Toronto Raptor Danny Green Won A Pile Of Puppies Last Night And His Reaction Was Priceless (VIDEO)

The Toronto Raptors braved the snowstorm to host their annual Raps City Social at REBEL on Wednesday night, a red-carpet style event to celebrate the team's successful season. Attendees were treated to an eventful evening jam-packed with entertainment and photo ops with the players. But, even for those who weren't there, it was fun to watch the event unfold through social media.

The Raptors traded their NBA uniforms for streetwear and suits. Raptors newcomer Jeremy Lin tried his hand at bartending, Serge Ibaka and Patrick McCaw busted out dance moves, Pascal Siakam smiled for photos and OG Anunoby autographed Raptors gear.

But, the highlight of the evening was undoubtedly the Pup Quiz. Norman Powell and Danny Green faced off for the prize by answering a lightning round of questions about dogs. Including hard-hitting questions like the most popular dog names in Canada and the highest-grossing movie about dogs.

Last night's event wasn't just an opportunity for fans to have some fun with the Raptors -  it also benefitted a great cause. Net proceeds from Raps City Social will benefit the work of MLSE Foundation and projects like MLSE LaunchPad – a place where youth use sport to recognize and reach their potential. The Sport For Development facility uses sport as the catalyst to provide youth with access to Healthy Body, Healthy Mind, Ready For School and Ready For Work programming.
