ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

An Albany restaurant is giving back to a youth development organization.
    

Buffalo Wild Wings held a Community Day for the Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany.
10% of Wednesday night’s proceeds will go toward providing youth services.

"I like the community focus that we have in the area and the connectedness with the clubs is really nice for us so, we try to push for that and help out the community as much as possible,” said Jeremy Dykes, Buffalo Wild Wings General Manager.

"It shows their true commitment not only to young people but to this community to ensure that a great future is within reach for all young people here in Albany/Dougherty County,” said Marvin Laster, Boys & Girls Clubs of Albany CEO.

Customers could also donate $20 and get a t-shirt for the “No K Fun Run” which is the restaurant's spin-off of a 5-K run.
