ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. (AP) A Buffalo Bills fan club is planning a tailgate party near the Buffalo Bills stadium to honor the late team owner Ralph Wilson.

Just hours after the team said the 95-year-old Wilson had died at his Michigan home Tuesday, the Bills Mafia fan club announced on Twitter that it would hold a memorial tailgate at a privately-owned parking lot just down the street from Ralph Wilson Stadium.

The group says Bills fans want to say thank you to Wilson the best way they know, with a tailgate party.

The event will start at 1 p.m. Sunday. Parking will cost $10, with all proceeds to be donated to the Hunter's Hope Foundation. The foundation is named for the late Hunter Kelly, son of former Bills quarterback and Hall of Famer Jim Kelly.
