On April 22, the Watchung and Linden Buffalo Wild Wings® restaurants will team up with their communities for their 2015 Community Day, an annual celebration that raises funds for local kids as part of the Buffalo Wild Wings Team Up for Kids mission. Ten percent of total restaurant sales and 100 percent of Guest donations on April 22 will be donated to Boys & Girls Clubs of Union County to support the organization’s youth programs.
Now in its third year, Buffalo Wild Wings’ Team Up for Kids mission and partnership with BGCA supports youth sports through ALL STARS grants for flag or tackle football and cheer teams at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country. Buffalo Wild Wings is excited to expand this effort to include basketball teams beginning in 2015.
“Through Community Day, we can support local Clubs in hundreds of communities where we do business. Our goal is to bring youth sports into the lives of every child who wants to play,” said Mary Twinem, executive vice president and chief financial officer at Buffalo Wild Wings. “From the many creative ways that our local restaurants celebrated Community Day last year, to the critical funds that were raised to sustain and build on our efforts to support Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) through our partnership, we are excited to bring our restaurants and Guests together for a renewed effort this April.”
“We are excited to partner with Buffalo Wild Wings again for Community Day," Russell Triolo, CEO, proudly stated. “This is a wonderful way to support our Clubs and enjoy a family meal. Thank you to Buffalo Wild Wings of Watchung and Linden.”
Watchung Buffalo Wild Wings of Linden is located at: 1599 Route 22 West (by BJ’s) Watchung, NJ; Linden Buffalo Wild Wings is located at: 1701 West Edgar Road, Linden, NJ.
