Baden Street Settlement will host former Buffalo Bills running back Thurman Thomas as the keynote speaker for its annual gala at 8 p.m. on Oct. 19 at the Holiday Inn Rochester Downtown, 70 State St.
Thomas was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 2007 and the College Football Hall of Fame in 2008. He is one of only six running backs to have over 400 receptions and 10,000 yards in rushing.
This year’s gala will honor the memory of Trent “T.J.” Jackson. Proceeds will support the Mature Adult Resource Center, a program that provides individuals ages 60 and older with a balanced meal, a place to socialize and activities. Visit for information.
