Packers fans 21 years and older are invited to bring the spirit of Green Bay to Chicago a day early with a free Packers Everywhere Pep Rally on Saturday, Sept. 27, from 6 to 7 p.m. The festivities will take place at Will's Northwoods Inn, located at 3030 N. Racine Ave., Chicago.
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 alumni Mark Chmura and Don Beebe will also be at the rally to socialize with fans, sign autographs and discuss their thoughts on the next day's game against the Bears. A round-table discussion with Packers.com writers Vic Ketchman, Mike Spofford and the audience will conclude the event.
"We're thrilled to host our first pep rally this season at one of our more than 2,100 Packers Everywhere establishments," said Joan Malcheski, director of the Packers Media Group and Brand Engagement. "It gives enthusiastic fans a unique opportunity to visit with Packers alumni and Mark Murphy, as well as share their excitement to watch the Packers face the Bears. We can't wait to meet more fans who reside in Chicago."
Will's Northwoods Inn, which is known for making Packers fans and Wisconsin natives feel right at home in the middle of Chicago, will offer Miller beverages at the event. A variety of Packers prizes will also be given out, including vouchers for two other Wisconsin favorites, Johnsonville Brats and Sargento Cheese.
Packers Everywhere, through its website (packerseverywhere.com) and mobile app, enables Packers fans to find official Packers establishments around the world where they can watch games with fellow fans.
