The free event at Starr's beloved Rawhide in New London will honor the Hall of Famer's legacy. The celebration will be held from 1:00 to 5:00pm and will include a youth football camp for kids, face painting, bounce houses, mini Packers Hall of Fame exhibits, food trucks and tours of Rawhide’s facility.
A program will take place from 2:30 to 4:00pm featuring Cherry and Bart Starr Jr., along with several of Starr’s former teammates and players, who will share their experiences. Commemorative shirts will also be available for purchase as a keepsake, with proceeds benefitting Rawhide.
Fans planning to attend the event are asked to register by Friday, September 6th to assist in planning the event.
The event is held in conjunction with the Packers’ annual Packers Alumni Weekend and the Packers’ home opener against the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Sept. 15, where Starr will be recognized during a halftime program and ceremony. To continue honoring Starr, the Packers will also wear a No. 15 decal on their helmets for the duration of the 2019 season.
The weekend also will begin with the Green and Gold Gala on Friday, September 13th, an annual event that benefits Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin. The Gala, held in the Lambeau Field Atrium, will include a presentation from Cherry Starr and Bart Starr, Jr., with several Packers alumni also in attendance. Tickets are available for the event and can be purchased at greengoldgala.com .
