Bills fans to hold 'memorial tailgate' to remember Ralph Wilson

Created: 03/30/2014 11:54 AM WHEC.com

A fan-organized tailgate is set to take place on Sunday to remember Bills owner Ralph Wilson, who passed away this past week.

Our affiliate WGRZ says the event is scheduled to take place Sunday from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Wings Flight lot on California Road in Orchard Park, just behind the stadium. According to organizers, they are prepared for fans from Rochester, Syracuse and Buffalo to all turn out to honor the owner.

There is a $10 fee per car to attend the tailgate and that money will go to benefit Hunter's Hope -- the organization founded by Jim and Jill Kelly for their son Hunter. On Saturday, a private funeral ceremony was held in Detroit for Wilson. The Bills also plan on holding a public memorial for fans next Saturday, April 5 at the team field house.
