The game was shown on national TV, and although the Bulls came up a bit short, the perfect fall evening was an enjoyable event for all of "Alex's Army". The outing was sponsored by Most Valuable Kids of Western New York. MVK is a non-profit whose purpose is to "strengthen and enhance the community by enriching the lives of children." The group passes out donated tickets to professional and collegiate sports, and arts and cultural entertainment events. Check out the MVK website MVKofwny.com for details.
