Excerpt: " 'We are excited to partner with Boys & Girls Clubs of America on the pinup promotion and All Stars grant program to achieve our vision of helping build communities where all kids can thrive, compete and belong to a team,' said Mary Twinem, chief financial officer at Buffalo Wild Wings. 'Team sports help teach valuable life lessons and keep kids engaged with their local Clubs. The pinup promotion allows our Guests to join our efforts to reach as many children as possible and provide much needed funding.'

The goal is to raise more than $1 million by Sept. 1. Guests can buy a pinup (minimum $1) at their local Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant beginning Aug. 5. Guests can also donate at www.buffalowildwings.com/giving and BGCA online.

Buffalo Wild Wings has committed a minimum of $650,000 to Boys & Girls Clubs of America in 2013. The proceeds from the sale of pinups will be used to fund more sports teams. 'The All Stars grant partnership and pinup sales with Buffalo Wild Wings are excellent ways for us to reach our goal of helping as many children as possible to become part of a team and build confidence and social skills,' said Wayne B. Moss, senior director of Healthy Lifestyles, Boys & Girls Clubs of America. 'Both of these programs offer tremendous support for Clubs to help facilitate sports programs that impact our youth with organized physical activity, lessons on sportsmanship and building teamwork skills that last a lifetime.'
