Draft Day Tickets, Party Reminder, and more

Hello all,

First, tough loss for the Sabres. Hope they can come back from the 3-1 deficit.

Draft Day Tickets! The Bills contacted us and are overnighting us 8 tickets to the draft for Friday and Saturday. We figured we’d give them out to anyone who REALLY wants them. So, we’re giving them to the first 4 people who post on our Facebook page. Winners will get 2 tickets. Just say “gimme the draft tickets” or something like that.

Here’s our Facebook page:

The Bills’ 2010 schedule is out. All Sunday 1pm games!!!

Reminder about our draft party (or parties), which start(s) tomorrow. Details here:

Sam Hoyt Fundraiser:
Sam Hoyt sent us this letter:
My name is Sam Hoyt and I’m a New York State Assembly Member (Dem) that proudly represents the City of Buffalo. I am coming down to New York City on May 12th to receive an award from the New York Preservation League for my Historic Rehabilitation Tax Credit work (we all know that Buffalo is made up of beautiful historic buildings and in bringing back Buffalo we need to preserve and rehab these buildings). I’ll also be there for a fundraiser that Mayor Michael Bloomberg is hosting for me on Wednesday, May 12th from 4-6pm at the Harvard Club (44th b/w 5th and 6th aves).

I am writing to ask you to extend an invitation to the New York City Buffalo Bills Backers to come to my fundraiser at the Harvard Club. I am attaching the invitation for that event onto this email. The ticket price for this event is $1000, but I understand that not everyone can give so generously to elected officials. I’d ask that the buffalo ex-pats give what they can, with a minimum donation of $100. It is no McFadden’s, but when the Sabres make it to the quarterfinals, we will be sure to play the game and have plenty of Labatt on tap and wings at the ready.

I just hope Nix can start his tenure right with this draft!
