The Buffalo Wild Wings in downtown Chattanooga will have another “Eat Wings, Raise Funds” event on Thursday from 11 a.m. to midnight. Proceeds benefit Blood Assurance, the regional non-profit blood center. The Downtown Chattanooga restaurant is at 120 Market Street. 10 percent of receipt sales during the “Eat Wings, Raise Funds” event will be donated to Blood Assurance. When one dines in or carry out, they should let their server know or present an “Eat Wings, Raise Funds” ticket when they dine.
Blood Assurance is based in Chattanooga. Blood and blood components are supplied to 74 healthcare facilities in 51 counties in the area served by Blood Assurance. Over 540 volunteer blood donors are needed every day in order to adequately supply these hospitals. Other programs supported by Blood Assurance include: the Crystal Green Memorial Scholarship fund, the Excellence in Education high school grant program, and the Be the Match marrow registry.
