“The people in Western New York are passionate about our local sports teams and passionate about supporting causes like United   Way,” said Carol Houwaart-Diez, president of the United Way of Greater Niagara.

“We’re grateful to the Bills organization for making generous show of support for United Way and the thousands of people who   benefit from United Way programs and services each year.”

The Kids Day game will feature a host of special activities, including give-aways, interactive games, face painting, appearances   by Billy Buffalo and the Buffalo Jills, reduced concession pricing and a post-game fireworks display.

Kids Day activities begin at 3:30 p.m. The kick-off is at 7 p.m.
