Banner between Buffalo General, Oishei Children's Hospital shows off Bills pride

Ace Flag made the 'Let's Go Buffalo' pennant with 'We Heart 17,' a thank you for the more than $1.1 million that fans have donated to the hospital.

BUFFALO, N.Y. — More and more signs of Bills pride are showing up all over the area going into Saturday night's playoff game, which will be aired on Channel 2.

A giant banner recently went up on the bridge between Buffalo General and Oishei Children's Hospital.

Ace Flag made the "Let's Go Buffalo" pennant with "We Heart 17," a thank you for the more than $1.1 million that fans have donated to the hospital in the name of Josh Allen's late grandmother, Patricia.

In November, Josh Allen's grandmother, Patricia Allen, passed away. After the Seattle Seahawks game, a fan suggested that people donate $17 to Oishei Children's Hospital.

After the mass amounts of donations, the hospital named the Pediatric Recovery Wing after Patricia Allen, as well as a new fund to honor her.

2 On Your Side caught up with a nurse from the Oishei's STAT team, which is one of the departments benefiting from the Patricia Allen fund. She shared how much all the donations have meant to the hospital staff.

"Better the Bills do, the better it is for the Patricia Allen fund. As you can see it looks like fans respond to touchdowns. My family are huge Buffalo Bills fans so we all relate to it," nurse Valerie Winkelman said.
