Packer fans can now have their brats and help out a good cause at the same time! Recoveron Restoration Services is hosting three more Packers pre-game tailgate parties to raise funds for the local American Red Cross. Recoveron’s tailgate fundraising goal is to raise more than $1,500.
“On a regular basis, we see firsthand the good work done by the Red Cross,” said Andy Kaye, president of Recoveron. “As a local restoration company, we work with individuals, families and businesses that have just experienced a significant disaster in their lives, including fires and floods. These tailgate parties will raise money to help the Red Cross continue to provide much needed services.”
During local – and national – disasters, the Red Cross provides basic emergency needs such as shelter, food, medications, baby formula and more. This is on top of the emotional support and health services the Red Cross provides at the scene of disasters; most of which are local fires. “With support from business like Recoveron, we are better prepared and ready to respond around the clock,” said Steve Hansen, Regional Chapter Executive for the local Red Cross. “Plus, it’s a great idea to combine a tailgate party with a fundraiser – it really makes for a festive atmosphere and helps a great cause.”
Three tailgate parties are scheduled for upcoming home games:
- Sunday, October 2, 2011 at 12:15 p.m. (3:15 p.m. game time). Bent Grass, a local bluegrass band will perform at 12:30 p.m.
- Sunday October 16, 2011 at 9:00 a.m. (Noon game time)
- Monday, November 14 at 4:00 p.m. (7:30 p.m. game time)
Entry to all tailgates parties is free, with food and beverages for a donation. All tailgate parties take place at
2036 S. Ridge Road, Green Bay (one block south of Kroll’s West) and are open to the public.

The American Red Cross shelters, feeds and provides emotional support to victims of disasters; supplies nearly half of the nation’s blood; teaches lifesaving skills; provides international humanitarian aid; and supports military members and their families. The Red Cross is a charitable organization — not a government agency — and depends on volunteers and the generosity of the American public to perform its mission.
