On April 17, Buffalo Wild Wings restaurants across the United States are inviting guests to participate in its annual Community Day fundraiser in support of the Buffalo Wild Wings Foundation, a newly-formed entity designed to support and accelerate investments in local communities. On Community Day, 10 percent of total sales, along with 100 percent of all guest donations, will directly benefit local youth sports.
“The Buffalo Wild Wings Foundation, which supports youth sports organizations including local Boys & Girls Clubs, will allow the brand to make an even larger impact in the communities it serves.
We invite guests to come in-restaurant and help us raise funds for youth sports across the country.” Lyle Tick, President, Buffalo Wild Wings
To promote Community Day, participating restaurants will host a variety of fun guest activities including raffles, auctions and wing-eating contests. As a part of Buffalo Wild Wings’ Team Up for Kids mission, a portion of the funds will go towards Boys & Girls Clubs of America ALL STARS program in support of sports teams and facility improvement projects at local Clubs. The Team Up for Kids program has led to more than 600,000 kids playing team sports.
“The number of kids and teens who have been able to become part of a team as part of our ongoing partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings is incredible.
By supporting our sports programs and facility improvements, the ALL STARS and Team Up for Kids grants are helping young people develop life-enhancing skills that inspire great futures and victories in adulthood.” Jim Clark, President and CEO, Boys & Girls Clubs of America
On Community Day 2018, Buffalo Wild Wings, and its guests, raised more than $920,000, the largest donation from this event since the annual fundraiser began. Buffalo Wild Wings has committed to raising at least $23 million for Boys & Girls Clubs of America by 2020.
