All available tickets for “Packers Family Night, Presented by Bellin Health” on Aug. 2 have been sold, the organization reported Monday. Nearly 73,000 tickets for the event have been distributed.
This year’s sellout marks the eighth time in its 14 years the event has sold all available tickets.
‘Family Night’ will feature a full practice, including 11-on-11 sessions with live contact. The evening remains family-focused and will feature a game-like atmosphere with use of the video boards, gameday music and a fireworks show at the end of the night.
Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and the Packers’ 2013 highlight film will be playing on the video boards as fans enter the stadium. Warm-ups will begin on the field at 6:25 p.m. and team introductions will follow at 7:30 p.m. The practice will begin at 7:45 p.m. The event will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Activities include the popular Chili’s “Jerseys Off Our Backs” promotion with Packers jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed practice – 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.
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, WLAX-TV in La Crosse and WEUX-TV in Eau Claire. Hosted by Drew Smith and other members of the Fox 11 sports and news staffs, the live broadcast will start at 7 p.m.
