Hey Bills Backers!
Okay. . .so the first two weeks have not gone according to plan for the Bills. This week, maybe the defense and the offense can both decide to show up for the same game?! I'm pretty sure that's how it's supposed to work! This is the week we turn it around!
C'mon down to the Harp to pick up your Limited Edition 20th Anniversary of Bills at the Harp T-shirt and purchase some raffle tickets to win a Travel Package to the Bills vs. Pats at home in Buffalo (courtesy of Labatt!); all money from the raffle goes directly to Make-A-Wish of Massachusetts and Rhode Island! Down some wings and Blue Light and hang out with a huge crowd who is always there to commiserate, but hopefully to celebrate!! It does not look as though the game will be on local TV this week, so get down to the Harp and hang with us!
Bills vs. Cardinals
Doors open at the Harp at 11am
Tables and bar spots are first come, first served. Get there early if you want to get your favorite spot!
Limited Edition T-Shirts
- We have replenished Men's sizes L, XL, and XXL get there early to get yours before they sell out again!
- We still have sizes S-XL in the Ladies fit
- T-shirts are $15, cash only (there is a Bank of America ATM steps from the Harp)
Now for some exciting Make-A-Wish news!
As we mentioned, thanks to your Charity Day efforts the past 3 years, we were able to grant one complete wish to a 4 year old girl named Alison whose wish was to visit Disney World to meet her favorite Princess, Ariel! You can read her full story in the attachment! You all should be so proud!
It costs an average of $8,000 to grant a complete Wish. We are $5,000 away from granting another complete Wish to a child battling a serious life threatening illness. We are a little bit closer to that goal after the Charity Raffle Tickets we sold Week 1!
Here is how you can help us reach our goal and bring happiness and hope to another local child:
1. Get down to the Harp this Sunday and buy your Raffle Tickets for the Bills vs. Pat Travel Package (donated by Labatt)!
- Tickets will be sold before Kickoff Week 3. We will be selling Tickets at the door and also walking around to tables!
- Travel Package includes: 2 Tickets to the Bills vs. Pats game in Buffalo October 30th PLUS a gift card to use towards travel expenses (or beer and wings!).
- Tickets are $5 a piece, or 5 for $20 (cash only)
- Drawing will take place on 10/23 at the Bills vs. Dolphins game at the Harp, you do not have to be present to win
- 100% of the money goes directly to Make-A-Wish
2. Mark your Calendars for our Bills Backers Give Back Charity Day on December 4th!
- We will have a HUGE prize raffle, a 50/50 raffle, and Squares.
- We will be selling Beef on Weck Sandwiches at Halftime.
- All proceed go directly to Make-A-Wish of Massachusetts and Rhode Island
- Come down to the Harp and help us reach our goal of granting another complete Wish!!
As always, please be respectful to other Backers and Harp patrons. If you have any issues this week, come find one of your Bills Backers Committee members. We hang out at the Main bar on the corner closest to the front door. Can't find us? Just ask a Harp staff member. Also, we love the staff at the Harp, it's only because of them that we are able to have such an awesome Game Day experience. Please treat all staff accordingly, politely and with respect!
We hope to see you all this Sunday!
Your Bills Backers Committee,
Kristen, Jeff, Tim, Chris, George, Mike, and Aimee!
