additional Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche games to raise
money for individual school sports and athletics -related projects
Score for Schools enables county school district stakeholders
and supporters to purchase tickets for selected Colorado Avalanche

School District supporters receive discounted ticket prices for
select games, but they will also be raising money for the school of
their choice each time they purchase a ticket through Score for
Schools. For each ticket sold, Kroenke will donate $5 back to the
school select at the time of online ticket purchase.
