More than 33,000 tickets have been sold for "Packers Family Night, presented by Fox 11," to be held in Lambeau Field Saturday night, Aug. 7.

The popular event again will feature the Packers' intrasquad scrimmage, beginning at 7 p.m., followed by an on-field question and answer session with GM/Head Coach Mike Sherman and several players.

Also included in the evening's activities is the popular "Shirt Off Our Back," with approximately 20 jerseys - all of which will have been worn by the players in the just-completed scrimmage - to be given away in a random drawing.

A fireworks show returns to conclude the night.

A popular attraction in its first three years, the event drew 48,898 in 2001, 50,240 in 2000 and 46,420 in 1999.

Tickets, priced at $8, may be purchased either in person or over the phone.

In-person sales are being conducted at a number of locations, including the Packers ticket office at Lambeau Field, the Resch Center box office and all TicketStar outlets. Area TicketStar outlets include Cub Foods in Appleton, Curry's Foods in Marinette and Dr. Freud's in Manitowoc.

Over the telephone, tickets can be purchased by calling 920-494-3401 in Green Bay, or toll free, 800-895-0071 from any other location.

Fans can purchase tickets on the internet as well by logging on to www.packers.com.

As with Packers game tickets, Family Night tickets may not be used for advertising, promotion or other commercial purposes (including contests, sweepstakes and giveaways) without the Packers' express written consent.

Parking for the evening will be $5, with net proceeds going to the Green Bay Packers Foundation to be dispersed to area and state charities through its annual grant program.

The event will be televised in Green Bay on WLUK-TV Fox 11, as well as throughout the state of Wisconsin on associated stations, beginning at 6 p.m. with special, pre-scrimmage programming. The telecast will be hosted by Drew Smith and other members of the Fox 11 sports and news staffs.
