Remaining Ad Time Ad - 00:00

Chippewa Falls (WQOW) – The Packers’ Tailgate Tour continued their trip around Wisconsin, as they made a stop in Chippewa falls tonight at the Leinie’s Lodge. This year president and CEO Mark Murphy, along with 6 former players made an appearance with fans.

The night benefited Chippewa River Industries, an organization that helps people with disabilities find work. All the proceeds from the tickets went towards the cause, including over six hundred, $40 packs that were sold.

It was a party full of food, music, drinks, and of course the Packers. But for the former Packers’ players, they were just happy to give back to their fans.

“It is just an absolute blast,” says former Packer linebacker Nick Barnett.  “And what we do, we raise money for charities, we visit communities, we talk to kids at schools, we got to children’s hospitals. I mean, this is an honor for us to be part of it and it’s awesome for the fans to get an opportunity to see us up close.”

This is Murphy’s 12th year participating in the tour, and for him it defines what the Packers stand for.

“To me it kind of really signifies the uniqueness of the Packer organization,” says Murphy. “You know we’re community owned, so for us giving back to the community is really part of our core mission.”

The tour wraps up tomorrow night at Lambeau Field at 7 p.m.
