Dining 5 (copy)

Teens from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County will job-shadow workers at  Buffalo Wild Wings Wednesday to drum up funds for the Clubs' sports programs.

Bakersfield, get ready to dine and donate again. Buffalo Wild Wings is hosting its Community Day on Wednesday, partnering with Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County to aid its sports programs

Ten percent of the Wednesday's sales and 100 percent of guest donations at the 5677 Gosford Road location will help provide needed resources (uniforms, game staff, equipment, travel, etc.) for Club sports.

From 4 to 5 p.m., a few of the teen Club members from the Boys & Girls Club Armstrong Youth Center will be on hand to job shadow workers — greeting customers, seating guests and helping wait on tables — to help drum up donations.

The chain teams with Boys & Girls Clubs across the country as part of its Team Up for Kids mission. Thanks to the aid of the local Buffalo Wild Wings, the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County has helped underwrite soccer leagues for Club members in grades first through sixth.

“The Buffalo Wild Wings ALL STARS program motivates kids to lead a healthy lifestyle through team sports while building good sportsmanship and self-esteem for Club members. We are so thankful for the local support,” said Zane Smith, executive director of the Boys & Girls Clubs of Kern County, in a news release.
