With the holidays upon us and the New Year just around the corner, more Broncos are helping those less fortunate celebrate the season.
John and Linda Lynch hosted the 11th Annual John Lynch Foundation Christmas Party for Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver last night. The party for 35 children included a surprise visit from Santa to deliver gifts courtesy of Wal-Mart, a holiday dinner and attendance at the musical White Christmas courtesy of the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The program originated in Tampa, Florida and each year participating Boys and Girls Clubs directors nominate children from each club to attend. The children’s wish lists were secretly collected and then granted by the John Lynch Foundation and Wal-Mart. The Lynch Foundation was established in 2000 and is committed to developing leaders by encouraging dreams, providing programs that assist and motivate and recognizing achievement and excellence.
In a similar holiday spirit, Daniel Graham hosted 30 children from Young Life and Denver Kids at the Target store in Glendale last night as well. Graham and several teammates helped the kids spend a gift card provided by Target for their families and themselves on holiday gifts. Kids also had the opportunity to have photos taken with each of the players attending. What a fun way to spend the holidays!
