The event was organized by local entrepreneur and promoter Tim Walton and was sponsored by DirecTV/ IR Systems, PantSaggin.com,TheBatavian, and Next Level Fitness.

In the Spirit of Chistmas, I think it's best that I keep my "Rude, Inappropiate" comments to myself!!
I believe the Christmas spirit is to give, Gary. So please give us your comments. I know there are some of us that are thinking them!
".......but missed chances hurt the Bills. Stevie Johnson lost a fumble at the Miami 17 and dropped a pass in the end zone,...."
Perhaps #13 should focus a tad more on his specific skill set and less on making appearances at bars.
Are these the future citizens and leaders of this once great Country??? I hope not!!
For those of you that want to "bash" the event or Stevie just think about a few things. To start Stevie came Friday night and had all day Saturday to relax and then the flight to Miami. Athletes are able to enjoy there time off too. He's gone out and they've won and he's gone out and they've lost, and all he drinks is water when he's out. Stevie's appearance had no benefit to him at all. He did this as a favor for myself and the people of Batavia with no financial gain because he knew Batavia had never had this kind of appearance and show. I don't do these events in Batavia to make money. I do them because people have asked for something to do, when the city lacks entertainment. I do them because people enjoy them. After many events in Buffalo with thousands of people, rarely is there ever a negative comment. In Batavia, there are some every time by close minded people. Many of them are by the same people that "care" for the city and wanted to see it thrive for future generous. Not many people of those younger generations that get bashed, plan on staying in Batavia, for the reasons that "there is nothing to do" and when people try to do something, there isn't always much community support for local events or endeavors. Maybe it's time to open your mind a little bit and realize that things that happen aren't always in your interest, but they really are good for the community to have.
Tim, The Batavian is proud to have been co-sponsor of this event. Thank you for the opportunity. I had a good time at the party.
Too bad some people always find something negative to complain about. When all you do is bash and complain it really shows your true personality and how unhappy you are with yourself. Wish I could have made the event, but already had other plans. Local businesses doing something positive and pro athlete's volunteering their own time.....sounds terrible...lol. Please as I do, disregard the ones who constantly bash and complain on here. Must really stink to go through life so unhappy. Thanks to The Batavian, Tim Walton, Ken Mistler and City Slickers for being positive contributors to our city!
I agree with Russ. Some people just whine and cry about everything, but do very little themselves.
