GREAT GIFT IDEA FOR PACKERS FANS
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame is a favorite stop for Packers fans and now the Hall is offering one- and two-year passes for unlimited visits to take in all the team's rich history.
A great holiday gift for a Packers fan, passes are available for purchase through Jan. 15, 2007, at a price of $45 for a one-year pass and $70 for a two-year pass. Included with the pass is unlimited admission to the Hall of Fame, admission to special events held in the Hall and a cast pewter Hall of Fame holiday ornament. Additionally, a one-year pass comes with a voucher for a complimentary stadium tour and a two-year pass comes with three stadium tour vouchers which can be redeemed and used only by the pass holder.
"We have many repeat visitors, so the passes are something we've been working on for some time," said Steve Klegon, the Packers' director of Atrium business development. "Local fans come through the Hall of Fame many times to show it to friends and family who are in town on visits. We also have fans from out of the area that are in town regularly for business or games. This is a great way for them to visit the Hall as many times as they would like."
Interested fans are encouraged to visit the Hall of Fame's front desk to purchase a pass or receive more information. Fans may inquire by phone as well, at 920/569-7512.
The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, Inc. is a non-profit corporation independent of the Green Bay Packers that guides the Hall as a historic national sports venue and educational resource to the Green Bay community and the state of Wisconsin. The Hall raises funds through its annual induction banquet, golf outing and other events to develop new exhibits and expand its archives. Historic memorabilia donated by individuals to the Hall may qualify as tax-deductible gifts.
Originally established in 1967 as a temporary display in the concourse of the Brown County Veterans Memorial Arena, the Hall moved into its own facility in 1976 near Lambeau Field. In 2003, it was relocated to a spectacular new, 25,000-square foot facility in the Lambeau Field Atrium. The Hall of Fame is open on non-game days from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Hours may vary on game days and holidays. For more information, contact the Hall of Fame at 920/569-7512.
