WIN A PIECE OF THE LEGEND
Celebrating Brett Favre’s Hall of Fame Career with Commemorative Pool Cues to benefit Favre 4 Hope Foundation and Alzheimer’s Foundation of America
(GREEN BAY, WI, September) – January 12th, 2008 marked the infamous playoff game that brought the Packers back to the Conference Championship for the first time in 10 years. Although Favre had a large hand in that victory, he may have made an even larger impact the night before.
On the eve of the Packers-Seahawks playoff showdown, Favre met with local business owner and Green Bay native, Joe Pechauer. Pechauer is the President and owner of J. Pechauer Custom Cues and Quality Billiards, a small family business serving the Green Bay area and billiards players worldwide for the last 53 years. The prior year, Pechauer had an idea to team up with Favre to raise money for a good cause. Pechauer designed and created a commemorative Favre pool cue that highlighted the star’s career. This time, Favre’s signature would join Pechauer’s on the 25 cues, a unique finishing touch used to identify a J. Pechauer product.
The cue featured designs and inlays noting “The Game of His Life” against the Oakland Raiders after his father’s passing, his Superbowl win in 1996, MVP nods in ‘95, ‘96, and ’97, and (at the time) his claim as the All-time Passing Touchdown leader. These 25 cues and Brett Favre helped donate more than $40,000 to charities to date, such as Big Brother Big Sister, The Giving Tree, Breast Cancer, and many others.
There are still three pool cues left to raise money for charity. Pechauer would like to donate the proceeds to the Favre 4 Hope Foundation and the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America.
- Pechauer Custom Cues has set up a Gofundme profile where anyone can donate to these two charities. Simply go to gofundme.com and search “Favre Custom Cue Contest 4 Charity”. Each dollar donated will count as one entry into a drawing for one of the commemorative Favre cues. The Gofundme profile will open August 5th to the public. The drawing will be Oct.16th, the day Brett’s name will be unveiled on the Lambeau Field facade.
