|Local restaurants to support their local Boys and Girls Clubs and youth sports by donating portion of sales on April 9 to Clubs in the greater Tampa area community
WHAT: Buffalo Wild Wings® and local Boys & Girls Clubs are teaming up to make an impact in the lives of our greater Tampa area kids. In honor of Boys & Girls Clubs’ Club Week, 10 Buffalo Wild Wings® locations will host a Community Day on April 9. Each location in the greater Tampa area will donate 10 percent of its total sales from that day to their local Club. As part of the Buffalo Wild Wings® Team Up for Kids™ initiative, the following locations will be participating: Tampa, Brandon, Riverview, Fish Hawk, Largo, Lakeland, Sarasota, University Parkway, North Port, and Fort Myers. This initiative helps bring sports into the lives of kids who need it most, helping them be part of a team and learn sportsmanship, teamwork, and leadership skills.
Guests can support their local Club by dining at the Ybor City, Brandon, Riverview, Fish Hawk, Largo, Lakeland, Sarasota, University Parkway, North Port, and Fort Myers Buffalo Wild Wings® locations on April 9, 2014. Local Boys and Girls Clubs representatives will be at all locations to accept additional donations during dinner.
On April 9, Buffalo Wild Wings® will also host Ricky Gallon from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. at their Riverview location, located at 10607 Big Bend Road, Riverview, FL 33579. Ricky Gallon, a Tampa native, grew up in the Bay area, attended Jefferson High School, and, in 1978, became the first basketball player from Tampa to be drafted into the NBA. His talent has seen him play for San Diego, Portland, Utah, and Milwaukee NBA teams, as well as for various international leagues in Europe. Currently, Gallon serves as Director of Community Relations for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Tampa Bay, an organization he has been involved with the majority of his life.
