It surely feels like fall at Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver (BGCMD) now that our sports teams are back in full swing. As our Club members step onto the playing field, we could not be more thankful for the support that Buffalo Wild Wings, our Corporate Partner of the Month, has provided to our athletic programs.
Buffalo Wild Wings believes there is a champion in every child, and is committed to helping build communities where all kids can thrive, compete, and belong to a team. For many years, Buffalo Wild Wings’ support has enabled us to deeply impact our youth by promoting a positive self-image, encouraging healthy and active lifestyles, and building strong characters. The national Buffalo Wild Wings “Team up for Kids Initiative” provides funding to Boys & Girls Clubs which provides jerseys, equipment, and coaches. Last year, part of this funding helped us create a new turf field at our Suncor Boys & Girls Club and also provided all of our Clubs with brand new basketball uniforms!
Our partnership with Buffalo Wild Wings does not stop there. Local Buffalo Wild Wings support Boys & Girls Clubs through spring and fall restaurant fundraising events, as well as donations from hot sauce and bottle purchases. Our Club members love joining in on the fun festivities during these events and have established close relationships with their local restaurants over the years. Our Buffalo Wild Wings partners are always the first to raise their hands to donate food to our Clubs for events and many of the managers have volunteered in the Clubs. To top it all off, the local Buffalo Wild Wings locations have even decided to host a golf tournament to support BGCMD this month!
Boys & Girls Clubs of Metro Denver could not be more humbled by all of the efforts made by Buffalo Wild Wings to support the development and growth of our sports teams and our Clubs. We are truly grateful for their partnership and proud to honor Buffalo Wild Wings as our Corporate Partner of the Month!
