A delicious way to help: BW3s will donate part of your bill to tornado relief

If you need an excuse to go out to eat, it doesn’t get better than this. Nine Buffalo Wild Wings locations across Dayton will donate 10 percent of your bill Wednesday to tornado relief.

Jessica Fields, a bartender for BW3’s, was inspired to organize the fundraiser, Wings of Relief, after listening to victims share their stories at the Englewood restaurant where she works. One woman in particular who lost her entire house made an impact on her, she said.

“She kept apologizing to me for sitting at the bar all night. I told her I’m here until midnight and you can sit here with me. She just wanted someone to talk to and someone to listen,” Fields said. “I feel like a lot of times people don’t realize that even just giving a kind word to someone can impact their day. I just wanted to help.”

With assistance from store and district managers, Fields has arranged for all nine restaurants in the Miami Valley to participate Wednesday, June 12. The proceeds (excluding alcohol and gratuity) will be given to the Vineyard Church Tornado Relief Fund in Beavercreek to distribute in the community.

“My grandma always said kindness is free,” Fields said. “If listening to that woman made her day better, that’s enough for me, but I want everyone to know that it can be as simple as going into BW3s and eating chicken wings to make a difference for people.”
