Silver Lake College of the Holy Family is honored to be among a select group of organizations to be awarded grants by the Green Bay Packers Foundation, presented at a luncheon in the Lambeau Field Atrium on Tuesday, December 17th. Accepting the award on behalf of the College was President Chris E. Domes, accompanied by his wife, Mary Domes. The grant will be used for materials and equipment in the College’s music program, housed in the new Franciscan Center for Music Education and Performance, which was dedicated in early October.

In a recent press release, the Green Bay Packers Foundation announced that it had awarded $500,000 in grants to 188 civic and charitable groups throughout the state of Wisconsin. The number of recipient organizations and the total donation amount are records for the Foundation. The announcement was made by Charlie Lieb, chairman of the Foundation committee. "We’re honored to congratulate and thank this year’s recipients for their excellent work in our communities,” Packers President/CEO Mark Murphy said at the event. "Their efforts inspire us and truly provide a positive impact.”
