M&T Bank to host not-for-profits at Buffalo Bills games

Eight local not-for-profit organizations will receive a Buffalo Bills game-day experience from M&T Bank for the charitable work the organizations do in the community.

M&T Bank is again donating eight game-day tickets in The Comfort Zone, a private section within the M&T Club, to eight local not-for-profit organizations as a “thank you” for their service to the Western New York community, a release from the bank said.

The Comfort Zone features a private club entrance, comfortable lounge seating, and complimentary food and beverages.

“We’re grateful for the opportunity to share these once-in-a-lifetime experiences with some very deserving Bills fans,” said Shelley Drake, president of the M&T charitable foundation. “We’ve enjoyed a long relationship with the Buffalo Bills, and creating this private section is one way we’re able to use our partnership with the Bills to give back to our community.”

Among the organizations set to receive tickets are Buffalo Maritime Center; Buffalo Niagara Waterkeeper; EPIC for Children; Hospice Niagara; Journey’s End Refugee Services; Kevin Guest House; The Massachusetts Avenue Project; and YMCA Buffalo Niagara.

“The Comfort Zone is another example of M&T Bank’s superior commitment to the Western New York commun ity,” said Erica Muhleman, Pegula Sports and Entertainment’s executive vice president of business development.

“In this unparalleled space, M&T Bank is again rewarding local organizations for their outstanding community work by providing an unbelievable game-day experience that can only be found in The Comfort Zone. The Buffalo Bills are proud to partner with M&T Bank on programs like this to support our outstanding community.”
