The Green Bay Packers’ 10th Family Night Scrimmage will be held on Saturday evening, Aug. 7, the team announced on Tuesday.
The event, featuring an offense-vs.-defense scrimmage, jersey giveaway and fireworks, will benefit the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids foster care adoption program, a signature program of the Dave Thomas Foundation for Adoption. Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m., with drills at 6:30 p.m. and the scrimmage at about 7:30 p.m.
“We’re very pleased to have a great partner, Bellin Health, join us in one of our unique training camp traditions, ‘Packers Family Night,’” Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said in a news release. “It’s exciting to welcome families into Lambeau Field for this special night of activities and to see our team gear up for the season.”
After the scrimmage, approximately 20 scrimmage-worn jerseys will be given away in a random drawing. The night concludes with fireworks.
For fans who can’t attend, the game will be aired by WLUK in Green Bay, WITI in Milwaukee, WMSN in Madison, WFXS in Wausau and WLAX in La Crosse.
The $10 tickets go on sale at 9 a.m. on Friday, June 25, through Ticketmaster and may be purchased in person at Ticketmaster outlets or at Lambeau Field, over the phone or online. There is an eight-ticket limit initially. Parking is $5, with proceeds donated to the Wendy’s Wonderful Kids Program.

In case there is inclement weather like last year, no refunds will be issued unless all stadium activities — from 5:30 p.m. until the end of the fireworks show — are canceled.
Also, the team announced the training camp will be released this week. The players are due to report on July 30, with the first practice on Saturday, July 31.
