Buffalo Wild Wings Community Day 2016
April 25th, 2016
Buffalo Wild Wings (BWW) supports Boys & Girls Clubs in communities around the country. This year, Buffalo Wild Wings is donating as much as $40,000 in Team Up for Kids and ALL STARS grants to help more than 210 Clubs make significant improvements in their sports programs and facilities. These Clubs will be empowered to attract and serve even more members with fun and valuable sports experiences.
On April 13th, BWW hosted their Community Day at more than 750 restaurants and donated 10% of their total sales to local Boys & Girls Clubs. It was a great way for their Guests to join their efforts in making a positive impact in our communities, and BWW gave over $540,000 to Clubs across the country.
“Buffalo Wild Wings strives on being involved in the communities we are a part of," said Alyssa Groth, BWW Manager of Marketing. "We feel there is a champion in every child and each should be given the same opportunity to participate in Team sports.”
The local Grand Rapids BWW Community Day raised $4,567.93 for our Clubs. We are so grateful to have such amazing partnerships within our Grand Rapids community!
