Buffalo, NY…January 25, 2011…The Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation will be making an official announcement regarding their 2011 Weekend of Events theme and support of the Wounded Warrior Project on Friday, January 28 at 8:00PM at the Hotel Mezzanine near the Events Center of the Seneca Niagara Hotel & Casino, 310 Fourth Street, Niagara Falls, New York.

Buffalo Bill Alumni Legend and Pro Football Hall of Famer Joe DeLamielleure, will also be in attendance at the new conference to announce his personal support for the Wounded Warrior Project. In February, Joe “D” will be climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro in Africa in an effort to help raise funds and awareness of the Wounded Warrior Project.

“Every year, the Bills Alumni selects a major recipient from the funds that we raise from our annual Weekend of Events” stated Bills Alumni President Booker Edgerson “We understand the difficulty that these American servicemen and servicewomen have when they return home from the war in Iraq and Afghanistan and we want to do our part to demonstrate to these hero’s how much we value what they have done for us and our country” added Edgerson.

Several Buffalo Bills Alumni will be on hand at the news conference including, Booker Edgerson, Charley Ferguson, Ed Rutkowski, Lou Piccone and others.

The Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation was founded in 1999 and is comprised of past Bills players that have left an imprint on society during their football careers and want to continue molding society in a positive manner.  Not only have they changed the game, but they have touched and shaped Buffalo as we know it today.
