Buffalo Bills Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly, his wife, Jill, and the Hunter’s Hope Foundation will host the 15th annual Hunter’s Day of Hope and Prayer for Children from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday in the Buffalo Bills Healthy Zone Fieldhouse in Orchard Park.
A free family event, it will feature food, games, prizes and entertainment from Quizmaster, Rince Na Tiarna, Shepherd’s Troupe, and Master Khechen’s Martial Arts and Fitness Academy, among others.
This year the foundation also is asking people around the world to take part in a virtual Day of Hope and Prayer for Children by posting special images from the Hunter’s Hope Facebook and Twitter page on their own Facebook and Twitter profile and picture pages from Thursday to Saturday.

Hunter’s Day of Hope is celebrated in conjunction with the Feb. 14 birthday of the Kelly’s son, Hunter, who died at age 8 in August 2005. The Kelly family established Hunter’s Hope after Hunter was diagnosed with Krabbe Leukodystrophy, an inherited, fatal, nervous system disease.
