On Sept. 22, the Denver Broncos Football Club will visit the Boys & Girls Club of Craig to thank fans for their support of the team, according to a news release from the team. From 3 to 4:30 p.m., the public is invited to meet Broncos cheerleaders, Miles the Mascot, Ring of Fame member Billy Thompson and view the team's Super Bowl trophies and enjoy other activities.
"I've always been amazed and humbled by the tremendous support we receive from our fans," Broncos owner Pat Bowlen said in the release. "We know that when we take the field, we represent not just the Denver Broncos organization, but the entire city of Denver, state of Colorado, Rocky Mountain region and other proud citizens of Broncos Country all around the world.
"I wish we could bring the entire team, but the players and coaches are all busy getting ready for the season. Hopefully, the folks will still enjoy what we can do this time of year and know how much we appreciate them."
The event also will feature a presentation of a Broncos Country flag to Craig Mayor Don Jones. Another flag will be on hand for fans to sign, which the team will take back to Invesco Field, where the flag will be displayed for years to come, according to the news release.
The event is free and also will feature autographs, photo opportunities, games and a raffle for Broncos prizes.
