Vincenza, Jickster, Gina
The last few years, Citadel Broadcasting, the primary sponsors of the Buffalo Jills, have gone all out for Away games in addition to the big parties it throws for home games. 103.3 The Edge held Away game parties partnered with a local sports bar including drink and food specials as well as plenty of giveaways. They also made sure to bring in a pair of Buffalo Jills cheerleaders, in uniform, for the games. This year, 97Rock and DJ Jickster have taken the ball and run with it, to borrow a football analogy. Like last year, this year's parties are held at the Aud Sports Bar on Transit Road in Depew, a place named after the famed Memorial Auditorium which comes complete with plenty of memorabilia from the old Aud. For today's event, fans got free raffle tickets and anytime the score changed in the first half, they got to choose any of a number of prizes from the table filled with plenty of stuff like t-shirts, keychains, bottle coozies, and lots more in addition to drawings for larger prizes. Also, in attendance were a pair of beautiful Buffalo Jills Ambassador Squad members in the forms of rookie Gina and 4th year vet Vincenza. They helped with prizes, talked to fans, and took photos while watching the game with everyone. Check out the pics at http://s15.photobucket.com/albums/a375/buffalojills2005/2010/Packers-Road/
Next week, it's going to get bigger so make sure to show up earlier than just before kickoff to enjoy the festivities. While I don't know exactly what extra stuff Jickster will have going on, I can tell you that there will be calendars for sale at long last. The calendars finally arrived from the printers the other day and the girls will be picking them up this week. While it's definitely turned into a much longer wait than normal, I can assure everyone that, going off the cover shot that was shown at the Golf Tourney and by knowing Jills photographer Brian Garman's work, it'll be worth the wait.
