Buffalo Wild Wings kicked off its annual fundraiser today to support the development and growth of ALL STARS organized sports programs at Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide.

This important funding will enable more than 1,200 Clubs this year to receive uniforms, equipment, training and new coaching technologies. Clubs will also receive special recognition for players of the week, girl players and female coaches.

The promotion, which runs through October 31, is part of Buffalo Wild Wings Team Up for Kids mission.

Paper pinups will be posted throughout Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants with a $1 minimum guest donation. Guests will receive a special limited-edition Buffalo Wild Wings PopSocket with a donation of $5 or more.

“Together with our guests and franchisees, Buffalo Wild Wings has raised more than $17 million and helped thousands of kids experience the joy of playing on an ALL STARS team since 2013.

 

We’re excited to continue our fundraising efforts this year allowing more kids the opportunity to play team sports in our local communities.” Lyle Tick, President, Buffalo Wild Wings

Throughout the month of October, Buffalo Wings will also donate 10% of the purchase value of each limited-time Team Up for Kids eGift Card, providing additional funding to the Boys & Girls Clubs ALL STARS program. Visit the online gift card store at BuffaloWildWings.com to purchase.

In 2017, Buffalo Wild Wings enabled more than 170,000 Club youth to participate on high-quality ALL STARS sports teams which they otherwise could not afford. Buffalo Wild Wings has also committed to raising and donating at least $2 million per year through 2020.

“Our partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings has helped bring the love of the game to thousands of kids and teens across the country.

 

This support provides an opportunity to build self-confidence and life-enhancing skills that will help them succeed on and off the field.” Jim Clark, President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America
