Another fun and successful Movie Night in downtown Denver

By Wayne Brant

Friday night was movie night for the Colorado Rapids at Civic Center Park - the second year in which the team has participated in the summer event.

In partnership with the Civic Center Conservancy, the Rapids presented the movie 'Despicable Me' - on a 40-foot screen - as part of Denver's Movies in the Park Series  .

But that wasn't all.

The Rapids Academy also hosted a clinic with children from the Big Brothers, Big Sister program.

Defenders Drew Moor, Shane O'Neill, and Brian Mullan all helped out with the clinic, which included 12 matches. The three then signed autographs and hopped on Rapids-branded bcycles at the park, while mascot, Edson the Eagle, played with the kids in the inflatable.

The club also donated 100 tickets to Big Brother, Big Sisters and the street team was handed out tickets, free bcycle ride cards, and Rapids-branded water bottles and scarves.
