B-Dubs to host Watch Party & Fundraiser for Olympian's father
Buffalo Wild Wings is hosting an Olympic Watch Party and Fundraiser for Craig Scott on Feb. 11. The event will be at Buffalo Wild Wings, 900 E. Battlefield in Springfield. For additional information, please contact the E. Battlefield Location: (417) 881-9464.
Scott is the father of short track speedskating Olympian and SGF-native Emily Scott. Emily Scott is a 2007 Hillcrest High School graduate.
Money raised during the watch party will serve as additional funding for Craig Scott’s trip to watch his daughter at Sochi 2014. Extra funds which are raised will go to Emily to fulfill her dream of returning to the Olympics in 4 years.
The financial hardships of her Olympic training became national news when USA Today Sports published a story of her struggles. Through crowdfunding, Emily Scott has received enough in donations for this year’s Olympics.
