August 14 marked an exciting night in northeast Wisconsin as fifteen BBBS agencies came together to cheer on their favorite NFL team in the first pre-season game of 2021!
Packers Give Back reached out to BBBSNEW in June of 2021, with a generous donation of 1,000 tickets for BBBS matches to attend the Packer party of the year. Complete with a pre-game tailgate party and a BBBS-dedicated section at the game, the event was one to remember for many Bigs and Littles. Matches from all across the state were bussed in to be able to cheer on their team and represent their agency. Prior to heading in to Lambeau Field, Bigs and Littles were treated to a delicious, catered dinner by Margherita’s and had the opportunity to meet other matches from all across Wisconsin. Wearing their Packers Give Back t-shirts, matches then made their way into the stadium to enjoy an unforgettable evening of football.
Sarah Kubiak, BBBSNEW coordinator for the event, commented, “This was an amazing opportunity for so many of our matches. Not only did they get to attend the event for free, but being at a NFL game is a dream come true for so many BBBS Littles. Attending with their Big was just the icing on the cake!”
BBBSNEW wants to extend a huge “Thank You” to the Green Bay Packers and Packers Give Back for this amazing opportunity. The only thing left to say is GO, PACK, GO!
