'Secret Millionaire' Tailgates on Causeway
SPANISH FORT, Ala. (WPMI) A 'Secret Millionaire' returned to the Mobile area Saturday to make a public gesture to help local non-profit organizations.
Wing Lam, founder of Wahoos Fish Tacos, was featured in the September 2013 episode of the ABC show which airs on WEAR-TV, Local 15's sister station.
On the broadcast, Lam posed as a volunteer being portrayed on a documentary about volunteering. Lam visited with residents and officials with 15 Place homeless shelter and Tri-Coastal community outreach.
After hearing the stories of people recovering from the BP Oil disaster, Lam revealed his identity and handed out more than $150,000 in donations to the groups and individuals. He also bought one man a new truck to help him get to and from work.
Saturday, Lam and his wife Kelly helped run a tailgating event featuring some of his famous fish tacos to raise additional funds for the groups to aid in their efforts to continue helping the Mobile-area communities.
"It's all about the community and there's so many people who are less fortunate than we are, so we're here lending everybody a little bit of help so they can make the ends meet," Lam said.
