Photo of Appleton boy wins Packers ticket takeover


(WBAY) -- A 3-year-old Packers fan from Appleton will be featured on thousands of game tickets this season.

Laura Fischer of Appleton entered a photo of her 3-year-old son Declan in the Packers Ticket Takeover Contest. Online voters chose the photo of Declan to be printed on tickets for the Fan Appreciation game January 3.

From 9,200 entries, Packers officials narrowed it down to the top five photos, and fans were asked to go online and vote for their favorite.

They chose the photo of Declan posing as a Packers player and wearing a full-size helmet.

“One of the reasons I believe he enjoys watching the Packers so much is because it is how he continues to hold a strong connection to his ‘Dada,' who passed away in November of 2013,” Laura Fischer said. “When Declan sees himself dressed up as a Packers player on 80,000 tickets, it will give him a chance to be closer to his father and truly make his dreams come true.”

The Fischers will also receive two tickets to the Fan Appreciation game and hotel accommodations.

It will be Declan's first Packers game.
