Aug. 7 Event to Benefit Wendy's Wonderful Kids Program; General Ticket Sales Begin June 25
The Green Bay Packers on Saturday reminded interested parties that group ticket orders for 'Packers Family Night, Presented by Bellin Health,' are due Monday, June 21.
The group ticket program (minimum of 50 tickets) application form is available online, in person at the Packers ticket office or can be requested to be faxed by calling 920/569-7501. Group ticket orders are restricted to approved groups and organizations, and are to be used for the sole purpose of accommodating a group or organizational outing. Resale is prohibited.
Space is limited for group orders. If the total number of tickets requested by groups exceeds the number of seats available, a drawing will be held to determine which groups will be accommodated. Groups will be seated together in the same vicinity.
'Family Night,' set for Saturday evening, Aug. 7, 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. The event will benefit the Wendy's Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
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, other entertainment, the Copps-Pick 'N Save Family Night Picnic and the spectacular Copps-Pick 'N Save Fireworks Show to conclude the night.
The Kemps Packers Experience returns this year. The evening will feature other activities for the younger fans, including sidewalk chalk and airbrush tattoos.
Tickets, priced at $10, will go on sale Friday, June 25, at 9 a.m., 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. A limit of eight tickets per purchase will be in place for an initial sales period to allow more fans to have the chance to make a transaction. All individuals, regardless of age, require a ticket for admittance.
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.
For fans not attending the event, WLUK-TV FOX 11 again will originate a statewide telecast. In addition to Green Bay, the event will be televised on WITI-TV in Milwaukee, WMSN-TV in Madison, WFXS-TV in Wausau and WLAX-TV in La Crosse. Hosted by Drew Smith and other members of the Fox 11 sports and news staffs, the live broadcast will start at 6:30 p.m.
