The Bills Alumni Association has put together one heck of an event that fans will want to attend.

The Bills Alumni will be bringing the hallowed halls of Canton to Western New York as they salute the Legends of the NFL at the 2010 edition of their Annual Weekend of Events from Sept. 11-13.

In addition to numerous Buffalo Bills alumni, sixteen members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame will be honored and recognized at the three-day alumni weekend.

On Sat., Sept. 11, the Bills Alumni will host a ‘Legends of the NFL’ VIP Gala at the Seneca Niagara Events Center in Niagara Falls, NY. On Sun., Sept. 12, the Legends of the NFL VIP Tailgate Party will take place at Ralph Wilson Stadium followed by the Bills vs. Miami home opener.  The finale on Mon., Sept. 13 is the Annual Celebrity Charity Golf Classic which will be held at the new Robert Trent Jones, II designed, $25 million Seneca Hickory Stick Golf Club in Lewiston, NY.

“This is going to be one of the most exciting weekend of events we have ever had”, said Booker Edgerson Bills, Alumni president.  “I don’t believe that Western New York has ever seen sixteen Pro Football Hall of Famers at one event.  It will be awesome.”

The Buffalo Bills Alumni Weekend of Events is the foundation’s marquee fundraiser as proceeds from monies raised from the weekend go directly to support numerous local charities.  The Bills Alumni Foundation has donated over one million dollars over the past several years.

This once in a lifetime opportunity to participate in this weekend and rub shoulders with these members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame is open to the general public.  For ticket information on all these days, including the golf tournament, contact JRC Promotions at 716-694-7867.  Sponsorship opportunities are also still available.
