NFL Commissioner Goodell to attend Jim Kelly's charity gala

BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) Hall of Fame quarterback Jim Kelly's 30th annual charity gala and golf tournament will include a special guest, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell.

The Kelly for Kids Foundation announced the commissioner will attend the charity auction and gala and golf tournament being held on Sunday and Monday.

Kelly is the former Buffalo Bills star quarterback who established the foundation in 1986. The foundation took on extra special meaning for Kelly after his son Hunter was born with Krabbe disease, an inherited nervous system disorder. Hunter Kelly was eight when he died of the disease in 2005.
