Hello all 924 Bills fans!
As we announced a few weeks ago, NYCBBB is teaming up with Hunter’s Hope, which is raising money to establish the Hunter James Kelly Research Institute in downtown Buffalo. The Institute, located in downtown Buffalo at the NYS Center for Excellence in Bioninformatics and Life Sciences at the University of Buffalo is scheduled to open in January 2006. The Institute’s research will focus on repairing myelin (brain and nerve tissue), a finding that would help not only children with Krabbe Leukodystrophy, the disease Jim Kelly’s son, Hunter, suffers from, but will also help patients with Multiple Sclerosis, stroke, and other diseases in which there is white matter destruction of the brain and nervous system.
Hunter’s Hope needs our help! They are raffling off a 2004, sling-shot yellow Chevy SSR, which is one of only 7,000 made! NYCBBB staff has worked with Hunter’s Hope to allow for our members to purchase these raffle tickets online!
Tickets are $20 each, with all proceeds going to the Hunter James Kelly Research Institute. Below is the link with information about Hunter’s Hope and the raffle, which will take place on May 24th. I just purchased a ticket to test it out and it only took me 2 minutes to do! After purchasing a ticket, it will be sent to you via the mail.
IMPORTANT – When filling out your info, please type NYCBBB in the ‘Business’ box. Hunter’s Hope would like to know what different groups are purchasing the tickets.
C’mon NYCBBB, let’s help out this very worthy cause!
Happy Easter to all!
