Buffalo Wild Wings Hosts Annual Fundraiser to Help Kids and Teens Play Team Sports with Boys & Girls Clubs of America

Throughout October, pinups and PopSockets purchased in-restaurant will support grants for local Clubs to help kids participate in team sports

ATLANTA (Oct. 3, 2018)— Buffalo Wild Wings® today announced the kickoff of their annual fundraiser to support youth sports programs at Boys & Girls Clubs across the country.

The company is supporting more than 600 teams and leagues across the country this fall, creating sports programs that promote physical fitness, good sportsmanship, and teamwork. In total, Buffalo Wild Wings has committed to donating at least $2 million each year to Boys & Girls Clubs of America through 2020.

"This support provides an opportunity to build self-confidence and life-enhancing skills that will help them succeed on and off the field."

**Due to Thanksgiving, we are meeting a week earlier than normal. This is our last meeting of 2018 and we will be stuffing purses!

Join us for lunch, discussion of current and relevant issues related to women in business along with fantastic networking.

We are kicking it into full gear collecting items and purses for the Solid Ground Purse Drive. We've got 20 purses so far, but need more to get to 40! Remember - we're looking for larger MOM SIZE bags, as each of the women at Solid Ground have 1 - 3 children.

We're also looking for items to put in the bags, so if your company has something to donate, I'll gladly accept. I've also found some great deals when shopping the clearance aisle.   

For those of you who don't know, the Women in Business group provides the women at Solid Ground with a new purse filled with goodies each year for their Christmas program. We collect all the items and will have a special luncheon on November 15th to stuff and present them.

If you haven't been to a Women in Business lunch - please join us. The only cost is for your lunch.
