The award is given to a player on the team who demonstrates the "greatest involvement in the community."

The winner will be presented with a trophy before the Wolves play the New Orleans Pelicans at 7 p.m.


It's also Fan Appreciation Day for the Wolves and they'll be handing out a variety prizes to fans during the game. The first 5,000 fans at the game will receive a Gorgui Dieng bobblehead doll.
