Colorado Rapids Fire Relief Charity Auction Now Open!
The Colorado Rapids Fire Relief Charity Auction is now open. The auction will run from July 20, 2012 to August 5, 2012, with proceeds going to Help Colorado Now.
The Colorado Rapids team wore jerseys featuring HelpColoradoNow.org and a Colorado state flag in an effort to help support fundraising efforts relating to the devastating wildfires throughout the state. HelpColoradoNow.org is a website that provides information on how to help Coloradans in need, whether through donations of money or materials, or by volunteering.
HelpColoradoNow.org is a partnership between the Colorado Division of Emergency Management and the Colorado Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster which brings together government agencies and non-profit organizations to assist communities affected by disasters. It includes links to various organizations accepting donations of money and materials in their response to the wildfires, as well as information on volunteering to help the state recover from these disasters.
The Rapids’ special, game-worn jerseys from the July 4th match, featuring HelpColoradoNow.org and the Colorado state flag, are being auctioned off with proceeds benefitting organizations supporting disaster relief. In addition to supporting HelpColoradoNow.org, the Rapids continue to raise money for charitable organizations, donations were accepted at the July 4th match for the Colorado Professional Fire Fighters Foundation; Kroenke Sports Charities matched up to $10,000 of all funds raised.
Thank you for your support. Let the bidding begin!
