Packers fans are encouraged to go to the auction website for Head Coach Mike McCarthy's second annual "Mike and Jessica McCarthy Golf Tournament," and bid on auction items and a chance to dine and golf with Coach McCarthy.
Included among the auction items is memorabilia from the Packers' Super Bowl XLV victory: an authentic Aaron Rodgers jersey, Green Bay Packers helmet and official Super Bowl XLV football, all of which bear Rodgers' autograph, and several Super Bowl XLV memorabilia autographed by Coach McCarthy.
The tournament will be played in Madison, Wis., and will benefit American Family Children's Hospital, a comprehensive pediatric medical and surgical center treating everything from cardiology to cancer. As part of the event, the "Sponsors Dinner" will be held on Sunday evening, June 12, at Monona Terrace in Madison. The golf tournament and luncheon will take place the following day, June 13, at Bishops Bay Country Club in Madison.
"We are truly honored to host this event to assist families that depend upon the hospital for their care. We also understand the need for financial support for patient programs, family support services, specialized equipment and future facility enhancement. The proceeds from this event will assist the hospital in its mission to provide the best of care for every child and family who enters its doors," Mike McCarthy said.
"We are so grateful to Mike and Jessica McCarthy for their commitment to the American Family Children's Hospital and hosting this golf tournament and dinner. We have the great privilege of extending our thanks and appreciation to you on behalf of all of the children and family members in our care," American Family President and CEO Donna Katen-Bahensky said.
Coach McCarthy has involved himself in several other charity events, including the Mike McCarthy Celebrity Golf Open, a fundraiser for local and statewide cystic fibrosis organizations that has had a longstanding relationship with the Packers. This year's outing takes place Monday, June 6.
He has also been involved with the Cerebral Palsy Telethon, the American Heart Association, Jerry Parins' Cruise for Cancer, Make-A-Wish Foundation, the Lombardi Award of Excellence Dinner Ball, which supports the Vince Lombardi Charitable Funds in the fight against cancer, and served as host of the Green & Gold Gala, a fundraiser for Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin.
