2008 Buffalo Jills Swimsuit Calendar Shoot Fundraiser 

Posted by James at 6:03 AM ET

From Phil's Buffalo Jills and Bandettes Blog:
In past years, when the Jills have gone on the road to shoot their swimsuit calendars, the girls themselves have had to put up some of their own money up front to help cover the costs of the trip. This year, in an attempt to reduce those costs, the Jills put on a party at SoHo as a fund raiser.

To help out, sponsors and Bills players put up prizes for a Chinese auction and Sabres goalie Ryan Miller donated an autographed hockey stick for a silent auction to help out the Jills in their endeavor.

Judging by the turnout, the event was a huge success as SoHo was packed for the entire evening including a pair of former Jills showing up to assist their former squadmates in Kelly Ann (2003-2004) and Danielle M (2005-2006).

Next up for the Jills is the Open Workshop on March 30th, the first step in tryouts for the 2008-2009 squad, a squad that will feature Pro Bowler Nicole P taking over as captain for the departing Aimee while Christina and Danielle S step up as co-captains.
