The Gawler and Light Rotaract Club took up an unique initiative on Monday night, raising over $1000 for Bowel Cancer Australia with a suicide wing challenge at the Golden Fleece Hotel.
The suicide wing challenge saw some of the spiciest wings the region has ever seen, with a special recipe put together by the chefs at the Gawlerbased hotel.
Five young men, Kyle Hutchinson, Matt Cartwright, Dan Clift, Branden Thompson and Thomas Hopgood put their stomachs, tongues and taste buds to the test all for charity, with Kyle downing a colossal 15 wings in half an hour.
A number of the challengers felt the burn in their fingers alone as they attempted to eat the smoking hot wings.
Samantha Mitchell at the Gawler and Light Rotaract Club was more than pleased, with her target of $700 smashed by a long shot, with people paying by per wing consumed, or chunks of donations into the Darth Maul money box.
