DENVER (MARCH 11, 2019) – Denver Broncos Wide Receiver Emmanuel Sanders is using the power behind his athletic success to better the community by hosting his Arcade Adventure on Wednesday, June 5 at 1UP Arcade Bar.
The Arcade Adventure will benefit the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation, whose mission is to provide children of financially-disadvantaged families with resources and support to reach their full potential and attain a better life.
On June 5, Sanders and his Denver Broncos teammates will step off the football field and into 1UP Arcade Bar to game with 150 supporters of Emmanuel’s foundation, Denver’s charitable community and Broncos fans. Guests will enjoy some high-intensity arcade gaming, mouth-watering food and drinks and exciting live and silent auctions.
The primary community outreach program of the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation is Emmanuel’s Lockers, which are installed throughout schools in the Denver area and filled with sports equipment for students who may not have access to some of the sporting equipment they need to participate and/or succeed in after-school sports programs.
Emmanuel unveiled his first Emmanuel’s Locker at Kepner Beacon Middle School in April 2018.
Based around providing financially-disadvantaged kids in Denver with new sports equipment so they are able to participate with their peers in amateur youth sports, Emmanuel's vision is to instill life fundamentals, such as perseverance, teamwork, work ethic and discipline, in the kids his foundation helps through the power of sports.
To help the Emmanuel Sanders Foundation make an impact, sponsorships and tickets for the Arcade Adventure can be purchased online at emmanuelsanders.org. All tickets include food, drink and $10 in game tokens. Outside memorabilia is prohibited.
