C.J. part of Fuel up to Play 60 event

Posted by Hannah Buehler on December 13, 2013 – 3:29 pm

On Tuesday, December 10th 250 student ambassadors from Buffalo and Rochester area school districts made their presence known at Ralph Wilson Stadium when they attended the American Dairy Association and Dairy Council’s “Be the Change” Day, a grass-roots movement created by local dairy farmers to reward school districts that are implementing in-school breakfast programs and the students that are leading the way for healthy changes in their schools.

“We’re celebrating the success and wellness of students from the Rochester and Buffalo areas at a time when inspiration is often needed the most,” said Kate Grosso, American Dairy Association and Dairy Council, Inc.  “The holiday months can be viewed by youth as a time to relieve themselves of their responsibilities and the healthy habits that they carry out throughout the regular school year. ‘Be the Change’ puts an emphasis on the belief that being healthy is something that we are all responsible for 365 days a year.”

Students arrived in true Fuel Up to Play 60 fashion with a red carpet entrance and also donned the number 9 on their backs to represent the nutrients that they get when fueling up with locally produced dairy products. “As a local dairy farmer, I am proud to produce a nutrient-rich product for children and their families and to play an active role in their overall healthy lifestyle,” said Roger White, dairy farmer, Gasport View Dairy Farm in Gasport, New York.

Students learned the importance of eating healthy and staying active from former NFL player and current Assistant Director of Recreation in Rochester, Tony Jordan. In addition, Bills running back CJ Spiller spoke with the students about his own healthy eating and exercise routine, as well as participated in passing drills with the kids in the Bills Healthy Zone Fieldhouse.

Today, Barton and Bills center Eric Wood visited students at McKinley High School in Buffalo who were on his bus that day.

Darnell shared with the students how his life changed that day, and he talked about leadership and bullying.

We thank Darnell for continuing to inspire Western New York.

Mario makes special donation

Posted by Hannah Buehler on December 4, 2013 – 9:36 am

With some brand-new Xbox One gaming systems in tow, and looking to make a positive impact in the community, Bills DE Mario Williams got creative at the start of the Holiday season. Williams took to social media, asking fans to submit their plea for the new system.

After surveying the responses, Williams settled on a recipient with a distinct Bills tie – the Phil Hansen room in Buffalo’s Ronald McDonald House.

The House provides a place for families with hospitalized children to stay during medical treatment, and the Bills-themed Hansen room bears the name of former DE Phil Hansen, who funded the space with a $10,000 donation.

Mario enjoyed visiting the Ronald McDonald house and learning more about the services they provide.

 

Keep up with all of the great work the Bills do for the Western New York Community at http://www.buffalobills.com/community/.

Business Attire – Best Dressed

Posted by Hannah Buehler on November 15, 2013 – 11:51 am

When our Bills travel, they are required to “suit up” and look the part. Each player has his own style that reflects his personality. Since everyone is dressed to impress, it’s hard for us to pick the best dressed.

Here are a few of my favorites!

best-dressed-aaron

Aaron’s rocking the shades to compliment his suit and tie.

best-dressed-kiko

Kiko’s looking fresh with his purple tie. Tip: add a pop of color to your suit combo.

best-dressed-graggl

Chris Gragg is sporting the bow tie. Break away from traditional once and a while.

best-dressed-fred

Print mixing works! We love Fred’s paisley tie, and ability to pair the paisley and stripes.

Napolis can help you look your best for all important occasions in your life.

Napoli’s, the official men’s shop of the Buffalo Bills, is a ten-minute drive from the Buffalo/Niagara International Airport.  Stop by and pick-up your gift cards for the holidays and take a look at brands such as Canali, Hugo Boss, Zanella, Hickey Freeman, Bugatchi Uomo, Tommy Bahama and many more. With shoes by brands like To Boot New York, Donald J. Pliner, Allen Edmonds, Santoni, Bruno Magli, and others.
