The day will kick off with a Fan Appreciation breakfast in Mayo Clinic Square Skyway from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. The breakfast will include complimentary coffee and donuts, and chances to win a variety of giveaways throughout the morning. The celebration will also include appearances from Crunch and the Timberwolves dancers.

Prizes include Timberwolves autographed items, seat upgrades and gifts from partners including a $100 gift card to The Pint, free Papa John’s pizza for a year, a one-night stay at Loews Hotel and vouchers for free CherryBerry at select retail locations. Players will share thank you messages and there will be special performances by the Timberwolves entertainment groups.
The game also marks the final bobblehead night of the year, with the first 5,000 fans through the doors receiving a Gorgui Dieng bobblehead. Five lucky fans will receive autographed sets of the entire 2015-16 bobblehead collector series with Woodchuck collector stand.
