Buffalo Wild Wings hosts 'Chief for a Day' fundraiser March 19

LAKEWOOD — Buffalo Wild Wings at 17020 Twin Lakes Ave. in Marysville is donating 10 percent of all its pre-tax food sales from 4-10 p.m. on Wednesday, March 19, to the Arlington Police Department's "Chief for a Day" fundraiser. This event will include a raffle from 5:30-8 p.m.

"Chief for a Day" gives children who have been diagnosed with life-threatening or chronic medical conditions a special day of their own, during which they can don hand-tailored uniforms from the law enforcement agencies who have sworn them in as "Chiefs." This event takes place every two years, and this year's event is set for Aug. 21 at the Criminal Justice Training Center in Burien, with more than 30 law enforcement agencies from around the state sponsoring their own "Chiefs."

The Arlington Police Department's "Chief" is Siena Leighton, who has Type 1 juvenile diabetes and wants to promote greater awareness of this disease. She will be featured as the Arlington Police "Chief" during the city's Fourth of July festivities as well.

Buffalo Wild Wings will host further "Chief for a Day" fundraisers on April 9, May 14 and June 11.
