Join us for the official opening ceremony of the Hinman Dental Meeting! Doors and cash bar open at 5 p.m. with a musical prelude until 5:30 p.m. The Keynote Session introduces the Meeting’s Clinicians and Keynote Speaker, Mr. Jim Kelly.
Jim Kelly was the quarterback for the Buffalo Bills from 1986-1996. In addition to four Super Bowl appearances (XXV-XXVIII), Jim holds every major Bills passing record and has thrown for more than 35,000 passing yards and 237 touchdowns. He led the bills to four consecutive AFC Championships from 1990 -1993 and guided the team to six AFC East Championships between 1988-1995. Jim and the Bills Wide Receiver, Andre Reed, are the third most potent passing duo in NFL history with 65 touchdown connections.
In addition to Jim's football career, he has also become a popular figure in the world of sports broadcasting. Jim joined ESPN's NFL Countdown pregame show in May 1998. He had previously been an NFL game analyst for NBC Sports during the 1997-1998 season. Bills Sneak Preview with Jim Kelly has aired in Buffalo and Rochester on the NBC affiliates since 1987. Similarly, the Jim Kelly Radio Show has aired each season in the area since 1987.
In 1987, he established the Kelly for Kids Foundation (KFK), which has raised over one million dollars for children's charities in Western New York. Every summer since 1988, Jim and his NFL colleagues have taught leadership, sportsmanship, responsibility and the fundamentals of football to young athletes at the Jim Kelly Football Camp. Jim is also an oral cancer survivor.
