Program slated for Thanksgiving Day
A Chalk Talk Luncheon with Packers Hall of Fame and Super Bowl quarterback Brett Favre will be held on Thanksgiving Day in Green Bay to benefit New London’s Rawhide Boys Ranch.
The Chalk Talk portion of the program with Brett Favre will take place at noon Thursday, Nov. 26 and last approximately 45 minutes.
In addition to the luncheon and Chalk Talk, Rawhide will also pay tribute to fellow NFL Hall of Fame and Super Bowl quarterback Bart Starr, who is recovering from the effects of a stroke he suffered in September 2014.
This third annual Chalk Talk will be hosted at the KI Convention Center located at 333 Main Street, Green Bay. A traditional Thanksgiving meal will be served as part of the event.
Tickets cost $95 plus applicable fees. They may be purchased through ticketstaronline.com or through 1-800-895-0071. Tickets can be purchased in-person at the Resch Center Box Office in Green Bay or at the UW-Green Bay Student Union Box Office.
This tribute to Bart and Cherry Starr during the Thanksgiving Day event will honor their 50-year anniversary as co-founders of Rawhide Boys Ranch.
Brett and his wife Deanna Favre share the Starrs’ passion for helping less fortunate youth. The Favres have been supporters of Rawhide for over 14 years. Proceeds from the Favre 4 Hope Foundation and the Brett Favre Charity Softball game hosted during Brett’s playing days have benefited Rawhide.
“Rawhide alumni have great memories of meeting the Favres over the years as they participated in volunteer roles with the Charity Softball Game,” Rawhide Executive Director John Solberg said. “We are thankful to Brett and Deanna Favre and their Foundation, Favre 4 Hope, which has contributed over $250,000, since 2001 to Rawhide.”
Bart Starr, Jr. will be present for the Chalk Talk. He and his family are hopeful that his father Bart Starr, Sr. and wife Cherry will be able to attend the game against the Chicago Bears later that evening.
Sponsorship packages are currently being offered for advanced sale and individual tickets will go on sale after Nov. 2. For more information or to inquire about sponsoring a table, call 888-745-7444 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
