H.J. Martin supports UWGB athletics through annual steak fry
H.J. Martin and Son is proud to have had a number of staff members in attendance at the annual Phoenix Packers Steak Fry, held April 19 at Lambeau Field, which raised a record $234,000 to support athletics at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.
The event supports the Phoenix Fund, the principal fund for student-athlete scholarships and program support for the Division I athletics program. Players and staff from all 16 of the university’s men’s and women’s teams, along with members of the Green Bay Packers, visited with the more than 1,000 fans in attendance.
H.J. Martin and Son contributed to several of the live auction items at the event, along with sponsoring a corporate table which was filled by employees.
“We’re proud to be a small part of a larger community where businesses step up to support local athletics and educational institutions,” says Nicole Jensky, director of marketing at H.J. Martin and Son.
The amount raised in 2016 marked a 56 percent increase over the prior year.
