The 21st Annual Wing Ding is a beloved Twin Cities summertime tradition for the whole family where local restaurants serve up their sweetest, spiciest, and simply best all-you-can-eat chicken wings.

It is said a picture is worth a thousand words. But for children living in shelters, one photograph can also represent a thousand dreams. In an effort to inspire these children to look toward a better future, Tubman is honored to announce our participation in the 2014 Pictures of Hope program in partnership with Chevrolet and photojournalist Linda Solomon.
Pictures of Hope travels across the country to present digital cameras to at-risk children who are living in shelters. The young photographers are given a photography tutorial and their first assignment: capture your “hopes and dreams” in photographs. The final products are made into holiday greeting cards and 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the shelters and facilities in each city thanks to the generosity of Chevrolet and it’s local dealers. Tubman’s very own photography tutorial with be held on August 26th, 2014.
