The event kicked off with a VIP reception in the team's home locker room and provided guests the opportunity to meet President of Football Operations/General Manager John Elway as well as Demaryius Thomas, Emmanuel Sanders and Chris Harris Jr. The nearly 300 VIP guests had exclusive early access to the restaurants to sample the delicious food, as well.
Leading off the event was Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller, who gave opening remarks and even assisted Chef Lon Symensma of Cho 77 with the cooking for fans in attendance.
"We are here for a great cause, Food Bank of the Rockies," Miller said. "It's a great time whenever you can have great food and great people in one spot."
Food Bank of the Rockies is one of the Denver Broncos' 10 flagship community partners. It is one of the largest hunger relief organizations in the Rocky Mountain Region and has provided nearly 571 million pounds of food to member agencies since its inception in 1978, which translates to nearly 476 million meals for people in need.
