Packers players, coaches and alumni will take over the lanes at the Ashwaubenon Bowling Alley on Wednesday, June 7, for the Packers Give Back Celebrity Bowling Event presented by Nestlé.
Proceeds from the event will benefit the Northeast Wisconsin Technical College (NWTC) Promise Scholarship, a scholarship which promises to keep college within reach for eligible high school seniors who otherwise could not afford the cost of earning a degree.
Area 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.
Those interested in attending the event are reminded to register by May 9 at**http://packers.com/packersbowlingevent**or by contacting the Packers' community outreach department at 920/569-7500.
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, a shirt, their company sign displayed above their lane, plus 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.
The NWTC Promise Scholarship makes going to college a reality for low-income high school seniors, giving disadvantaged and underrepresented students the belief that they can earn a degree. The student who receives the scholarship is promised up to three years of funding, allowing students to attend college essentially tuition-free.
The NWTC Educational Foundation is dedicated to removing barriers that so many students face as they try to earn a degree or diploma and ensuring that each student, regardless of his or her financial situation, will have access to education. 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.
