Orchard Park, NY – The Buffalo Bills announced that the annual BlueCross BlueShield Football 101 will take place on Monday, September 15th from 5:30-9:00 p.m. at the Buffalo Bills Field House in Orchard Park. All proceeds from the event will benefit the WNY Women's Fund.
This unique opportunity takes more than 100 fans behind the scenes with Buffalo Bills staff, alumni and players and runs them through the X's and O's of America's beloved game. This year's event will focus on real game action, as the attendees will split into teams, run actual plays, wear official NFL equipment and get an inside look at the players' game day rituals and routines.
In addition to the physical and mental aspects of BlueCross BlueShield Football 101, each participant will enjoy a delicious dinner in the Bills Field House and receive an official "playbook" to take home.
The WNY Women's Fund is a collaborative effort between the United Way of Buffalo and Erie County and the Community Foundation for Greater Buffalo. The Fund's mission is to be a leader in identifying, communicating and funding innovative, effective solutions that improve the lives of women and girls in Western New York.
