Donations of US $ 17 (Allen’s jersey number) quickly flowed into the Oishei Children’s Hospital, so a special donation button was created for the Bill’s Mafia.
BUFFALO, NY – The donations came in and now Oishei Children’s Hospital thanks the community and beyond.
After Bill’s Mafia found out about the sad news that Josh Allen’s grandmother had recently passed away, she performed as she has done so often in the past. But also fans and people from outside Bill’s Mafia.
Over 21,000 people donated nearly $ 450,000 to Oishei Children’s Hospital in honor of Patricia Allen.
The donations came after the Bills 44-34 defeated the Seattle Seahawks after it was found Allen played the game on news that his grandmother had passed away.
Donations were made to Oishei in increments of $ 17 (Allen’s jersey number). The hospital created a special $ 17 donation button for Bill’s mafia.
Now Oishei thanks the tens of thousands of people who donated to the hospital. They unveiled a banner in front of the hospital that read “Thank you, Mafia and fans around the world for your support! In memory of Patricia Allen”.
