Following Monday's organized team activity practice, members of the Green Bay Packers will travel to Milwaukee to face members of the Milwaukee Brewers in a ping pong challenge for charity. 

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb won the inaugural event in 2014. Cobb will be back this year along with fellow wide receiver Ty Montgomery, and all-time leading rusher Ahman Green. 

Brewers left fielder Ryan Braun developed the event along with SURG Restaurant Group President and co-owner, Omar Shaikh. Braun won the event in 2015, defeating Cobb in the finals. Expected to join Braun this year are teammates Jeremy Jeffress, Will Smith, and Jonathan Lucroy. 

The tournament, hosted at SURG on the Water in Milwaukee's Third Ward, will benefit The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Milwaukee.

For the third straight year Greg Matzek will be the emcee of the event along Maxim model April Rose.

Sponsors of the event include: Associated Bank, Spancrete, Kohl’s, Gruber Law Offices, Orthopedic Institute of Wisconsin, Ernst & Young, Syslogic, Johnson Controls, Hale Medical, MillerCoors and Beer Capitol.
