An upcoming event in Rockford with a former Green Bay Packer will help benefit the community.
Proceeds from an Ahman Green Foundation event will help PAWS, a Rockford Humane Society that relies solely on donations. Proceeds will also go toward creating care packages for Rockford patients who are battling cancer and other life threatening illnesses in local hospitals and cancer centers.
Ahman Green's foundation event will take place Thursday, Sept. 25 at Cliffbreakers Riverside Resort in Rockford.
The former Packers running back and Green Bay Hall of Famer will kick off his second annual Ahman Green VIP Party. The event includes food, drinks, 50/50 raffles and silent auctions.
General admission tickets to meet Green and help the community in the process are $30. You can buy tickets at www.pawshs.org.
The Ahman Green Foundation will also have a softball tournament Saturday, Sept. 27 at Forest Hills Diamonds. This event will also go toward benefiting local cancer patients and PAWS animal shelter. Visit www.ahmangreenfoundation.org for more information.
