Buffalo Bills' Eric Wood and teammates join fans at Big Ditch Brewing Co. for a good cause

Buffalo Bills' Center Eric Wood welcomed more than 200 guests to Big Ditch Brewing Co. Monday for his "Flights and Bites" event, raising more than $35,000 to benefit the Eric Wood Foundation.

The foundation aims to provide seriously ill, special needs and physically challenged children throughout Greater Buffalo with daily encouragement and life-changing experiences. Proceeds from the evening will help fund community outreach programs, such as the "E-Zone" and "Operation Big Santa," in an effort to fulfill the mission of the Eric Wood Foundation.

For one evening only, several Buffalo Bills, including Dan Carpenter, Ronald Darby, Marcell Dareus, Jerome Felton, Jordan Gay, Chris Gragg, Gabe Ikard, Richie Incognito, Matthew Mulligan, Garrison Sanborn, Colton Schmidt and Kraig Urbik, joined Wood and fans in a toast to a unique "Monday Night Football" experience that featured custom flights of craft brew, Buffalo-inspired bites, cornhole sponsored by Christopher Williams with Northwestern Mutual and live music by Joe Bachman & The Tailgaters to benefit Wood's cause.

Rob Lederman of Rob's Comedy Playhouse served as the evening's emcee and auctioneer during live and silent auctions.
