Packers, Catholic Charities team up for the 57th annual Bishops’ Charity Game

Local News

The Packers will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles for the 57th annual Bishop’s Charities Game.

The game raises money for Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Green Bay.

Over the years the game has raised well over $3.5 million dollars for charities associated with the Diocese.

The charitable contest started back in 1961 when the Diocese brought the idea to Vince Lombardi.

Since then, the Packers organization has continued to make annual contributions to support those in need in the Green Bay community.

The game will begin at 7 p.m. This will be the 16th time Green Bay and Philadelphia have met during the preseason.

The last time the two teams met was during the regular season last year, which ended in a 27-13 Packers victory at Philadelphia.

And for the first game of the season, fans are reminded to follow the standard carry-in policies for Lambeau Field.

No bags or purses will be allowed inside the stadium.

Any bags taken into the stadium must be clear and plastic, and must be no larger than 12 by six inches.

Fans should also be prepared to use the metal detectors at each entrance.
