Beane is donating $20,000 to relief efforts and partnering with the United Way of Buffalo & Erie County to help raise awareness.
In addition to the donation, the Bills are running a sweepstakes to offer a chance for fans to win prizes, including the opportunity to participate in the team’s draft, which takes place April 23-25.
Per the team’s official website, the initiative kicks off today and runs through Friday, April 17. Award winners will be randomly selected from entrants. Prizes include:
» One winner will have a once-in-a-lifetime chance to be on the phone as Beane calls in Buffalo’s first draft pick (tentatively April 24; the Bills‘ first selection is slated for the second round).
» One winner will participate in an exclusive one-on-one Zoom Q&A with him.*
» One winner and three guests will enjoy lunch with Beane and a tour of the ADPRO Sports Training Center.*
» One winner will join Beane at a Bills practice.*
» One winner will get four (4) 100 level tickets to the Bills 2020 home opener.
» One winner will be awarded an autographed Josh Allen jersey.
*Date and time to be mutually agreed upon.
“I thought with the draft coming up in a few weeks, that this would be a nice distraction for people who are going through tough times right now,” Beane said. “We know how enthusiastic Bills fans are, so I’m just trying to find a way to engage them and to open up opportunities that fans don’t have access to generally and to inspire them to get involved.”
