~When Greg Jennings needs to raise thousands of dollars for one of his favorite causes, Habitat for Humanity, he turns to some of his favorite people – teammates and Green Bay Packers fans.

One by one, Jennings asked his Green Bay Packers teammates to join him for his celebrity golf outing and by the time he was done, more than 40 guys were headed down I-43 to Waukesha Thursday.

“You know what, the thing about the Packers, we’re very supportive of one another,” said Jennings. “You put it out there and the guys just flock to it.

"I know Aaron is playing pretty well, but so is Mason Crosby," said Jennings. "I hit recreationally. Right now, it's not looking good. I can hit a mile, but I'm not consistent enough to even try to keep a handicap. I'm all over the place, but my best round is an 88."

¬†And that’s the best part. This doesn’t get done if the people don’t come out.”

Jennings and Milwaukee Habitat for Humanity have set the ambitious goal of raising $60,000 Friday to build a low-income family a home through the third annual celebrity golf classic at the Merrill Hills Country Club, as well as enough money to build a second Habitat home in Kalamazoo, Mich. Overall, the goal is to raise $150,000.

Among the Packers expected to attend: Aaron Rodgers, Ryan Grant, Donald Driver, Charles Woodson and Clay Matthews. Others include the Chicago Bears’ Tommie Harris and former Packers Koren Robinson and Javon Walker.
