PFW reports that Bills Owner Ralph Wilson made a rather huge donation to the Hall of Fame.

Bills owner Ralph Wilson has made a $2.5 million donation to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, supporting a renovation project the museum is planning. In a release issued by the Hall of Wednesday, it was announced that Wilson has made the contribution to help fund a 10,000-square-foot research and preservation center, which has been named the “Ralph Wilson, Jr. Pro Football Research and Preservation Center.” The center is part of a larger project the museum is undertaking, called “Future 50,” which is expected to cost nearly $27 million. “Ralph Wilson’s outstanding contributions to pro football over many decades are legendary,” said Steve Perry, the president/executive director of the Hall. “His generous gift will greatly enhance our ability to preserve the Hall of Fame’s rapidly growing collection of historic documents and artifacts.”
