Steak fry set for June 5

The ninth annual Badger-Packer Steak Fry is set for June 5 at Shopko Hall in Green Bay. In addition to Badgers and Packers coaching staffs, this year's event will also feature both a live and silent sports memorabilia auction and a raffle.<p>

Badgers coaches will spend the day with Packers coaches at Green Bay's minicamp practice, then attend the steak fry in the evening.

The event is open to the public and is sponsored by the UW Provision Company of Middleton, Wis., and the Central and Northeast Mendota Gridiron Clubs. Since the UW Provision Company underwrites the costs of the entire event, all of the dollars raised will go towards funding football scholarships for student-athletes at the University of Wisconsin.

Dinner is set for 6 p.m. with a social hour beginning at 5 p.m. The auction will start at 7 p.m. followed by the 7:30 p.m. program.

Tickets cost $100 per person ($80 is tax deductible). They can be purchased in the Green Bay Packers ticket office, the Packer Hall of Fame, or by mailing a check or money order to the Mendota Gridiron Club for $100 to: Badger/Packer Steak Fry, UW Special Events Office, Camp Randall Stadium, 1440 Monroe St., Madison, WI 53711.
