Charlotte’s mayor has made good on a Super Bowl bet.
Jennifer Roberts joined Denver Mayor Michael B. Hancock on Wednesday for Service Bowl 2016. Roberts flew to Denver and worked with Hancock, the Corporation for National Community Service, AmeriCorps and Senior Corps to refurbish a home in West Denver.
"We were honored to join with the Corporation for National Service to develop our day of service here in Denver, or whether we’re going to Charlotte. Thankfully, we're in Denver and we were able to come and impact the life of an individual in our city and do some work in their home,” Mayor Hancock told 9NEWS.
Roberts was a good sport during the fourth annual Service Bowl, despite the Carolina Panthers losing to the Denver Broncos 24-10.
"It is really great to be in Denver. It's one of those things, it's really great to be able to do service together,” she said.
Organizers hoped the day would draw attention to National Rebuilding Month, in which volunteers rebuild homes and nonprofit facilities across the country.
In the first part of the bet, the losing city’s mayor had to wear the rival’s jersey and post a picture.
