PACKERS STUBHUB PROCEEDS TO AID ORGANIZATION'S WORK
The Green Bay Packers Thursday donated $9,888 to the Boys & Girls Club of Green Bay.
The donation was funded by the team's 2005 proceeds from Packers StubHub, the secondary ticketing program that provides Green Bay season ticket holders the opportunity to sell their unused game tickets to members of Packers Partners, the team's official fan club.
John Jones, the Packers' executive vice president and chief operating officer, made the presentation to Erin Carlin, the Boys & Girls Club's chief executive officer, at the organization's west-side facility.
Packers StubHub was introduced near the end of the 2003 season and, after a positive reception, now has been utilized the past two years (2004-2005). A convenient alternative to brokers and vendors, the program is a seamless and secure method for ticket holders to sell their tickets to Packers Partners members, thus ensuring Packers fans are able to enjoy the Lambeau Field experience.
"The Green Bay Packers are thrilled to be able to donate these funds to the Boys & Girls Club of Green Bay," Jones said. "For the second year, proceeds from the Packers StubHub program are going to a great cause and organization with its wonderful programs for area youth. It's a win-win opportunity - our season ticket holders and members of Packers Partners ensure that more Packers fans get to Lambeau Field and a worthy group receives financial support."
"With the Packers StubHub program, the Green Bay Packers organization proves again and again its commitment to the fans and community," added Carlin. "The Boys & Girls Club of Green Bay is extremely proud to be a part of this partnership. Their generous donation is supporting a variety of positive Club programs for over 7,500 members."
