Current players Elgton Jenkins, Kenny Clark and Rasheed Walker; alumni Bryan Bulaga, Mike Daniels and Alex Green to join for visits in Southern Wisconsin
The Green Bay Packers today announced plans for the ‘Packers Tailgate Tour,’ set for April 9-13, which will travel from Green Bay to Southern Wisconsin to visit with fans and thank them in person for their support.
This year, the fan-favorite Tailgate Tour will return in the same “road trip” format as last year, stopping at a variety of locations and appearing at nonprofit fundraising events each day. To allow for further opportunities for players and alumni to interact with more fans while raising money for the nonprofits, fans should note that there will once again be no formal autograph sessions.
The event will feature current and alumni Packers players, with current players Elgton Jenkins, Kenny Clark and Rasheed Walker and alumni players Bryan Bulaga, Mike Daniels and Alex Green scheduled to board the bus, along with Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy.
The Tailgate Tour will stop in Kenosha on April 9, Beloit on April 10, Platteville on April 11 and Sun Prairie on April 12 before returning to Green Bay on April 13, with a variety of surprise and planned visits to be held in each area.
Along the route, the tour group will visit schools, hospitals, businesses, retirement homes, event venues and community centers to present donations and giveaway items and visit with fans of all ages, with the goal of impacting many different communities. The Packers are working with a variety of locations and nonprofits throughout the region to coordinate visits and fundraising opportunities.
The NeighborWorks Blackhawk Region in Beloit will be hosting a fundraising event at the Eclipse Center on April 10, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. and will include food, activities, a live auction and a Q&A session with the Packers. General admission tickets are $75 and limited to the first 300 fans. For more information about the event and to purchase tickets, visit org/gbp-tour/.
The tour will take place aboard a customized Green Bay Packers-themed motor coach. In addition to stopping in the designated locations and cities, tour celebrities will make surprise stops along the way as the schedule allows.
