Support RPCVCO and See the Nuggets

Displaying

The RPCVs of Colorado is teaming up with the Denver Nuggets for a new and exciting fundraising event! Come watch the Nuggets take on the Celtics and hang out with your fellow RPCVs. The tickets are less than face value, there are three different seating areas to pick from, and $6 from each ticket sold goes to supporting RPCVCO.

This event is not just for RPCVs, so share the link and invite your friends and family, too!  

Click here to find out more about the event, including the pre-game happy hour and how to buy tickets.

If this event is popular, we'll look for similar opportunities with some of the other local sports teams. We hope to see you there!
