Dearborn Special Olympics to Host Fundraiser
A percentage of purchases at Buffalo Wild Wings will go to support the organization on Jan. 30.
Supporting the Dearborn Special Olympics is as easy as ordering a basket of chicken wings on Monday, Jan. 30.
From 11 a.m.-midnight Monday, diners at the Dearborn Buffalo Wild Wings location can present a coupon to have 20 percent of their purchase go toward supporting the Dearborn Special Olympics group. Print the coupon directly from Dearborn Patch by clicking on the attached PDF.
Dearborn Special Olympics organizer and coach Joe Pellegrino, whose son also participates in the group, explained that funds raised go toward assisting in paying for uniforms, equipment and competition fees.
Though Dearborn has never sent any kids to national Special Olympics competitions, they have gone on to statewide games.
"One of our goals is to get some kids that can participate in winter games up in Traverse City," Pellegrino said.
The Buffalo Wild Wings fundraiser is held annually to support the group. Other fundraisers have been held at Biggby Coffee, as well as spaghetti dinners.
