A Coral Springs Charter High School Senior is hoping to raise at least $1,100 for Parkland Buddy Sports.

Last year, Kaitlyn Burst participated in a partner giving project and donated $1,000 to St. Jude. Now, she and her partner Samantha Reilly have decided to focus their efforts on Parkland Buddy Sports by holding a similar dinner night at Wings Plus in Coral Springs.

On January 11, from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m., Wings Plus at 9880 West Sample Road will donate 15 percent of all dine-in and pick-up orders to the nonprofit.

Since 2002, Parkland Buddy Sports has organized year-round quality sports programs and events for children with special needs, starting at age four and volunteering opportunities for students living in South Florida.

As a student volunteer for Parkland Buddy Sports, Burst became involved with the organization through the National Honor Society at her school and has planned karaoke events for the non-profit.

“Due to Covid-19, we understand the struggle some families might have with attending the dinner night, so we have a donation page where you can support them from the comfort of your home,” she said.
