Sport Management students, faculty, advisors give boost to Buffalo Bills

Sport Management Club students and faculty contributed to the excitement surrounding the home opener of the Buffalo Bills football team at New Era Field recently by participating in a fundraiser and also donating their time to benefit the Buffalo Bills Foundation.

Just two days before the nationally televised game, club members and advisors installed 200 seat cushions under the direction of Andy Levulis, ’14, a Sport Management graduate who now serves as a customer service representative in ticket sales and services with the Pegula organization, owner of Buffalo’s two professional sports teams.

The Fredonia contingent of Anthony Colquitt, Keith Ruiz and Andrew King along with club advisor Jason Becker installed premium seat cushions for patrons interested in a more comfortable experience. For their services, the club received $400 that will go to meet expenses for its annual trip to the Super Bowl in February 2017.

In addition to watching the nationally televised game between the Bills and New York Jets and savoring the electric atmosphere, club members also helped the mission of the Buffalo Bills Foundation by volunteering to sell 50/50 tickets. Anthony Colquitt, Zach Earle and Mike Dineen were joined by advisors Drs. Penny Hite and Sungick Min to help the foundation sell more than $100,000 in tickets, which broke the all-time Buffalo Bills record for 50/50 ticket receipts.

Money from ticket sales will be used to support organizations that are committed to improving the quality of life in Western New York.
