Goals for Military
In 2014, Gamblers head coach Pat Mikesch started the "Goals for the Military" campaign. For each goal scored by the Gamblers on Military Appreciation Night, Mikesch donated $100 to the DAV. Along with Mikesch, multiple businesses and individuals took part.
The promotion has continued to grow and on Saturday each goal the Gamblers score, $2,600 will be donated to the DAV Transportation Program. Businesses, individuals and media partners taking part in "Goals for the Military" include;
Allegra Printing, Aurora BayCare, Belmark, Buffalo Wild Wings, C.A. Lawton Company, Capital Equipment, C & C Custom Builders, Comfort Control, Conger Industries, CP Leasing, Culver's, Diamonds & Gold, Disabled American Veterans, Jeff & Ginny Dowd, Exhaust Pro's, Fox Communities Credit Union, Green Bay Packers, Scott Jewitt Family, Jones Sign, Kaminski Dental, Kia Dorsch Ford, Menominee Casino Resort, Mid State Supply, Pat Mikesch Family, Murphy's Irish Pub, O'Neil Law Offices, Packerland Heating & Cooling, Dan Parsley, Pearly Gates, PMI Board of Directors, Pure Water Technology, Pizza Ranch, Replay Sports Bar, Royal Custom Plastics, S & L Motors, Saranac Glove, Schneider National, Screamin Head Buzz, Julie Sigmund in memory of Patrick Sigmund, SportClips, Tom Vandersteen, Van Rite & Father Vietnam Veterans of America, Wild West Studios, Mitch Woesner, WPS Health Insurance, Young Smiles Pediatric Dental, The Fan, WAPL, WFRV, WIXX, WZOR and Y-100.
Over the past six years, Military Appreciation Night has raised $118,000 all of which has stayed right here in Northeast Wisconsin to help our veterans. In 2017, the game raised $35,000 for the DAV, enough to purchase a new transport van.

Both helmets and jerseys will be auctioned off after the game with all proceeds benefiting the DAV Transportation Program.
