Arguably every Bills fan remembers the one play--and one play well--that helped the Buffalo Bills make it to the playoffs last season after a 17 season playoff drought.

That play was by Bengals Quarterback Andy Dalton and it sent lifelong fan, Kevin Forrest, to donate to The Andy and JJ Dalton Foundation.  His $30 donation became the first of now 18,000 donations by Bills fans to their charity.  

It was the natural step for Andy and JJ to give back to the community that gave so much to them.  So when they saw the Buffalo Bills on their pregame schedule, they decided to give back, in person, to Roswell Park.

The Foundation donated $25,000 to the Angel Fund and "The Hub," which is a locker full of electronics for children and families to use during treatment.

Phil Hubble of The Angel Fund reciprocated the Dalton's $25,000 donation for an Angel Fund in Cincinnati.
