.

“This opportunity will allow them to see outside of their world and help others who are in need of even the simplest of chores and items that we take for granted,” said Hector. “This is our first Dine to Donate event since opening at the end of March, and we are excited for the opportunity to help two of our local youth make a huge impact on the lives of others.”

To help, guests should to bring a Dine to Donate flyer, which can be obtained at the Real Church in Pinkerton, Ohio, and will be passed out throughout the Pataskala community. During the fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 22, 20% of all dine-in and carry-out food and soft drink sales will benefit the Dulaney siblings’ mission trip to Cuba. All donations collected will be matched dollar for dollar by Wings Etc. Pataskala.

Wings Etc. Pataskala is owned and operated by Melissa and John Hector and is located at 7200 Hazelton-Etna Road SW in Pataskala, Ohio.
