The Samsung Bills Toronto Kickoff Party is free and will be held on August 13, 2008, from 4:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m. at Yonge-Dundas Square in Toronto.
“This is a monumental time in the sports history of our city,” said Phil Lind, Vice Chair, Rogers Communications Inc. “The Samsung Bills Toronto Kickoff Party is an open invitation to all Torontonians to help us celebrate.”
The Samsung Bills Toronto Kickoff Party will begin with a football festival that will include:
• Live interviews with Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers alumni, including legendary Steeler running JEROME BETTIS and legendary Bills quarterback and hall of famer JIM KELLY
At 8:00 p.m., following the festival, the Bills Toronto Series officially kicks off with a performance by the Buffalo Jills, a Buffalo Bills pep rally, and an appearance by every member of the 2008 Buffalo Bills. After meeting their northern fans, the Bills will depart and attendees will be treated to an exclusive, free performance by Canadian act Hedley.
