Roles were reversed Tuesday night, as Packers wives and significant others took the field in a fundraising effort against cancer.
"You're really lucky if you're not touched by cancer in some way," Emily Nelson, wife of Packers wide out Jordy says, "so we love to support our teammates and their wives and take this opportunity to support a great cause."
Many of the wives have personal connections with the disease, including Molly Crosby.
"I think cancer is personal for everyone these days," she says.
The event was hosted by Shantrell and Tramon Williams in a partnership with the American Cancer Society. While it may be the inaugural event, Williams hopes it becomes a yearly occurance.
"The first annual obviously you want to feel it out, but this is Green Bay," Tramon says. "There's no town that shows support like this town, and they continue to do it so definitely would like this to be around for a while."
The two teams practiced throughout the past week, but the game plan was still a little rough.
"I'm winging it tonight. Wherever they need me I'm going to go in there and do my best," Heaven Tenson, fiancé of Packers defensive lineman Mike Daniels says.
Organizers estimate the event raised over $15,000, and all proceeds will benefit breast cancer research, patient support, and awareness efforts.
