The Buffalo Wild Wings at The Crossings shopping district in Spring Hill will be holding a community day Wednesday in partnership with the Spring Hill Police Department featuring plenty of games and activities, emergency vehicles on site, and a live DJ, all benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of Maury County.
The event will see multiple Spring Hill Police patrol cars, a Spring Hill Fire Department firetruck, and even an ambulance parked outside for kids to see up close and personal. Also at the event will be plenty of games and activities, such as face painting, cornhole, water pong, balloons, and even a live DJ to complete the party atmosphere.
“That’s what we’re passionate about – sports of course, because we’re a sports bar, but being able to give back to the community that we’re a part of is huge for me,” said Buffalo Wild Wings General Manager Riley Osborne. “That’s the biggest reason that I work for Buffalo Wild Wings, because I have the ability to influence lives in the community that we just happen to be in.”
Regarding the fundraising aspect of the event, 10 percent of all sales Wednesday will go towards supporting the Boys & Girls Club of Maury County. Funds raised will help the club with expenses related to travel, equipment and coaches.
The event will also see Buffalo Wild Wings auction things like T-shirts and sauce bottles, of which all proceeds would go towards the Boys & Girls Club.
“It’s not often we can all get around something positive,” Osborne said. “Anytime there’s something negative, the community always comes together, but anytime I can aid in getting rallied around something positive, that’s something I’m super passionate about.”
The event will last all day Wednesday, from 11 a.m. – 11 p.m., and is free to attend. The Buffalo Wild Wings at The Crossings is located at 1018 Crossings Boulevard in Spring Hill.
