Lane reservations are now open for area businesses and individuals to join Packers players, coaches and alumni at the Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley on Wednesday, June 5, for the Packers Give Back Celebrity Bowling Event presented by Nestlé.
This year, proceeds from the event will benefit the Wisconsin Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) Association, whose programs throughout the state champion the needs of abused and neglected children. Local CASA programs provide trained, volunteer advocates, who are paired with children who find themselves in the court system through no fault of their own. They help determine a child's needs and wishes and provide valuable feedback to the court system.
Businesses and individuals are encouraged to support the effort by purchasing a lane to join the fun-filled evening and bowl with a member of the Green Bay Packers family.
The Packers and the Wisconsin CASA Association announced Wednesday that proceeds from the Give Back Celebrity Bowling Event will be used to launch 'My Stuff, My Bag' a program to provide foster children in Wisconsin with their own suitcase to carry their personal belongings.
Lanes are available for $1,000 and will include a team of four bowlers per lane, with each team to be joined by one Packers celebrity. All participants will receive a gift and team photo, their company sign displayed above their lane and access to the Nestlé Family Fun Night Buffet.
Registration for the evening begins at 6 p.m., with the bowling event and silent auction to start at 6:30. The silent auction will feature autographed Packers memorabilia, in addition to other items.
For more information and to reserve a lane at the event, please contact the Packers' community outreach department at 920/569-7500, or go to packers.com/packersbowlingevent.
With the proceeds from the Celebrity Bowling Event, Wisconsin CASA will launch a state-wide community service project to give CASA children dignity and ownership while supporting foster families. The project will provide every CASA child with a rolling suitcase filled with necessary personal items that many children are forced to go without, and may include a blanket, pillow, pajamas, underwear, socks, personal care items, books and stuffed animals.
The Packers Give Back Celebrity Bowling Event is a part of Green Bay Packers Give Back, the Packers' all-encompassing community outreach initiative, which includes the Green Bay Packers Foundation, appearances made by players, alumni, coaches and staff, youth football outreach, cash and in-kind donations, Make-A-Wish visits, and community events.
