When the Denver Outlaws take the field against the Ohio Machine at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Saturday, they will be sporting a new look. Each Outlaw will be decked out in black, gray, and orange camouflage uniforms, in honor of the military, firefighters, police and first responders.
This year, the Outlaws are auctioning off two team-signed jerseys at the game. Proceeds from those jerseys will go to Angels of America’s Fallen, a Colorado-based non-profit which helps children of our fallen military and first responders develop into strong and successful adults by providing them positive mentoring and developmental activities when they are at their most crucial developmental phase of life. The individual player’s jerseys will be auctioned off online after the game and proceeds from those jerseys will benefit the Red Cross to help with Colorado wildfire relief and prevention efforts.
The Outlaws have been holding “Heroes Night” for several years. Last year the Outlaws raised over $5,000. Proceeds benefited the Wounded Warrior Project and the Veteran's Passport to Hope, a Denver-based fundraising event aimed at raising awareness for the challenges today's veterans face.
The Outlaws are committed to giving back to the community and want to honor the nation’s and Colorado’s heroes whether that be military, veterans or first responders and help with Colorado wildfire relief. They love that they can offer fans a one-of-a-kind piece of memorabilia and help give back to the community at the same time.
Military, firefighters, police and first responders can purchase half-priced GA tickets ($5) with photo ID.
