On Thursday, May 19, Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper signed House Bill 11-1316, or “The Colorado Avalanche and Denver Nuggets Signature License Plate Bill,” which will enable Kroenke Sports Charities to distribute specialized Denver Nuggets and Colorado Avalanche-themed license plates to the citizens of Colorado.
The House Bill was passed by the State Legislature last week, and on May 19 at South High School in Denver, the process will be finalized with the signature of Governor Hickenlooper, who will be accompanied by Denver Nuggets mascot, Rocky, and Colorado Avalanche mascot, Bernie.
Kroenke Sports Charities received over 5,000 signatures from local fans in support of the idea, which was more than enough evidence to initialize the production process of the plates.
Each plate will cost $45 and will be available for purchase starting July 1, 2011. Proceeds will benefit education, health, recreation programs for children and families supported by Kroenke Sports Charities.
