Orchard Park, NY (WBEN) Because of the huge response, the Bills Mafia says Sunday's memorial tailgate for Ralph Wilson will have a new venue.
"Sadly, it's not under the best of circumstances but if there's one thing Western New Yorkers do, they stick together in tough times," says Del Reid of the Bills Mafia. He says he heard from fans as far as St. Catharines who said they wanted to be there. Now, Reid says the event is moving to the WINGS parking lot on California Road.. "The owner of Hammer Lot hooked us up with owners of WINGS Flight lot, and they were graciously offered their lot," says Reid. He says it can hold 1,000 cars.
Reid says without Ralph Wilson's commitment, there would be no Buffalo Bills at all.
The event will be held from 1pm to 5pm. Admission is $10 per car, with proceeds benefitting the Hunter's Hope Foundation.
