Sandra Wright has been a dedicated Bills Season Ticket Member since 1973. For over forty years, Wright and her husband, Dennis, who live in nearby Rochester, New York, have been making the trip to Orchard Park to cheer on the Bills. Wright's passion and commitment to the team, along with her fun-loving spirit, stand out to everyone she meets and is what prompted her husband to nominate her for the Season Ticket Member of the Game award for Week 5.
"My love for the Bills started when my dad used to take me to the games," explained Wright. "I lived in Ripley, New York, at that time, where I went to high school and my dad would just bring me. The minute I went into the old Rockpile, I was hooked. I was a Bills fan."
Over the course of her membership, Wright has made many lasting memories. A few of her most cherished times as a Bills fan include "The Comeback Game" in 1993, the AFC Championship against the Oakland Raiders in 1991 and attending two of the team's four Super Bowl appearances. Additionally, Wright has enjoyed watching many Bills Legends take the field. Her all-time favorite player is Hall of Fame wide receiver Andre Reed and her favorite on the current team is six-time Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy.

For Wright, game days at New Era Field provide a special opportunity to spend time with her friends and loved ones.
"Getting to meet my friends and have a little tailgate… [is one of my favorite things about game day at New Era Field], said Wright. "…We've met a lot of people up at our seats that have become our friends outside of football. I think that's a great thing. I love standing up with my friends and singing 'The Shout Song' after we score – those are the things I like. I love the whole atmosphere of being at the game rather than on TV."
Wright has also grown fond of the benefits associated with her membership.
"I would say definitely the Bills Bucks Card [is a great Season Ticket Member benefit]," said Wright. "…I bought a couple of great shirts and I still have some money left because of the discount and that's amazing to get that 25% discount…That's my favorite and of course, just knowing that if we go to the playoffs we're going to get tickets at home is great too."
The Buffalo Bills would like to thank Sandra for her many years of being a loyal Bills Season Ticket Member and our Season Ticket Member of the Game.
