  • Who's Better: Green Bay Packers Fans or Pittsburgh Steelers Fans?

    Posted by Corey Carter

    CALLING ALL PACKERS FANS

    The Greater Green Bay CVB has been challenged by the Pittsburgh CVB to prove we have more fans than they do. We know that Packers Fans are all over the country, and we need your help to reach out to them.

    Both CVBs (Convention & Visitors Bureaus) have put together a contest that not only counts the number of fans we have, but there's an awesome prize... (2 Packers tickets for next season's opening game, hotel and dinner). We'll draw a winner after the Super Bowl.

    The Packers Nation contest is located at www.greenbay.com. Please share this with all your friends. Help us prove that Packers Fans are the best Super Bowl fans!

      “This donation will be a tremendous help to our Community Meal Program,” said

    Terri Refsguard, Executive Director.  “James faced many challenges as he grew up,

    now it is important for him and Tamika to help people less fortunate – especially

    kids.  Our Community Meal Program served more than 103,000 meals last year, and

    noted more than a 12% increase in the number of children eating every day at the

    shelter.  The New Community Shelter is honored to be associated with James &

    Tamika, and very thankful to WIXX for their hand in helping us raise money.  I hope

    people realize how truly thoughtful James is to help us as he prepares for such a

    huge game."
