Community outreach program will provide financially disadvantaged Denver boys and girls with sports equipment in addition to funding their sporting fees so they can participate with their peers in amateur youth sports.

Denver Broncos wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders welcomed more than 270 guests to Jet Linx Denver on May 31 for his first annual “A Night to Catch Flight.”

For one night only, Sanders and his Denver Broncos teammates, including Von Miller, stepped off the field and joined Broncos fan, the Denver community and supporters of Emmanuel’s foundation for a unique experience featuring a cocktail reception, world-class cuisine and exciting live and silent auctions. Thank you to the sponsors 5280 Magazine, Joel Javer, iHeartMedia, 9NEWS, GroundFloor Media and CenterTable and Mike Ward Automotive.

The funds raised at Emmanuel Sanders’ A Night to Catch Flight will support community outreach programs of the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation, such as the Gear Up! program. The Gear Up! community outreach program will provide financially disadvantaged Denver boys and girls with sports equipment in addition to funding their sporting fees so they can participate with their peers in amateur youth sports.”

Broncos Boys & Girls Club

On Wednesday, May 3 Emmanuel visited the Broncos Boys & Girls Club and talked to 100 kids about how the Boys & Girls Club changed his life and the importance of working hard and believing in yourself. Emmanuel passed out Papa John’s Pizza, played basketball and participated in other activities with the kids.

Emmanuel shared the exciting news about the launch of his foundation, the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation, and how the foundation is going to impact the lives of kids in Denver specifically by providing financially disadvantaged boys and girls with the sports equipment they need to be able to participate with their peers in amateur youth sports.

After his visit to the Broncos Boys & Girls Club, he took the kids to the movie theater for a special advance screening of King Arthur.
