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!
