BRILLION, Wis. (WFRV) – Packers and Badgers alumni showed of their skills today at an annual fundraiser. But, there was not a football in sight. 

The annual clay shoot is a major fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay. 

“There is a lot of kids whose lives are changing and are reaching their full potential it is because we have these great community members” says Stephanie Schallhorn, Marketing and Community Relations Manager for the Boys and Girls Club of Green Bay. 

25 teams made their way around the sporting clay course at Triple J Wing and Clay in Brillion. At some stations they were rubbing elbows with NFL alumni.

“At home we are businessmen, fathers, husbands. We come up here and we get to be green bay packers again” says former Packers tight end, Paul Coffman. “It is great I lost all my hair, but people still recognize me” he jokes. 

NFL and Wisconsin Badgers alum Casey Rabach is a Sturgeon Bay native. 

“There is nothing better than getting out and talking with people that may be a fan, may not be a fan. May or may not know you, but people that are charitable. I think that is a thing that everybody here has” Rabach says. 

The event typically raises more than $20,000 funding entire programs at the Boys and Girls Club. 

“That is whether or not kids get to learn how to cook, whether or not kids have a tutor. It can offer a lot of different opportunities for kids. Just because this event happens” Schallhorn says. 

According to Packers former center Frank Winters “There is a group of us that come back every year and give back. Its important to the people of Green Bay to let them know we support them as much as they support us”.
