Recently, the Buffalo Bills hosted their annual Toyota Rookie Club Bills Party for Children. Members from several local organizations were invited, including a handful of children from Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County (New York). In total, nearly 100 children were in attendance.
The event, held at the Jim Kelly Club at Ralph Wilson Stadium where the Bills play, provided a number of Bills players with the opportunity to celebrate the holiday season with young children from around the area, while also signing a few autographs and pictures, too. The club was fully decked out in holiday decorations.
Two boys from Big Brothers Big Sisters, Jahan and Jaylen, are waiting to be matched with Bigs. While everyone was enjoying their time, several players, including EJ Manuel, CJ Spiller and a handful of others, interacted with the children and talked about the importance of school and a proper education.
The holiday party, like all parties, eventually had to come to an end. But not before the Bills players each dressed like Santa and passed out presents to all of the children in attendance.
