We Can Help Change the Game

The Salvation Army Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte has received a $2,000 grant from Buffalo Wild Wings® through its Team Up for Kids® mission to form three sports leagues for Club youth: football, basketball and cheer/dance.

“The ALL STARS program motivates kids and teens to lead a healthy lifestyle through team sports,” said Marty Clary, executive director for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Charlotte. “Early education and active programming is essential for today’s youth, and these teams will help our Club members develop strong sportsmanship and greater self-esteem along the way.”

Created by Boys & Girls Clubs of America (BGCA) and national partner Buffalo Wild Wings, the ALL STARS program is dedicated to helping build a healthier future generation. Currently 1 in 3 youth is obese in the United States, and team sports offer a fun and rewarding way for kids and teens to develop more active lifestyles.

“We believe there is a champion in all youth,” said Bobby Banzoff, district manager for Buffalo Wild Wings for the Charlotte area. “We are excited to team up with the Charlotte Boys & Girls Clubs to create an environment where kids and teens can thrive, compete and belong to a team.”

Buffalo Wild Wings has helped tens of thousands of kids and teens play team sports at Boys & Girls Clubs around the country. Guests of Buffalo Wild Wings help support Buffalo Wild Wings’ commitment through donations from sauce and seasoning bottle purchases and in-restaurant fundraising events including a nation-wide promotion during the month of October when Guests can get a limited-edition wristband with a minimum donation of $5 or a pinup with a minimum donation of $1. All money raised during the month goes to support BGCA and the ALL STARS program at Clubs nationwide.
