Packers Family Night scrimmage announced
Hot off the press from the Green Bay Packers:
The Green Bay Packers announced that 'Packers Family Night, presented by Bellin Health,' will take place Friday evening, Aug. 3. The event will benefit the Wendy's Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Now in its 12th year, 'Family Night' will feature an intra-squad scrimmage between the Packers' offense and defense. Evening activities get underway in the stadium at 5:30 p.m., followed by on-field football drills at 6:30 and the scrimmage at approximately 7:30.
Tickets, priced at $10, will go on sale June 25 at 9 a.m. and be available through Ticketmaster and may be purchased in person, over the phone or via the internet. Tickets also can be purchased at the Packers' ticket office in person. There is no ticket limit on purchases. The application form is available online at www.packers.com, in person at the Packers ticket office or can be requested to be faxed by calling 920/569-7501.
Included in the evening's activities will be the popular Chili's "Jerseys Off Our Backs" promotion with approximately 20 jerseys - all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed scrimmage - to be given away in a random drawing. The Kemps Packers Experience returns this year. The evening will feature other activities for the younger fans, including sidewalk chalk and face painting. The Copps-Pick 'n Save Family Night Picnic also returns and the spectacular Copps-Pick 'n Save Fireworks Show will conclude the night. Parking for the event will be $5, with net proceeds to be donated to the Wendy's Wonderful Kids Program.
In case of inclement weather, no refunds will be issued unless all stadium activities - from 5:30 p.m. until the end of the fireworks show - are cancelled.
