Comedian Mike Hammer will welcome his friends, “Tanked” stars Wayde King, Heather King and Agnes Wilczynski to the 3rd Annual Mike Hammer Celebrity Go-Kart Race, a charity event benefitting the Wounded Warrior Project and three veterans’ charities in Las Vegas, on October 22 with a Celebrity Red Carpet from 12 noon and Celebrity Go-Kart Racing from 1-3pm at Gene Woods Racing Experience in Las Vegas.
“Tanked” star Wayde King
Wayde King’s love of fish began at an early age. Born and raised in Long Island, New York, Wayde has early memories of his mother and biological father, who was a fish dealer, and the multiple tanks they had in the basement of his home.
Today, Wayde is living his dream designing and manufacturing some of the largest and most extravagant acrylic tanks in the world. But this isn’t just a business, it’s a family adventure.
By Wayde’s side are his wife, his brother-in-law and chief operating officer, Brett, and his father-in-law. Working with family has been very challenging, but Wayde is happy to share the stress and success with the people he loves the most.
“Tanked” star Agnes Wilczynski
The fish business is a booming one, and Agnes Wilczynski knows how to bait a hook. Agnes has a background in hair design and ironically was working in sales at a local Ferrari dealership when she met Wayde.
Her original goal was to sell him a Porsche, but Wayde’s passion for his work inspired Agnes so much she sold him the Porsche and became a member of the ATM team.
Agnes is responsible day-to-day for handling incoming calls and coordinating with designers to estimate job costs and create quotes so that ATM can bid on jobs. Wayde and Brett consider her a kid sister, but her role coordinating some of their biggest projects is no small matter.
“Tanked” star Heather King
It would be great if all Heather King had to handle at ATM was the books. But working alongside her father, brother and husband in one office every day is a little more than an average day job; it’s clearly a labor of love.
Heather is the absolute love of Wayde’s life and handles all the accounting at ATM. Seeing Wayde in his glory doing what he is most passionate about makes the struggles of mixing business with pleasure well worth it. Heather knew a lot about accounting when she started, having run her father’s machinery business for a few years, but she was in the deep end when it came to fish.
Luckily she has watched ATM grow and expand since the doors opened more than 14 years ago and has picked up much of Wayde’s expertise. Heather loves to dance and spends much of her free time with their two daughters, Taylor and Morgan, who are both competitive and award-winning gymnasts. She hopes ATM will one day become a legacy for their two daughters to continue to enjoy and expand.
“Tanked” Stars Wayde King, Heather King and Agnes Wilczynski and dozens of other celebrities and VIPs will attend this event to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and Las Vegas-based veterans’ organizations R.W.B. Dog Tags, Forgotten Not Gone and The Nathan Tyler Davis Foundation.
