The Bills closed out 2018 in unforgettable fashion when they paid tribute to fan favorite Kyle Williams throughout their Week 17 game against the Dolphins. During the matchup, the Bills also celebrated a local nonprofit for the organization's dedication to serving Western New York. Through the One Buffalo Organization of the Game program, Bills rookie linebacker Tremaine Edmunds and his teammates honored Gateway Longview as the final award recipient for this season. Prior to the matchup, Edmunds shared a special moment with representatives from Gateway Longview when he presented them with a game ball and thanked them for their efforts.
The organization has been a staple in the community for many years and provides a variety of services for area children and families in order to give hope, protect and enrich their lives.
"It is beyond amazing [to be recognized as the One Buffalo Organization of the Game]," said Vice President of Foster Care and Residential Services, Michelle Cope. "Foster care is near and dear to my heart and a lot of people's hearts. Just to be able to help a young child or [for] siblings and families to be able to be reunified or adopted is a great cause. So, for the Bills to actually to put a focus on that and a lens on that is really special."
Congratulations to Gateway Longview and each of the 2018 One Buffalo Organization of the Game award winners!
