The Minnesota Vikings played their last regular season game ever at TCF Bank Stadium on Sunday night and it was a resounding success as they dismantled the New York Giants 49-17 in front of a packed stadium and a national television audience.
The win improved the Vikings to 10-5 on the season and clinched a spot in the 2016 playoffs, and they’ll play the Green Bay Packers next Sunday night with the NFC North Division title on the line.
Kicker Blair Walsh was one of the stars for the Vikings as he nailed all five of his field goal attempts, including two from beyond 50 yards. That’s great news for Innovative Office Solutions and the InSports Foundation , who partner with the Vikings and Post-It Brand to present the Field Goals for Charity Program.During the NFL regular season, each time Walsh successfully kicked a field goal, InSports, Innovative’s charitable arm and Post-It Brand donated $250 (up to $5,000 total) to Team Up for Kids, a Buffalo Wild Wings’ charity. Team Up for Kids is a foundation that is committed to helping build communities where all kids can thrive, compete and belong to a team.
Buffalo Wild Wings (a customer of Innovative Office Solutions) has a passion for sports and they believe that there is a champion inside of every child.
From Buffalo Wild Wings’ Team Up for Kids page: Playing sports is about igniting a passion, belonging to a team, sportsmanship, teamwork and building self-esteem through great play. We believe every child should have the chance to experience team sports and learn the life lessons and skills that will help them thrive and compete in life. That’s why we’re committed to helping all kids have the opportunity to play on a team.Our commitment to helping make our communities a better place to live, work and grow is a part of who we are. Since our first restaurants opened, Buffalo Wild Wings, our franchises and our guests have given millions of dollars to support local community and school organizations, teams and those in need.
Buffalo Wild Wings is teaming up with Boys & Girls Club of America to help more kids play team sports. By 2017 we are donating more than $6 million to BGCA, including corporate donations, donations from sauce and seasoning bottle sales and fund-raising events in our restaurants around the country.
It’s initiatives and ideals like that that make Innovative Office Solutions proud to partner up with and to continue our mission to constantly give back to and help the community around us.
Blair Walsh’s big night on Sunday capped off another hugely successful season for the Vikings kicker, as he’s made 32 of 37 field goal attempts on the year. His 32 field goals on the season ties him with New England Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski for the most in the NFL!
Innovative Office Solutions and InSports would like to thank their partners, Post-It, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Team Up for Kids, for another smashing success of a season of Field Goals for Charity.
