2017.04.11 Goals for Success

Wells Fargo donates $3,500 to the Gold Crown Foundation

On October 15, Joshua Gatt netted the Rapids’ quickest goal of the season in the third minute of an eventual win over rival Real Salt Lake. Gatt's strike marked the final goal at Dick's Sporting Goods Park during the 2017 season, and a 14th for the home side since June 17. Each of those 14 goals led to Wells Fargo donating $250 to local youth sports thanks to the 'Goals for Success' program.

Home scores from Aigner (2), Badji (3), Gatt (1), Gordon (2), Hairston (2), Doyle (2), Serna (1) and Sjöberg (1) meant that a total of $3,500 was donated by Wells Fargo to assist Gold Crown Foundation of Denver in their ongoing commitment to improving the lives of youth through their athletic and enrichment programs in the community.
