Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. Opoly game created

Posted May 2, 2013

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. today introduced a Monopoly-style board game, called “Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. Opoly,” with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting two local nonprofits, the Packers Hall of Fame Inc. and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.

Prominent local businesses, such as Title Town Oil, Grand Central Station, Pomp’s Tire, Escort Limousine Service, Bayland Buildings and Doc’s Harley-Davidson, will fill the property spaces on the board game. A total of 2,500 games have been produced and will be available for purchase at Grand Central Station locations in Northeast Wisconsin for $39.95 each.

The board game, which was produced and manufactured by All Sports Marketing USA, LLC., will feature on the cover a photo of Lambeau Field the day the Lombardi Trophy returned to Green Bay after Super Bowl XLV. The game board center will list all inductees of the Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. along with the Packers Hall of Fame logo.

“Among the goals of the Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is to deepen the fans’ appreciation of the history of the Packers, and this game accomplishes that,” said Tom Murphy, Packers Hall of Fame Inc. archivist and board member. “Fans can have fun and support two worthwhile charities while they learn.”

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. is a non-profit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers that guides the Hall as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin. The Hall raises funds through its annual induction banquet, Golf Classic and other events to develop new exhibits and expand its archives. Historic memorabilia donated by individuals to the Hall may qualify as tax-deductible gifts. For more information visit the Hall online at www.packershalloffame.com.

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. 43rd Annual Induction Banquet will to be held the evening of July 20, 2013, in the Lambeau Field Atrium. Former players Chris Jacke and Kabeer Gbaja-Biamila, and contributor Emil Fischer will become the newest members of the Hall that evening. Tickets for the banquet, which begins with the doors opening at 4:30 p.m. with a cash bar, and dinner and program to follow at 7 p.m., are $135 each. Tables of 10 also are available for $1,300 and are assigned in the order in which they are purchased. Early reservations are recommended.

The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame Inc. Golf Classic is set for Monday, July 8, 2013, at The Bull in Sheboygan Falls, Wis. Tickets are still available and also can be purchased through Gwen Borga.

Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Hall moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field. In 2003, it was relocated to a spectacular new, 25,000-square foot facility in the Lambeau Field Atrium. The Hall of Fame is open on non-game days from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hours may vary on game days and holidays. For more information, contact the Hall of Fame at 920/569-7512.
