Packers fans are invited to bring the spirit of Green Bay to Jacksonville a day early with a Packers everywhere pep rally at 6 p.m. EDT on Saturday, Sept. 10.
The festivities will take place at Blackfinn Ameripub, located at 4840 Big Island Drive Suite 05, Jacksonville.
Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy will take part in the pre-gameday excitement by greeting fans and participating in a Q-and-A session with Wayne Larrivee, the radio voice of the Packers. Packers Hall of Famers Nick Collins and LeRoy Butler will socialize with fans, sign autographs and share their thoughts on the next day's game against the Jaguars.
A roundtable discussion with Packers.com's Mike Spofford and Wes Hodkiewicz will conclude the event. Attendees at the event also will have opportunities to win autographed raffle prizes and giveaways.
The event will feature a local band, Uncommon Legends, who will perform live prior to the pep rally, from 3 to 6 p.m. Food and drink specials will be available for adults and kids, and free parking will be available at the venue.
Fans planning to attend the rally are encouraged to sign up in advance for the raffle to have a chance to win autographed Packers items such as a Julius Peppers-signed helmet, Randall Cobb-signed jersey, Eddie Lacy-signed football and other prizes.
To register for the raffle, fans should visit http://pckrs.com/peprally and be sure to have their vouchers scanned at the door to complete their raffle entry. Entrants must be present at the rally to win, and advance raffle signup does not guarantee rally admission.
