'Family Night,' set for Saturday evening, Aug. 7, will feature an intra-squad scrimmage between the Packers' offense and defense. Evening activities get underway in the stadium at 5:30 p.m., followed by on-field football drills at 6:30 and the scrimmage at approximately 7:30. The event will benefit the Wendy's Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Included in the evening's activities will be the popular Chili's "Jerseys Off Our Backs"promotion with approximately 20 jerseys - all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed scrimmage - to be given away in a random drawing, other entertainment, the Copps-Pick 'N Save Family Night Picnic and the spectacular Copps-Pick 'N Save Fireworks Show to conclude the night.
The Kemps Packers Experience returns this year. The evening will feature other activities for the younger fans, including sidewalk chalk and airbrush tattoos.
Parking for the event will be $5, with net proceeds to be donated to the Wendy's Wonderful Kids Program.
In case of inclement weather, no refunds will be issued unless all stadium activities - from 5:30 p.m. until the end of the fireworks show - are cancelled.
For fans not attending the event, WLUK-TV FOX 11 again will originate a statewide telecast. In addition to Green Bay, the event will be televised on WITI-TV in Milwaukee, WMSN-TV in Madison, WFXS-TV in Wausau and WLAX-TV in La Crosse.
