PACKERS DONATE MORE THAN $12,000 TO BOYS AND GIRLS CLUB OF GREEN BAY; PACKERS STUBHUB PROCEEDS TO BENEFIT ORGANIZATION'S EFFORTS
The Green Bay Packers Friday donated $12,074.43 to the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay.
The donation represented the team's 2004 proceeds from Packers StubHub, the ticket resale program that allows Green Bay season ticket holders to resell their 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, chief executive officer of the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay at the organization's west-side facility.
Packers StubHub was introduced near the end of the 2003 season and, after a positive reception, was used for the entire 2004 campaign. A convenient alternative to brokers and vendors, Packers StubHub 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.
"We're pleased to be able to donate this money to the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay and support its many wonderful programs for our area youth," said Jones. "Packers StubHub has been well received and is a win-win for our season ticket holders and members of Packers Partners. Through this process we're making sure more Packers fans are able to take in games at Lambeau Field and at the same time help out a great organization."
"The Green Bay Packers organization proves again and again their commitment to giving back to the community and helping children," added Carlin. "The StubHub program is a great example of how the Packers support their fans and the community. This donation will help us to provide a safe place for over 6,700 youth with a wide range of fun and educational programs. The Boys & Girls Club of Green Bay is proud to be a part of this partnership and very grateful to the Green Bay Packers."
