The contest runs until August 25 and only 11 fans who make the cut will win two tickets to the 2009 Bills home opener on Sunday, September 20 versus Tampa Bay, a 50th Season Bills jersey and recognition on field as The Ultimate Bills Fan Team!
"Perry's Ice Cream is a signature brand of the Western New York community and we are excited to partner with them during the Bills historical 50th Season," said Bruce Popko, Buffalo Bills senior vice president of Business Development. "We look forward to creating fun and exciting opportunities for fans of Perry's Ice Cream and the Buffalo Bills."
One Ultimate Bills Fan Team Member who outshines the rest will be named The Ultimate Bills Fan and will receive: a year supply of Perry's ice cream, a pair of 2009 Bill's Season Tickets in the lower level sidelines and an invitation for four to Jim Kelly's private tailgate party at Ralph Wilson Stadium before the November 29 game versus Miami!
Diane Austin, vice-president, marketing, Perry's Ice Cream, said, "Bills fans are the best football fans in the country. For the 50th anniversary season, we wanted to recognize the best of the best, and find the craziest, wackiest, most passionate Bills fans. The winners will get some great prizes - like being able to hang out with Jim Kelly. But I think they'll be even more excited to be recognized as the Ultimate Bills Fans, representing the millions of loyal fans who love this team. Go Bills!"
