The Village of Buffalo Grove is pleased to announce a public-private partnership with Woodman’s Food Markets, Inc. to sponsor several events during Buffalo Grove Days.

"Woodman's is proud to be part of the Buffalo Grove community, and happy to sponsor this great community event. We look forward to a long relationship with Buffalo Grove, and to providing our great everyday low prices and tremendous selection for years to come," said Woodman’s Food Markets President Clint Woodman.

Woodman’s will be the presenting sponsor of the main stage entertainment on Saturday, September 1st, featuring Southern California rock band Eve6, the presenting sponsor of nonprofit beverage and food sales, and the sponsor of the parade held on Sunday, September 2nd.

“We are so grateful for the generous support that Woodman’s is providing for our community’s largest event of the year, BG Days,” said Village President Beverly Sussman. “We look forward to the future success at their new location, and as a valued community partner in Buffalo Grove.”

Woodman’s will donate all beverages and corn that local nonprofits sell during Buffalo Grove Days to help raise money for their organizations.

“This is a great opportunity for nonprofits to raise money while serving their community,” said President Sussman.

Previously, nonprofits had to secure their own product. Through the partnership with Woodman’s, nonprofit organizations will no longer have to procure or manage inventory, pay entry or booth fees, or compete with other organizations for sales. In addition, Buffalo Grove Days will now offer fundraising opportunities to more nonprofit and charitable organizations in the community. By covering shifts in the corn and beverage sales booth, organizations will earn credits toward a portion of the proceeds for their volunteer time. Non-profit or charitable organizations serving Buffalo Grove that are interested in signing up to work the beverage booth and raising money for their organization should contact Mike Reynolds, Buffalo Grove Days Liaison, at mreynolds@vbg.org to apply. Applications are due July 20, 2018.

BG Days is a 5-day festival that includes a carnival, parade, car show, live entertainment, an arts and crafts fair and business fair, events for residents with disabilities and more. It will be held from Thursday, August 30 through Labor Day, Monday, September 3, 2018.
