Need to pass along that, while every word below is true – it is, indeed, from 2009. Rodgers has not, as of yet, done any surprise Christmas gift giving to Boys and Girls Clubs or any other charitable organizations in 2010, though one could be coming in the near future for all I know.
Meaning, of course, I will have completely ruined the surprise.
Also meaning, of course, that Aaron Rodgers is now an even bigger fan of myself/CHTV. (sigh)
I’ve heard from a bunch of people in and around the Green Bay area that this did indeed happen:
Apparently a friend has a friend who is a retired teacher and who is involved with the Boys & Girls Club.
Someone from the Packer organization called this guy at the Boys & Girls Club and told them to bring 75 kids from the Boys and Girls Club to the new bowling alley in Howard and they would get soda, pizza and free bowling.
They got a second call upping the amount of kids to 100. When they all got there, there were about 15 Packers players there to visit and bowl with them.
When they were done, all the kids were each given $100 to go to Shopko for Christmas shopping, accompanied by the Packer players.
And it was all funded by Aaron Rodgers. There was no publicity, no television cameras. We are lucky to have him in Green Bay.
I can’t express how proud I am to have someone like this as the face of the Green Bay Packers.
