GRAND CHUTE, WI - Sam Dekker is coming to Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium for Strike Out Cancer Day on Tuesday, August 22. Strike Out Cancer Day is presented by McClone and Bergstrom Automotive with the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers hosting the Peoria Chiefs at 7:05pm.
Dekker, a former Wisconsin Badgers basketball star and current Los Angeles Clipper, will be available for a pre-game autograph session in the Fox Communities Credit Union Fox Club from 5:30 until 6:30pm. This opportunity is available for $25 and is limited to 100 people. The ticket for the game is separate from the ticket to this pre-game autograph session. Autographs are limited to one item per person. Attendees may also have one photograph with Dekker per person. Contact the Timber Rattlers ticket office at (920) 733-4152 to reserve your spot for this event.
Timber Rattlers players and coaches will be wearing jerseys with a University of Wisconsin theme for this game. These jerseys will be available for auction starting on Sunday, August 20 through www.TimberRattlersAuctions.com. The auction will end at 9:00pm on August 22.
Proceeds from the pre-game autograph session and the jersey auction will be donated to the Timber Rattlers Charity Fund to benefit the Children's Cancer Family Foundation of Northeast Wisconsin. The CCFF's vision is to help local families preserve their family life, when life as they know it has been turned upside down by cancer. By providing financial assistance and allowing families to find support and strength within each other, they can help them get back to their normal family life and know that they aren't alone in their journey.
Additionally, the first 1,000 fans to attend the game will receive a bobblehead of Dekker shooting the Bratzooka! courtesy of Cher-Make Sausage. The game is scheduled to start at 7:05pm. The gates to Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium will open at 5:30pm.
