Saturday, June 11, Keswick participated in the 11th King of the Wing Competition!
After a 2-year hiatus, this year’s event took place at Magens Bay, St. Thomas. Teams consisting of the top local restaurants, businesses, organizations and chicken wing connoisseurs set up their grills and cooking stations right on the beach to compete for the title of “King”. Entertainment included special guest, Grammy Award-winning rapper, actor and record producer Method Man from the ‘Wu-Tang Clan’.
The Keswick Insurance staff entered a special wing they named “Purple Rain” after the purple sweet potato ranch dipping sauce it was served with! The judges panel this year was made up of Michelin-Star winning chef Simon Kim of Cote Korean Steakhouse (with locations in NYC and Miami) and the 2022 NCAA Women’s Basketball Most Outstanding Player (and Virgin Islands native) Aliyah Boston.
While Keswick did not ultimately take home the crown, they were proud to contribute to supporting a great cause. All proceeds from this year’s event are being donated to the Virgin Islands Children’s Museum (VICM), a 501(c)3 recognized organization. VICM provides the Virgin Islands community with unique and meaningful experiences through fun, high-quality exhibits and programs. Located on St. Thomas, the museum’s mission is to bring children and families together in an interactive educational space where dynamic play inspires a passion for learning.
