The First Ever Evansville Wingfest was held on Saturday, January 20th at the Veteran’s Memorial Coliseum downtown Evansville. There were 15 different local restaurants in attendance serving up their specialty wings. My friends and I Loved watching the wing eating contest and even the ranch dressing chugging competition! It was such a fun setting at the Coliseum complete with local DJ’s entertaining the crowd, a mechanical bull and face painting for the kids! Thank you Evansville Events for having such a great family friendly day…now, Bring on the Bacon Burger and Beer Fest on April 21st!
Our local non profit for our January event is Uncharted International, Inc. Uncharted started in the hearts and minds of some very mission-minded, globally-focused individuals at a church in Evansville. It quickly began to embrace other churches and expand its reach to more places in the world. Several years ago, it became clear it was time for Uncharted to become it's own movement and organization and have the freedom to work more nimbly so they became a non profit group. They provide medical, educational and economic development in under-resourced countries.
The Uncharted group is currently in Myanmar and will be bringing back handmade items and will be having these products for sale at our January 23rd event! You don't want to miss this!
Their store is located on 400 S Green River Rd and is open 9am-5pm Monday through Friday! I personally bought lots of blankets and scarves for Christmas presents and loved them so much, I went back and bought myself some as well!
Thank you, Uncharted International for being a part of our event!

I am so pleased to feature The SMILE Center as our Local Non Profit for the month of November!
The SMILE Center opened in 2011 and is located in downtown Evansville on 4th Street. It was designed to provide enrichment experiences for individuals with Down syndrome and other intellectual disabilities and their families. The name of this organization could not be more fitting…because you walk in the door of this facility and immediately Smile as you feel so much love in the room! The SMILE on Down Syndrome Mission Statement is: committed to provide a network of support services to meet the physical, emotional, spiritual, social and educational needs of people of all ages with Down syndrome, their families and communities. They provide creative and interactive play time for all ages from newborns to adults. Each year they celebrate Down Syndrome Awareness month in October by having a fundraiser called “The Smile Mile.” Funds are raised by corporate sponsorships and walkers’ pledges for the walk. Around 3,000 people participated in this year’s walk! It was such a special day filled with Smiles, Laughter and so much Love! They hold a variety of events throughout the year. Please keep updated on their Website and Facebook page!

Fidel’s Bourbon Bar was the setting of our October 12th event…. So many people dressed in 1920’s attire…feather boas, flapper girl dresses and gangster wear filled this Speakeasy which is set right above Walton’s restaurant in Haynie’s Corner. It was a perfect evening of socializing, sipping and shopping our fabulous vendors. If you have never visited Fidel’s, you need to check it out. The ambiance is unlike anything else in Evansville. You truly feel like you are in the Prohibition Era. Prizes were given out to the best costumes of the night and more door prizes than ever before! Below are our vendors from the event and their contact information!
