Orchard Park, N.Y. (WKBW Release) - The Buffalo Bills and M&T Bank are partnering for the seventh annual M&T Bank Draft Day Challenge—a contest where fans predict the Bills first selection of the NFL Draft.
Fans who correctly guess the Bills first NFL Draft pick will be entered to win a prize package. Five winners, selected at random will receive:
· An exclusive “meet and greet” with the top draft pick
· A private tour of the Buffalo Bills facilities
· An autographed NFL Draft helmet
Past winners have enjoyed the chance to get Stephon Gilmore’s early thoughts on facing off against AFC East quarterbacks and C.J. Spiller’s take on his transition from the SEC to the NFL.
Fans can visit www.buffalobills.com/draftdaychallenge or www.facebook.com/mybillscard through April 25th at 5 p.m. EDT to make their prediction. The M&T Bank page regularly provides Bills fans with exclusive content, contests and promotions—starting each season with the Draft Day Challenge. The contest is open to legal residents of the United States who is 13 years of age or older.
“The annual M&T Bank Draft Day Challenge is one of the most popular contests of the year,” said Bruce Popko, Bills Senior Vice President of Business Development. “The contest is fun and engaging from the time our fans enter to the moment they meet our top draft pick.”
“Bills fans are passionate and knowledgeable and the M&T Bank Draft Day Challenge lets them predict their own draft choice for a chance to win. Our long-standing partnership with the Buffalo Bills centers on providing unique opportunities for our customers and fans to engage with the team,” said Peter Eliopoulos, Chief Marketing Officer, M&T Bank.
Last year, Donald Herbert of Hilton, NY, Richard Griswold of Rochester, NY, Kahil Sarikey of Hamburg, NY, Lisa Engler of Depew, NY and David Riederer of West Seneca, NY were chosen at random correctly predicting Stephon Gilmore as the Bills first pick.
