BUFFALO, N.Y. (RELEASE) - Buffalo Bills Legend and Future Hall of Fame Receiver, Andre Reed, has launched a new business aimed at raising money for the youth of Western New York. Andre is pleased to announce and introduce Over the Middle (OTM), his very own signature all purpose sauce. Mr. Reed and his "Over the Middle" team are in town to visit The Kids Escaping Drugs Campaign and tour the Renaissance Campus as well as visit with the stores that will be carrying his Over the Middle All Purpose Sauce.
For 15 seasons, he was known for being an all purpose Over the Middle receiver. Now, he has taken this reputation off the field and into the marketplace creating a signature all purpose sauce for sauce lovers everywhere.
Over the Middle is a signature all purpose sauce that comes in a 12.7oz bottle. Fans can grab a bottle of Andre's Over the Middle All purpose sauce starting in late February at Buffalo-area Dash Markets, Wegmans and Tops stores. A portion of the proceeds from the sales of Over the Middle will benefit Kids Escaping Drugs, which supports the Renaissance Campus, Western New York's only long-term residential treatment facility for teens addicted to drugs and alcohol. The Campus consists of three main buildings where 62 patients rebuild their lives free of drug and alcohol addiction.
In addition to retail purchase from stores, Over the Middle can also be found on the company's website www.andrereedotm.com . Purchases made on this website will also include a special opportunity for football fans to enter to win a chance of an all inclusive trip to golf with Andre Reed at his 2nd Annual Celebrity Golf Classic in Allentown, PA July 17th, 2011.
"My father, who passed away fifteen years ago, told me, 'Son, if you have a chance to make a difference, if you can have a voice, then you've got to take advantage of that and make a difference,'" said Mr. Reed, founder and owner of OTM. "My passion for giving back combined with my father's vision inspired the creation of OTM. I'm excited about the launch of Over the Middle in the Buffalo area and hopefully plenty of sports fans in Western New York will make the sauce a part of their grilling routine," said Reed. "More importantly to me, many children who are battling addiction will benefit from the sales through The Kids Escaping Drugs Campaign."
