Bergstrom Automotive will serve as presenting sponsor of the event for the third straight year. "We are extremely pleased to sponsor the Brett Favre Celebrity Softball Game once again this year," said John Bergstrom, CEO of Bergstrom Automotive. "The time Brett and the other players commit to this event makes a significant difference to needy children in our community."
"This event is an excellent way for the team to get together and have some fun, while providing entertainment for our loyal fans and raise significant dollars for local charities," said Brett Favre, president of the Brett Favre Forward Foundation and quarterback of the Green Bay Packers. "I would like to thank Bergstrom Automotive for their support of this event and hope everyone will come out and fill the stands for the game."
The softball game will feature Brett Favre and the Green Bay Packers offense against the Green Bay Packers defense. Last year, in a storybook ending, Brett Favre came to the plate in the final at-bat of the game and hit a home run to give the offense a 32-31 victory over the defense in front of a sellout crowd.
