FLORENCE, AL (WAFF) -

The Florence location of Buffalo Wild Wings is giving a young woman the money she was expecting from a fundraiser, after her friends and family raised concerns that the restaurant wasn't holding up its end of the deal.

The woman held a fundraiser at the Florence restaurant, trying to raise money for a mission trip. Viewers contacted us, saying the restaurant refused to give her the money that her friends and family donated at the restaurant.

According to the woman's mother in a post on Facebook, a manager told her daughter she had to be present at the time of the fundraiser to receive the money. The young woman reportedly had to work at the time of the fundraiser, so she wasn't able to attend the entire event.

The operations partner for the Buffalo Wild Wings franchise in Florence said they do fundraising for several groups, and they have for years.

He said it was a miscommunication, and he isn't sure how it happened.

The partner said they spoke to the young lady on Friday, and apologies were made. The restaurant is sending her a check for $280 to make things right.
