AARON KAMPMAN AND BOB SANDERS TO BE ON HAND; REGISTRATION OPENS SEPT. 17
The third annual Packers All Pro Dad Father & Kids Experience will be held at the Don Hutson Center on Saturday, Oct. 13, 2007, from 1 to 4 p.m. The gathering is presented by Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and is being hosted by Packers defensive end Aaron Kampman and defensive coordinator Bob Sanders.
Founded by Family First, the All Pro Dad fatherhood program helps to educate fathers on the best ways to become an "All Pro Dad." Fathers are encouraged to bring their children to the event, where they will learn fatherhood tips and participate in special activities with their kids, while rotating through football-themed learning stations located at the Huston Center.
"I'm looking forward to another great event," said Kampman. "I can't wait to share some stories with fathers about the joy of raising a family and my own experiences as a dad. Not enough can be said about the value of good parenting. I know we'll all go home from this event as better fathers and families."
"The Packers are a world-class football organization," said Mark Merrill, All Pro Dad President. "We're very excited about how they have committed to helping Wisconsin families by hosting the 3rd annual Thrivent Financial All Pro Dad Father and Kids Experience."
Registration begins Monday, Sept. 17, and is $10 per father, which includes admission for dad and up to four kids. This event is recommended for children ages 5 and older. Register online at www.AllProDad.com, or by phone, toll free at 800/956-8300. The event is expected to sell out early, so advance registration is required.

"We are very excited to be involved in helping to build strong families in Wisconsin, the great state where our Corporate Head Quarters is located," said Andy Barthel of Thrivent Financial for Lutherans.
