This year’s sellout marks the eighth time in its 14 years the event has sold all available tickets.
‘Family Night’ will feature a full practice, including 11-on-11 sessions with live contact. The evening remains family-focused and will feature a game-like atmosphere with use of the video boards, gameday music and a fireworks show at the end of the night.
Gates will open at 5:30 p.m. and the Packers’ 2013 highlight film will be playing on the video boards as fans enter the stadium. Warm-ups will begin on the field at 6:25 p.m. and team introductions will follow at 7:30 p.m. The practice will begin at 7:45 p.m. The event will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption.
Activities include the popular Chili’s “Jerseys Off Our Backs” promotion with Packers jerseys – all of which will have been worn by Packers players in the just-completed practice – to be given away in a random drawing, theCopps–Pick ‘N SaveFamily Night Picnic and the spectacular Copps–Pick ‘N Save Fireworks Show to conclude the night.
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, WLAX-TV in La Crosse and WEUX-TV in Eau Claire. Hosted by Drew Smith and other members of the Fox 11 sports and news staffs, the live broadcast will start at 7 p.m.
