Mark Your Calendar: Donald Driver Charity Softball Game Happening August 5

With OTAs behind us and training camp still far away, we're ready for any Packers-related events we can get.

We're in the longest, deadest part of the offseason right now, but there are still plenty of fun Packer-related events to look forward to a little later this summer outside of training camp.

One of these events is the second annual Donald Driver Charity Softball Game, happening at Fox Cities Stadium in Grand Chute. The event was a big success last year, and featured many former Packers and other athletes. Driver had previously hosted the annual charity softball game that now boasts the names of Davante Adams and Clay Matthews, though in his six years of headlining the event Driver did manage to avoid any facial injuries. This year it's happening on August 5 at 1:05 p.m., the day after the Family Night scrimmage, which means you can pack in a whole weekend of Packers-related family friendly fun!

Some of the names already confirmed to be in attendance at the game this year: James Jones, Nick Collins, Brady Poppinga, Jarrett Bush, Dorsey Levens, Samkon Gado (!), Terrance Murphy, Najeh Davenport, Kevin Barry and George Koonce. Other celebrities without Packers ties include former Marquette and NBA player Steve Novak, singer Gavin DeGraw, former UW basketball player Brian Butch, actor Adhir Kalyan, actress Emily Wilson and fitness trainer Jen Widerstrom.

These games are great opportunities for families to take their children out to get an up-close look at their green and gold heroes. All children who wear youth sports jerseys to the game will get a free autographed copy of Driver's children's book, "Quickie Goes to the Big Game," and will also be able to participate in a parade around the warning track before the first pitch.

It'll be a lot of fun, so if you're interested in getting a glimpse at Driver and friends while they're in town, visit www.timberrattlers.com for tickets and more information.
