Fond du Lac Reporter

Fond du Lac Reporter: "Salvation came to Fond du Lac wearing athletes shoes Tuesday night.

Members of the Green Bay Packers brought their tailgate tour to the city to benefit the Salvation Army's flood-depleted coffers.

Unfortunately, ticket sales fell short of the goal.

'We had hoped to sell about 650 tickets, but the actual number was around 200,' said Denise Shaffer, community development coordinator for Fond du Lac's Salvation Army.

Despite lackluster fundraising, Shafer said the non-profit took advantage of a good thing and decided to turn it into a community event. For $25, ticket holders were treated to an evening with Packer running back Brandon Jackson, wide receiver James Jones and guard/center Jason Spitz. Autographs, a question-and-answer session, food and prizes were meted out."
