The Timberwolves Dancers performed at the KnockOut Hunger boxing event at the Crowne Plaza Hotel in St. Paul on Nov. 17, an event that targeted raising money to provide food to the Emergency Food Shelf Network.

Approximately 1,500 people attended the event headlined by Osseo-native Caleb Truax, who entered the ring as the Wolves Dancers formed a tunnel. The Timberwolves Dancers were part of the festivities throughout the evening by meeting and taking photos with fans, aiding in raffled drawings and performing prior to the main event in the ring.

“I think it just gives us some publicity and gets our name out there and gets the fans excited for the season,” Wolves Dancer Bri said. “And reminds them that the Timberwolves are out there working hard every day and to come out to games to see us.”

Bri said the best part of the night was getting to know members of the community. There were Wolves fans on hand, but it also allowed boxing fans who don’t watch the Timberwolves a chance to see the Dancers up close.

Veteran Wolves Dancer Tracy said it was a way to be part of a good cause while also showcasing their talent outside of Target Center.

“We don’t get to do a lot of events like this, but it’s been a really fun night,” Tracy said.
