Favre charity game June 5

Brett Favre's sixth annual celebrity softball game will take place June 5 at Fox Cities Stadium in Appleton beginning at Noon.

The softball game features Favre and the Green Bay Packers offense against the Green Bay Packers defense. All proceeds will benefit the Brett Favre Fourward Foundation, whose mission is to provide aid to disadvantaged or disabled children residing in Wisconsin and Mississippi.

The Brett Favre Fourward Foundation recently distributed more than $100,000 to local charities from last year's softball game. The Foundation was established in 1996 and is a 501(c)3 organization in which all net proceeds raised from each event benefits charities. More than $2 million has been donated between Wisconsin and Mississippi the past nine years.
