Buffalo, NY – Numerous friends, celebrities and sponsors will join Jim Kelly as he celebrates the 31st year of his VIP Charity Gala and Golf Tournament on Sunday, June 4 and Monday, June 5.

Jim Kelly Golf Cl;assicThe annual event raises money for Kelly for Kids Foundation, which has granted close to $5 million dollars to Western New York children’s charities such as Camp Good Days, Make-A-Wish NY, and Hunter’s Hope. This is a sold out event.

“In 1986, when I decided to make Buffalo my home, I couldn’t have imagined reaching 31 years. And yet, looking back, I am not surprised to see so many of my friends here year after year. Buffalo is truly a giving community and I am so blessed,” said Jim Kelly.

The weekend’s events begin with the Charity Gala on Sunday, June 4, at the Adam’s Mark Hotel in downtown Buffalo with emcees John Murphy from The Buffalo Bills media group, along with DJ Jickster and Rob Lederman from 97 Rock.

New this year, ECMC sponsored a special drawing. Each purchase of a Kelly Tough/Buffalo Bills Limited Edition Gift Set qualified each purchaser with a chance to win a trip for 4 to Orland Florida. Only 250 gift sets were sold and the winner will be announced Sunday evening.

Confirmed to be in attendance at the gala and tournament are over 40 national celebrities from the world of sports and entertainment, including former Bills teammates, Thurman Thomas, Bruce Smith, and Steve Tasker; NFL Greats, such as Morten Andersen & John Randle; celebrities from television and movies such as Chris McDonald; and many more friends from football, hockey and sports broadcasting.
