It’s a big week for Bills fans as EJ is back practicing and hopefully going to be under center on Sunday (fingers crossed…), but it’s also a big week for our group as it’s time for our Annual Charity Day!!
Bills vs Steelers, 1pm kickoff
Doors open at 11am, come early to grab your table or seat at the bar.
To those new to the group, each year we pick one Sunday to kick it up a notch at the Harp with a special buffet, raffles, 50/50 and squares to raise money for charity. This year, all donations will benefit Make-A-Wish of Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Feel free to tweet us @BillsBackersBOS before, during and after the event with comments and pictures. Attached is a flyer to pass along, and here’s a rundown of what's going on:
The Food:
Beef on Weck Buffet - Halftime
$5 donation gets you a Beef on Weck sandwich and chips
Many thanks to Wegmans Northborough for their donation of the rolls and chips, and the Harp for the roast beef and horseradish. Thanks to their generosity all proceeds from the buffet will go directly to charity!!
The Prizes:
Please note that you (or one of your friends with your ticket) MUST BE PRESENT to win any raffles or prizes. We promise to run thru the post game raffles quickly so we’re not keeping you around too long.
Football Squares
$5 per square, and we’ll start selling squares pregame until the board fills up. Look for the square board at the upper bar, and we’ll make a trip around the bar pregame.
Winnings as follows:
1st Quarter – 10% of pool ($50 on full board)
Halftime – 20% of pool ($100 on full board)
3rd Quarter – 10% of pool ($50 on full board)
Final Score – 40% of pool ($200 on full board)
Remaining 20% of pool will go to Charity
Any empty square wins will go to Charity
50/50 Raffle - Postgame
$1 per ticket, 6 for $5 – sold at the upper bar, and we’ll come table to table during pregame and the 1st half.
We’ll be selling 50/50 tickets pregame and throughout the game. Drawing will be postgame so we can maximize the prize money. Half goes to winner, half goes to charity!
Raffle Giveaways – Throughout 2nd Half with Big Ticket Items Postgame
$1 per ticket, 6 for $5 – sold at the upper bar, and we’ll come table to table during pregame and the 1st half.
These tickets are separate from the 50/50 raffle. We’re not auctioning any items this year, so any raffle ticket purchase puts you in the running for ALL PRIZES (including the Kiko Alonso jersey).
Our donations are growing by the day, but here’s a partial list of what we’ll be giving away:
-          gift cards to the Harp, Anthem Kitchen and Gather (sister restaurants of the Harp) - Donated by the Harp
-          Wegmans Gift Basket - Donated by Wegmans Northborough
-          Bills items including a mini helmets, zubaz hat, foam fingers, and hard hat, and framed photo plaque
-          Pair of tickets to Sabres vs Bruins on 4/12 in Boston at the Garden!! - Donated by Burke Distributors
-          AUTOGRAPHED KIKO ALONSO JERSEY!! - Donated by Russ Brandon of the Bills
So there’s the rundown of all the events for Sunday. Obviously our #1 priority is to cheer on the Bills, so we’ll do our best to keep the giveaways and announcements to halftime, commercials, and postgame. We promise all money donated that’s not part of prizes will go right to charity and we'll send a recap next week about how much was raised. Thank you all in advance for your generosity, and thanks to all those who donated time, resources and prizes to this Sunday’s event.
Also don’t forget – Sunday December 8 is MIGHTY TACO DAY!!!
