Green Bay Packers tight end Bubba Franks Tuesday soundly defeated Detroit Lions tight end Marcus Pollard in a Salvation Army kettle contest.

Franks raised $5,185.05 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Salvation Army's big red kettle in the Younkers wing of the Bay Park Square Mall in Ashwaubenon. Franks' total included $2,500 from Tweet Garot Mechanical of Green Bay, who matched each dollar contributed up to $2,500 to help the cause.

Pollard raised $1,820 at the same time (12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. Eastern) at a Wal-Mart in Canton, Mich.

Franks and the Salvation Army extend their thanks to all supporters who contributed.

In a similar 2002 contest, Franks "out rang" the Minnesota Vikings' Byron Chamberlain while raising nearly $2,000 during his one hour of ringing.
