History of the Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation
The Buffalo Bills Alumni Buffalo Chapter has had a very rich experience and a distinct opportunity to be involved with community groups, organizations, and private industry.
We felt that it was necessary for the alumni group to participate and give back to the community that has supported us over the past fifty years.
Camp Good Days and Special Times was one of our first recipients. Other Clubs/Organizations of choice have been:
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Buffalo, The American Cancer Society, AIDS Family Services, Cradle Beach Camp, Children's Hospital, Buffalo Links Chapter Youth Scholarship Program, Hunter's Hope, Roswell Park Alliance, Kids Escaping Drugs, Juvenille Diabetes, YMCA, Doug Flute Jr. Foundation for Autism, Special Olympics, United Negro College Fund, Buffalo News Neediest Fund, Players Assistance Trust Fund, Parkinson's Research, and many more.
The Buffalo Bills Alumni Celebrity Golf Tournament is one of our fundraising events. The tournament has been held at various locations in WNY such as, Wanakah Country Club, Orchard Park Country Club, Lancaster Country Club, Elma Meadows, BrierwoodCountry Club and Hickory Stick Country Club.
Our tournament is held every year with the first Bills home game.
Success comes in the form of acquiring adequate sponsors to commit at an early stage and retaining them from year to year over a period of time.
