The advisory board of the Salvation Army of Milwaukee County announced that Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame safety LeRoy Butler will serve as the honorary chair of the organization’s annual Red Kettle Campaign.
Butler will participate in a variety of Red Kettle Campaign events throughout southeastern Wisconsin, including a benefit concert on Fri., Nov. 2, at 7:30 p.m. at The Pabst Theater in Milwaukee, featuring a performance by Frank Sinatra Jr.
From a disabled youth, spending much of his childhood in leg braces, Butler went on to become the most durable defensive back in the history of the Green Bay Packers.
The Salvation Army’s relationship will include the organization being recognized on Butler’s new cookbook, with a Salvation Army logo on the back cover, and a 300-word narrative on The Salvation Army included in the book. In addition, the organization will work with Butler on its annual winter coat and toy drives.
