WELCOME TO

BUFFALO BILL'S ROUNDUP

MEMORIAL GOLF TOURNAMENT HOMEPAGE

A TRIBUTE TO WILLIAM FRANCIS KELLY

Bill's story

Please join us for the fourth annual Buffalo Bill's Roundup Memorial Golf Tournament in Denver, CO! Buffalo Bill's Roundup is a tribute to William Francis Kelly, who passed away on November 6, 2020 from a tragic fentanyl poisoning and overdose. Buffalo Bill's Roundup was created to keep his spirit alive, celebrate his life, and raise donations to contribute to a charity in his honor. 

Nearly 92,000 people across the nation died from fentanyl overdoses in 2020, and that harrowing statistic only continues to rise year over year. In 2023, there were approximately 107,000 fentanyl overdoes deaths in the US. Illicit fentanyl, fentanyl poisoning, the opioid epidemic, addiction, and mental health are such complex, but very real problems that plague our friends and family. Our hope is that Buffalo Bill's Roundup helps to stimulate challenging, yet vulnerable conversations about these problems so that we can spread awareness, share knowledge, and work together to find solutions. 

Donations from the 2024 event will be sent to the National Harm Reduction Coalition, a non-profit whose mission is to uplift the voices and experiences of people who use drugs and bring harm reduction strategies to scale. For more than 25 years, they have worked with communities to create, sustain, and expand evidence-based harm reduction programs and policies. They hold space for and support communities who are impacted by crises like HIV, hepatitis C, and overdoses, offering resources and training for local leaders to create solutions that work best for their community. Our donations will go towards their new Overdose Prevention program, which helps to distribute Naloxone at scale and enables fentanyl testing and education from coast to coast.

Will lived with love and deep empathy, and he believed in helping others. He would want to leave a legacy of change and using knowledge to bettering people's lives. He was truly happiest when spending time with his friends and family, enjoying the simple things like a round of golf or watching NFL football. He would be proud of how we've decided to honor his life, and he would be so enthusiastic about driving impactful change in the lives of others. Thank you for your commitment to Will's memory.
