All available tickets for “Packers Family Night, Presented by Bellin Health” have been sold, the organization reported Monday. Nearly 70,000 tickets for the event have been distributed.
This year’s sellout marks the sixth time in its 12 years the event has sold all available tickets. The most recent such occurrence was in 2008.
‘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. The event will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
New this year is the Lambeau FanCam, a 360 degree photo that will be taken during the event that is later posted on www.packers.com, where attendees can go tag themselves and win autographed items. Tagging your group gives you the chance to share with other family members and friends. Fans will need to be in their seats to be included in the photo. Other activities include 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 Copps–Pick ‘N Save Family Night Picnic and the spectacular Copps–Pick ‘N Save Fireworks Show to conclude the night.
The Kemps Packers Experience also returns this year next to the Tundra Tailgate Zone with a wide array of games including: the Gauntlet, Bungee Run, Touchdown Run, QB Challenge, Rookie Camp, Punt Challenge and Helmet Bounce. The evening will feature other activities for the younger fans, including sidewalk chalk and airbrush tattoos. In addition to the regular parking lot activities, a large, Packers-themed sand sculpture will be created throughout the day in the parking lot near the Oneida Nation Gate.
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.
