GRAND CHUTE, WI - The 2018 Green & Gold Charity Softball Game at Neuroscience Group Field at Fox Cities Stadium on Saturday, June 2 has picked up a presenting sponsor. Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic is the title sponsor of the contest that features Clay Matthews and Davante Adams as team captains.
"We couldn't be more excited to partner with the Green and Gold Charity Softball Game! Supporting local charities has always been a passion of ours and to do our part within the community; continuing our commitment to sustaining future generations," said Joshua Doxtator, Thornberry Creek LPGA Classic's Chief Operating Officer.
There are still general admission grass seats remaining for the game through the Wisconsin Timber Rattlers Ticket Office.
Matthews and Adams will draft their squads from their Green Bay Packers teammates to compete in a game of softball instead of the traditional Offense vs. Defense contest. There will be a sponsor game at 10:15am, a home run derby at 11:00am and the game is scheduled to begin at 12:05pm.
The rosters will be announced soon.
The main charity is Young Life, an organization for middle, high school and college students that pairs them with adults focused on the things that matter most to kids - fun, adventure and friendship, remains the main beneficiary of this softball game. Founded in 1941, Young Life has more than 3,000 staff and 30,000 volunteers reaching more than 1,000,000 kids annually. Additional charitable partners will also be beneficiaries of this year's game.
