April 22, 2008 - PRLog -- DESTIN, Fla.  – Ortie Messenger, owner/operator of the Wingstop Destin, announced today the raffling of a Troy-Aikman signed football to benefit Destin Harvest.

Tickets are $1 each, six for $5, or 25 for $20 and are on sale now through June 1. The drawing will be held at the Wingstop, located in the Destin Super Walmart Shopping Center, on June 2nd.

“We appreciate this campaign to raise money to feed the hungry,” said Kim Moore, executive director of Destin Harvest. “Every dollar raised helps us deliver meals free of charge to the less fortunate in our area.  Every ticket sold will be stretched to meet our and Wingstop’s goal of stopping hunger in our community.”

Ortie recently opened the Wingstop with his wife Irene. They moved from Dallas to their favorite vacation spot to introduce Wingstop to the area.

“There are so many football fans who love to collect memorabilia that may some day be more valuable, so we’re glad we can offer something from our national spokesman who is a hall-of-famer,” said Ortie.
