Will Blackmon, Ingle Martin and Tony Moll have been added to the lineup at the Green Bay Packers Draft Party, set for April 28 at the Lambeau Field Atrium.
They join Daryn Colledge, Noah Herron, Abdul Hodge, Dave Rayner and Jason Spitz. The players will participate in a question-and-answer session on stage and sign autographs for attendees via a ticketed session. Attendees will receive a ticket for one randomly assigned two-player autograph session when entering the party.
The event, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. (doors open at 10), will feature draft coverage on two large television projection screens, and the Packers' flagship radio station, Newsradio 620 WTMJ, will be on hand to provide coverage and analysis throughout the day.
Tickets for the Draft Party, priced at $25, currently are on sale at 18 Wisconsin Mills Fleet Farm locations and must be purchased in person. Children 3 and younger are free.
Two activities at the event, the raffle and the 'Packers Garage Sale,' will feature items sure to draw attendee interest. The raffle will feature items such as a full-size helmet to be signed by the Packers' 2007 No. 1 draft pick and autographed mini-helmets signed by the likes of Aaron Kampman and Nick Barnett. The 'Packers Garage Sale' will feature collector's items such as past issues of the Packers Yearbook and GameDay programs, as well as authentic jerseys from former players.
The Legends Club on the Atrium's fourth floor also will be available to provide attendees with more seating options. Two large screen television screens will show draft coverage and beverage service will be offered.
Packers GM Ted Thompson and Head Coach Mike McCarthy will address fans in attendance, and Chairman/CEO Bob Harlan and President/COO John Jones will make appearances as well to kick off the party.
The Atrium again will offer free Wi-Fi Internet access. A limited amount of tables will have power available and a charging station also will be set up for users to recharge their laptop computer batteries. Computer stations also will be available for fans to track draft information via the Web.
