Athletes in Action (AIA) and the Buffalo Christian Center hosted their annual, "Night Out With The Bills!"on November 13th at the Forbes Theatre in Buffalo.
Many Bills players and their wives shared their personal stories about their life, moral beliefs and being role models with hundreds of inner-city kids and their families at the complimentary event.
The purpose of the event was for the attendees to see the Bills players and their wives as a positive influence on Buffalo inner-city youth. The players and their wives shared their most meaningful stories, signed autographs, took pictures and spoke with many kids and families throughout the evening.
Among the Bills in attendance at the event were safeties Bryan Scott, Jairus Byrd and John Wendling, offensive lineman Brad Butler, defensive lineman Kyle Williams, linebacker Jon Corto, tight end Jonathan Stupar, defensive end Chris Kelsay, and wide receivers James Hardy and CJ Hawthorne.
