Eric Wood’s Fights and Bites Raises More Than $35,000 to Benefit the Eric Wood Foundation

Buffalo Bills’ Eric Wood and teammates join fans at Big Ditch Brewing Company for a good cause

BUFFALO(October 6, 2015) – Buffalo Bills’ Center Eric Wood welcomed over 200 guests to Big Ditch Brewing Company on Monday, October 5, 2015 for his Flights and Bites event, raising more than $35,000 to benefit the Eric Wood Foundation.

The foundation aims to provide seriously ill, special needs and physically challenged children throughout Greater Buffalo with daily encouragement and life-changing experiences. Proceeds from the evening will help fund community outreach programs, such as the E-Zone and Operation Big Santa, in an effort to fulfill the mission of the Eric Wood Foundation.

For one evening only, several Buffalo Bills, including Dan Carpenter, Ronald Darby, Marcell Dareus, Jerome Felton, Jordan Gay, Chris Gragg, Gabe Ikard, Richie Incognito, Matthew Mulligan, Garrison Sanborn, Colton Schmidt and Kraig Urbik, joined Wood and fans in a toast to a unique Monday Night Football experience that featured custom flights of craft brew, Buffalo-inspired bites, cornhole sponsored by Christopher Williams with Northwestern Mutual and live music by Joe Bachman & The Tailgaters to benefit Wood’s cause.

Rob Lederman of Rob’s Comedy Playhouse served as the evening’s emcee and auctioneer during exciting live and silent auctions.
