Lambeau Field is set to welcome fans for Saturday's preseason matchup between the Green Bay Packers and Seattle Seahawks. Kickoff will be at noon.
The game is the third annual "Packers Give Back Game" which supports a benefiting charity from Wisconsin during the preseason each year. Saturday's game will recognize the American Red Cross as the event's nonprofit honoree, highlighting their work and amplifying their message before and during the game. The American Red Cross aids the Wisconsin community through disaster relief, blood drives, training in preparedness and lifesaving skills, and support for veterans, military members and their families.
Hundreds of American Red Cross volunteers and their guests will receive a free bus ride to the game, a food and beverage gift card and tickets to a designated area in the north end zone. Prior to kickoff, several Red Cross volunteers will take the field to be recognized. Fans will also hear from Red Cross instructors about the importance of Hands-Only CPR, so they can be better prepared to deliver care in an emergency until professional first responders arrive. Along the Fan Walkway and at Titletown before the game, fans can learn more about the Red Cross' lifesaving mission.
