The Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation presented a check for $7,500 to the Seneca Diabetes Foundation at the fifth annual Seneca Diabetes Foundation Chairman's Ball which was held at the Seneca Niagara Events Center in Niagara Falls in early February.
Former Bills wide receiver and current Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation treasurer Charley Ferguson made the presentation to Barry E. Snyder, Jr., Seneca Nation of Indians president/Seneca Diabetes Foundation chairman and JC Seneca, Seneca Diabetes Foundation board member.
"This is the seventh year that the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation has presented a check to the Seneca Diabetes Foundation," said Ferguson. "The Bills Alumni fully supports all the efforts being made by the Seneca Diabetes Foundation in their efforts to educate about this disease and supporting research in helping to find a cure."
Even with the difficult economic climate that everyone has dealt with during the past year, the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation continued their giving ways and donated monies to over eighteen different charitable organizations in the Western New York community. The Bills Alumni Foundation has given over one million dollars to various charitable organizations throughout Western New York.
The Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation was founded in 1999 and is comprised of past Bills players that have left an imprint on society during their football careers and want to continue molding society in a positive manner.
