Nuggets take part in Punch Bowl Social for charity


While the Denver Nuggets lost yet another game to the Washington Wizards this season in a poor performance on Friday night, the off the court game is still intact in Denver. The Nuggets do many fundraisers and special appearances each year and on Thursday night, it was no different.

The whole team stopped by the Punch Bowl Social, one of the newest upscale restaurants in Denver, to mingle with friends and fans for a fundraiser. The Nuggets players, coaches and dancers took part in bowling, ping pong, foosball and many other activities to help raise money for Kroenke Sports Charities.

Kroenke Sports Charities, one of the Nuggets main charities, raises funds for youth recreation, health and education programs in Colorado.

Fans had the option of either purchasing a $200 VIP  ticket which allowed them an hour of scheduled time with the Nuggets players and coaches. VIP ticket holders also received a limited edition gift. Fans could also purchase a ticket for $100 that didn’t include the VIP treatment.

Throughout the night, fans posed for pictures with their favorite Nuggets and the teammates were able to offer each other advice on the bowling alley.

While the final money raised wasn’t available at press, the Nuggets continue to improve their image off the court as well as on it.
