Buffalo Wild Wings® and Team Up for Kids®

Palm Beach County, FL – Buffalo Wild Wings is proud to partner with Boys & Girls Club of America (BGCA) to help more kids play team sports. On Wednesday, April 13, Buffalo Wild Wings will be celebrating their third-annual Community Day. The purpose of Community Day is to help kids in every Buffalo Wild Wings community. Donations will go directly to a Boys & Girls Club elected by each restaurant.

All company-owned restaurants will donate 10% of their total sales (Dine-In or Take-Out) on April 13th to their local Boys & Girls Club organization. In addition, patrons that day can add a donation on their bill and 100% of that donation will go to the Boys & Girls Clubs. Restaurants will plan activities and events for the children dining at the restaurant on that day. “This is going to be a fun FAMILY night with pony rides, raffles, and so much more. We also are having an Art competition for the Wellington Club kids and their work will be in display at the restaurant on April 13th. Guest will vote on their favorite artwork and a winner will be selected on April 13,” said Cisco Castro, General Manager of Buffalo Wild Wings in Wellington. “This is an exciting event for us and we love to be able to partner with an organization such as the Boys & Girls Club of Wellington.”

Last year more than 750 restaurants across the country participated and Buffalo Wild Wings raised and donated over $541,000 to the Boys & Girls Clubs as a result of Community Day.

By 2017, Buffalo Wild Wings will help more than 100,000 kids belong to a team by donating and raising at least $6 million for Boys and Girls Clubs of America. Buffalo Wild Wings’ Guests can join their mission through donations from the purchase of sauce and seasoning bottles year round, and fundraising events in restaurants across the country.

Kids and teens experience the joy of belonging to a team while learning sportsmanship, teamwork and social skills.Buffalo Wild Wings of Wellington is located at 2837 South State Road 7, Wellington, FL 33414.
