It’s a summer tradition at the Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium and Davante Adams and Blake Martinez made a big announcement about the 2019 Green & Gold Charity Softball Game. 

The game, presented by Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic, is on Saturday, June 1st. 

Adams and Martinez have announced that Make-A-Wish Wisconsin, Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin and a number of youth sports organizations will be beneficiaries of the softball game. 

Feeding America Eastern Wisconsin is the largest hunger-relief organization in the state with food banks in Milwaukee and Appleton. The food bank distributes more than 27 million pounds of healthy and nutritious food to pantries across 36 eastern Wisconsin counties.

“During my time in Green Bay, I’ve seen the positive impact of Feeding America has in our community. I’m excited that this game can help give back to them and continue to help those in need,” said Green Bay Packers wide receiver Devante Adams.

Make-A-Wish helps children with illnesses get their wishes granted. In 2018, the Wisconsin chapter of Make-A-Wish granted 402 wishes. Currently, more than 350 Wisconsin children are in the process of having their life-affirming wishes granted. 

“I have seen firsthand what terminal illnesses can do to kids. Having an organization like Make-A-Wish there to bring a smile to a kids face is really special,” said Green Bay Packers inside linebacker Blake Martinez.

Individual tickets for the Green & Gold Charity Softball Game include the sponsor game at 10:00 am, the Home Run Derby at 11:00 am, and the game at 12:05 pm.  

Tickets are on sale now through the Timber Rattlers ticket office
