OPPORTUNITY AWAITS TO RAISE MONEY FOR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS
As the Green Bay Packers are in the midst of offseason training, Lambeau Field also is preparing for the upcoming 2006 season. Included on the checklist this year is finding a few more groups to staff the stadium's concession stands.
In a longstanding yearly tradition, non-profit organizations work the stands, serving food and drink to fans attending the games, and raise a substantial amount of money for their respective causes. Included among the organizations are athletic booster clubs, as well as church, youth and school groups.
Levy Restaurants, the company that oversees all food and beverage operations at Lambeau Field, has scheduled groups for most of the stadiums concession stands, but still has a handful of openings available for other non-profit organizations to get involved.
"It's a great way for a fundraising group to earn some money for their cause," said Scott Kleckner, Levy's director of operations at Lambeau Field. "We're especially looking for large groups of 20 or more people to work the busiest stands with the highest volume. It's an exciting place to work for the groups and a lot of fun to fulfill the food and beverage needs of Packers fans at Lambeau Field."
In 2005, 63 groups worked at Lambeau Field and collectively raised more than $700,000 for their causes.
Organizations interested in staffing one of Lambeau Field's concession stands are encouraged to contact Carli Allen, NFP Group Coordinator, for more information. She can be reached by telephone at 920/965-3755 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
