Private funeral services for Buffalo Bills owner Ralph Wilson were held in his hometown of Detroit on Saturday.

The team made the announcement Thursday, two days after the 95-year-old Hall of Fame owner died at his home in Grosse Pointe Shores, Mich.

The Bills are planning to hold a public celebration and remembrance honoring Wilson next Saturday, April 5. A fan organized tailgate event will also be held on Sunday, March 30 at the Wings Flight lot on California Road in Orchard Park. The event is scheduled to run from 1 to 5 p.m.

The Bills ask that donations made on Wilson's behalf be made out to the Hospice Foundation of Western new York, the Alzheimer's Association Greater Michigan chapter, and St. John Hospital Medical Center in support of the Wilson telemonitoring program.
