Buffalo Wild Wings Regional Owner Larry Alderson has joined the PGA Tour event’s Patriot Supporter Program as a way to say thank you to the men and women of our armed forces.

The tickets are available for retired and active service members and their familiar in the greater Wilmington area.

The Wells Fargo Championship is set to tee off May 1-7 at Eagle Point Golf Club in Wilmington.

The complimentary tickets will be distributed through the USO of North Carolina. If you are an active or retired service member and interested in attending the tournament, contact your local USO.

Alderson, who owns all Buffalo Wild Wings locations in Wilmington, Jacksonville and Myrtle Beach S.C., is also encouraging other local businesses to partner with the Patriot Supporter program to provide as many tickets as possible to service members.
