FEATURES PACKERS AARON KAMPMAN AND BOB SANDERS; REGISTRATION BEGINS NOV. 22
The second annual Packers' All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience, presented by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, will be held at Lambeau Field and the Don Hutson Center on Saturday, Dec. 16, 2006, from 1 to 3:30 p.m. The gathering is being hosted by Packers defensive end Aaron Kampman and defensive coordinator Bob Sanders.
While kids will be playing supervised interactive games in the Don Hutson Center, fathers will hear the "10 Ways to be an All Pro Dad" presentation in the Legends Club at the Lambeau Field Atrium with All Pro Dad president Mark Merrill.
Along with the presentation by Merrill, attendees will have the opportunity to hear the family experiences of both Kampman and Sanders and listen to their beliefs about the importance of setting a good example for children.
"I'm looking forward to the event," said Kampman. "It will be a great day to share stories with fathers about the joy of raising a family and my own experiences as a dad. Not enough can be said about the value of good parenting. I know we'll all go home from this event as better fathers and families."
Registration begins Wednesday, Nov. 22, and is $10 per father, which includes admission for dad and up to four kids. This event is recommended for children ages 5 and older. Registration is available online via www.AllProDad.com or by phone, toll free at 800/956-8300. Advance registration is recommended for this popular event.
"We're excited to support a program that helps build stronger relationships between fathers and their children," said Andy Barthel of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
"The Packers are a wonderful football organization," said Merrill. "We're even more excited about how much they are committed to helping Wisconsin families."
Time Warner Cable and WAPL-FM are serving as media partners for the event.
