Bills give kids the chance to announce live draft picks from New Era

It Starts With One.

It starts with one person making a difference.

This year for Day 3 of the NFL Draft, the Bills will be celebrating those who have made a positive impact on the Western New York community. To do so, the Bills will be on the scene on Saturday, April 29 at New Era Cap headquarters in downtown Buffalo with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County and Bills legend Steve Tasker to announce the team's selections for rounds five and six. All the fun will be streamed live on Buffalobills.com and on NFL.com. A select number of picks from around the League will also be featured on the NFL Network Draft programming.

For the Bills, there was no better place to hold such a special event than with their Buffalo-based partner, New Era. Not only will the event allow fans to get a behind the scenes look at the organization, it will bring them closer to the community.

"As the official cap of the National Football League, New Era is no stranger to the NFL Draft. Yet, this is the first time we'll be hosting the Buffalo Bills Day 3 Draft picks and we couldn't be more excited," said Josh Feine, Vice President Sports Marketing and Corporate Sponsorships, New Era. "Our partnership with the Bills organization goes beyond just a naming rights deal. We're continually looking for opportunities to extend our relationship and this event is proof of that."

Just as New Era is a staple in Western New York, so too is Big Brothers Big Sisters. Year after year the organization does its part to make a positive impact on the lives of countless children in Erie County, and around the country, through one-on-one mentoring services.

"We are so grateful for our partnership with the Buffalo Bills and the wonderful opportunities it provides for our Little Brothers and Sisters," shared Thomas Guagliardo, CEO Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County. "To be part of such an exciting day filled with unique experiences to share with their Big Brother or Big Sister creates moments and memories for these Littles that will last a lifetime."

The unique Draft Day 3 experience will give eight Littles and eight Bigs from Big Brothers Big Sisters the chance to design a cap, which will be sold on New Era's website. All proceeds will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters of Erie County.

Another new and exciting component that fans will notice on Draft Day 3 this year, is that round six draft picks will be youth football themed. Joining the Bills to help announce the team's selection will be flag football team members from the Hamburg Recreation Department NFL Flag League and Youth Advantage NFL Flag League.

Follow along as the Bills, New Era and Big Brothers Big Sisters make Draft Day 3 one to remember.
