Here is a little bit of information about our charity we have partnered with this year!  We are very excited to have been asked personally by Andre Reed to help him kick off his brand new literacy program with the Boys and Girls Club and it is a great opportunity for us to help him support local children!  All of the money from our charity raffles and from Bills Backers Give Back Charity Day 2017 will go to Andre Reed's foundation to benefit READ with REED 83!  Charity Day this year is December 10th.  Mark your calendars now!
Hall of Famer Andre Reed is making reading cool again for Boys & Girls Club Kids Across America. Andre is encouraging kids now to excercise their brain and challenging them thtough his READ 83 literacy program. For every book read the kids will move one yard closer to a 100 yard touchdown and a chance to come to an NFL game as Reed's guest. 
 
In addition, BG club kids in 5-7 NFL cities that participate annually will have the opportunity to meet and Read with Reed. The legendary wideout will stop by, read and encourage students about the importance of reading. The BGC Alum will also teach the youth about what it takes to ensure they can have a great future, too.
