Mayors of Super Bowl Cities Wager Volunteer Service

As the Denver Broncos and Carolina Panthers prepare to face off in Super Bowl 50, the mayors from the two cities have come up with a friendly wager that focuses on the importance of volunteering and community service. This will mark the fourth year of the Service Bowl bet.

Mayor Michael Hancock of Denver and Mayor Jennifer Roberts of Charlotte agreed that the winning mayor would arrange for the mayor from the opposing team to participate in a day of volunteer service with AmeriCorps members. 

This service project will be carried out in partnership with the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS), the federal agency that administers AmeriCorps, Senior Corps, and other volunteer programs.
