Commerce City, Colo. (June 30, 2011) - Tonight's World Cup of Wine & Beer will take place at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, regardless of the weather, from 6 - 8:30 pm MT. Due to heavy afternoon winds and the potential for evening rain in Commerce City, the fundraising event has been shifted from the field level to the West Concourse. Attendees may use Gate G, which will open at 6 pm, to enter. Parking is available for free on the lots at Dick's Sporting Goods Park, including the VIP lot. Tickets can also still be purchased at the door for $65.
The World Cup of Wine and Beer, hosted by the Rapids players and coaches, features tastings of beer provided by Heineken USA and Coors Light, as well as fine wine from various countries. It is one of several fundraising events put on annually by Kroenke Sports Charities, designed to raise money and awareness in the fight against child hunger and to support positive youth development opportunities in Colorado.
