Another Record Year at the 2016 Green & Gold Gala

Family Services of Northeast Wisconsin, in partnership with the Green Bay Packers, held its 28th Annual Green & Gold Gala on the evening of Saturday, September 24th at the Lambeau Field Atrium in Green Bay. This year’s event raised record proceeds of $288,782, which will be used to fund Family Services programs that keep homeless youth safe, provide a healing place for abused children, and help high-risk families with young children succeed.


We had nearly 700 guests in attendance, including 42 Packers alumni. Guests enjoyed great food, a silent and live auction, raffles, and, back for another year... an Alumni Panel discussion featuring four well known Packer greats: Carroll Dale (1965-72), Boyd Dowler (1959-69), Marv Fleming (1963-69), and Jim Grabowski (1966-70), with Larry McCarren (1966-70) as the moderator.

A brief program featured the work and mission of Family Services, while also awarding Janet and Charlie Lieb with the Cherish the Child award for their outstanding contributions to kids and families in our communities. We also honored the memory of Irene "Billie" Kress by renaming our leadership award to the Irene "Billie" Kress Community Impact award. Her incredible dedication to Family Services and its programs has left a resounding effect on our organization and the people we serve.


Thank you to all of our sponsors, donors, volunteers, and guests that helped make the event a great success!
