Bills Mafia and Josh Allen Raise $100k for California High School
The Buffalo Bills are coming off one of the most impressive victories in the NFL this season over the defending AFC champion, Kansas City Chiefs 38 - 20. Bills sideline reporter from WGR500 AM in Buffalo, Sal Cappaccio was on The Drive with Charlie & Dan on Wednesday and predicted that Buffalo could rap up the AFC East Championship by Thanksgiving. Don't let Bill Belichick hear you say that! It could jinx things!
Besides the stadium woes that should eventually get worked out, the Bills Mafia recently helped Josh Allen's old high school with a fundraiser. According to an article by Dante Lasting of buffalobills.com, "Bills fans raised over $90,000 dollars for Firebaugh High School through the one-week sale of the gray Firebaugh Eagles throwback hoodies. Josh Allen added a donation to make it an even $100,000 for his former high school."
According to the article, "Allen was seen wearing the hoodie as he strolled into the locker room before the Week 4 game against the Houston Texans. Throughout and after the game there was a frenzy on social media with Bills Mafia asking where they could find this hoodie."
Lasting wrote that "Firebaugh High School didn't make the hoodie anymore, so ADPRO Sports teamed up with the school to have a limited sale that supported Allen's alma mater. In the first 24 hours, 2,500 hoodies were sold. As the sale closed Tuesday night, there were over 4,600 hoodies sold."
"The whole community out here is just buzzing with excitement," Firebaugh High Principal Anthony Catalan told KSEE Sunrise last week. "There's so much pride in the hometown, and that really embodies what Josh means to us, and the entire family means to us. … We're humbled and thankful for all the support that is shown our way. We can't say enough about the Bills Mafia out there, everybody in the Valley and Firebaugh that has helped support this."
This is another reason that the Bills have some of the best fans in any sport!
