Buffalo Wild Wings Gives Back to Brigade

Exciting things are happening at the Buffalo Wild Wings on Old Eastwood Road in Wilmington, as the restaurant location upgrades their space for 2017. On the remodel list includes new furniture, fresh décor and additional televisions for their sports fans. With the sudden excess in these items, Buffalo Wild Wings has decided to spread the joy of a makeover by donating their current furniture, and select televisions and sports paraphernalia to the Brigade Boys & Girls Club.

“I can’t tell you how much this means to all of us at Brigade.” said Cindy Anzalotti, Director of Development and Communications at Brigade. “Buffalo Wild Wings is an outstanding community partner, and has continued to support Our Kids in many different efforts. Our members will now have more comfortable, sturdy and reliable tables and chairs to use for work and play. With an average daily attendance of 250 youth and teens at our Vance Street sites, our belongings can take a real beating, so these items are truly a blessing.”

“The Brigade Boys & Girls Club gives kids in our community hope,” said Buffalo Wild Wings owner, Larry Alderson. “After learning more about the programs they are offering and seeing firsthand the needs they have at their facility, we knew we wanted to be a part of it. We are happy to help them provide for these kids.”

Thank you so much, Buffalo Wild Wings, for loving Our Kids!

Help Us Congratulate our 2017 Youth of the Year

Join us in congratulating Brigade’s 2017 Youth of the Year, Josh Bell! Josh is a senior at Hoggard High School, and has been a Brigade member since 2007. He is well known around the Club as being an amazing, driven, polite, and brilliant, young man, and he fully believes that you should “always put forth your best effort.”

“I began attending Brigade in the third grade, when I was eight years old,” Josh explained. “The years since have been the greatest of my life because Brigade has been by my side every step of the way. This organization has done so much for me and so many others. It provides our community’s youth with a safe haven to come to and be part of as one big happy family. Brigade has always encouraged me to be the best I can be and to never give up in life. I am truly blessed to have Brigade in my life.”

We also want to recognize and thank our other Youth of the Year nominees, Shavone and LJ, as the exemplary members, students, and people that they are. We at Brigade are so proud of these teens’ accomplishments, and we even more excited for their “Great Futures.”

Congratulations, Josh! Good luck at the North Carolina YOY competition on March 31 and April 1 in Durham!
