Thank You Buffalo Bills Alumni


The Buffalo Bills Alumni Foundation presented CAOO with a $5,000 check yesterday during their annual Charity Check Presentation Luncheon at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Buffalo, New York. The Alumni continue to be loyal supporters of CAOO’s Wounded Warrior program; they have donated funds annually since our chapter’s formation in 2005 and provided special activities for our Wounded Warriors such as attendance at the Buffalo Bills Alumni Gala and the VIP Tailgate Parties prior to the Bills’ home games that coincide with the Rochester River Challenge weekend. Special thanks to Ed Rutkowski who has coordinated the activities to ensure that the Wounded Warriors always receive a warm welcome.
