Levi's Challenge Event a Huge Success with help from Packers Don Barclay and Jerron McMillian:

Levi Biestle is a 3 1/2 yr old young boy who was involved in a tragic lawn tractor accident. He has had 11 surgeries and three toes and part of a foot amputated. More surgeries will be needed, as will be money to help pay for these medical expenses.  (To read about this in more detail, visit levischallenge.com

This past Saturday, Packers players Don Barclay, Jerron McMillian and a host of volunteers and local businesses got together to donate their time, money, services and raffle items in a concerted effort to raise money for this young Wisconsinite.

The Newburgh Fire department hosted the event, spearheaded by Wayne Sargent and Steve Tate of the "Ultimate Packer Fan Connection." There were raffles, auctions, food and beverage sales with all proceeds going to the cause.

LS Limo of Appleton provided free transportation for the players. Mayfield Sports Marketing donated items for the raffles and auctions. Too many others to mention were volunteers that helped run the day-long event.

News of the event was spread via social media by the players, fans and members of the Packers Talk Radio Network and Mayfield Sports Marketing.

But of course, the biggest draw were the appearances by Packers' players Don Barclay and Jerron McMillian, who both cleared time in their schedules to be there to support the fund raising event.

The players signed items that were then auctioned or raffled off. All event attendees received free autographs from the players, but were encouraged to make a donation if they were able to.

In all, it was a huge success; the day's events raised close to $30,000 to help Levi and his family with the medical expenses they face.

Many thanks go to all involved, but it was the appearance of the Packers' players that brought in the masses.  If you want to make your next event a major success, please fill out our contact form and we'll be happy to discuss with you how we can help.

 

Everyone joys seeing their name in the newspaper. We are excited and humbled to be featured recently in the Waukesha Freeman and Oconomowoc Enterprise. http://www.gmtoday.com/news/business/front/topstory87.asp

Oconomowoc Enterprise Features Mayfield Sports Marketing:

 

Sports marketing business moving into high gear Oconomowoc owner works to bring Packers, others to the area

OCONOMOWOC - It’s been a year since Mark Mayfield left the security of a full-time job to work at getting his own sports marketing business off the ground. And in those 12 months, his expectations have been exceeded only by the level of interest from the groups he’s helped and the players he’s booked.

Nonprofit organizations are usually assured of raising more money at fundraisers if they have a celebrity in attendance. And large associations usually have higher attendance at conferences if the keynote speaker is a professional athlete.

“I am essentially a booking agency for professional athletes,” said Oconomowoc’s Mark Mayfield, owner of Mayfield Sports Marketing. “I need to make sure it’s a good fit for them (the group and the athlete). Mayfield Sports represents the best interests of the player.”

Rates for appearances by current and former Brewers or Packers range from $1,000 to $30,000 for a 90-minute appearance. Signing of autographs and a photo session can either be with an extra fee or built into the base price.

 

Strong, personal relationships

Mayfield has a direct relationship with the players or their agents, so when booking them, the response time is much faster than if a business or organization tries to book them alone.

Recent bookings have included current Green Bay Packers Dujuan Harris, Nick Perry, Jerron McMillian, Eddie Lacy, Johnathan Franklin, Datone Jones, Micah Hyde, Don Barclay, Josh Sitton, Bryan Bulaga, Chris Banjo, Jerel Worthy, Mike Daniels, John Kuhn, Sam Shields and Morgan Burnett; former Packers Gilbert Brown, William Henderson, Dorsey Levens, Santana Dotson, Mark Tauscher, Dave Robinson and Ahman Green; Packers President Mark Murphy; billiards world champion Allison Fisher; Olympic and World Champion gymnast Chellsie Memmel; and former Wisconsin Badger and New York Giants player Ron Dayne.

“Usually an association will call and either be very specific about a particular player they want or be very vague and say they just want a current member of the Packers,” Mayfield said. “I ask a bunch of questions to better figure out what they want - a celebrity appearance, autographs, a motivational speaker or whatever. I’m always very honest with the client. You get what you want, but we can guide you in the selection. I generally give the client a menu of options.”

Mayfield makes a point of being at nearly every one of the events for which he books a player or former player. Part of the reason for this is to oversee that everything goes as planned, but it’s also good business. The player becomes more familiar with him, which can lead to more bookings, and the organization meets him, which also can lead to bookings for future events.

About half of the bookings Mayfield sets up are in the Green Bay and Appleton areas, simply by default of being closer to the Packers. But, there are others in the Madison and Milwaukee areas. Waukesha Sports uses him quite often to help bring in players.

The Wisconsin American Legion Foundation’s second annual A Salute to Wisconsin’s Warriors golf event was held Sept. 11 in Madison. From left, are Mark Mayfield, former Milwaukee Brewer Jim Gantner, Brig. Gen. Mark E. Anderson, former Olympic gymnast Chelsie Memmel, former Green Bay Packer Gilbert Brown and Wisconsin American Legion Adjutant David Kurtz. Submitted photo

“We have at least two signings every month,” said Robb Dobbratz, owner of Waukesha Sports. “He’s got a good relationship with a lot of players. He’s an up and coming guy, and he’s going to grow.”

Dobbratz also uses Mayfield to book players at autograph sessions in Green Bay.

The next big signing at Waukesha Sports will be from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. Oct. 1, when current Packers Lacy, Perry and McMillian will be on hand. The latter two were booked by Mayfield.

A chance encounter

Mayfield’s business started a few years ago when he was an employee at Olympia Resort in Oconomowoc, and Gilbert Brown was there for a few days for a promotional event. After talking a few times over the next five days, Brown paid Mayfield to design a website for him.

“That’s where it started,” Mayfield said. “Now I talk to Gilbert three or four times every week.”

A lot of Mayfield’s business among current players is through word of mouth. When he has an inquiry about a player he’s not worked with before, Mayfield first calls one of his current clients for an introduction. It doesn’t take long after that to sign a deal.

“For me, it’s all about people, communicating with people,” he said. “I’m always very clear with them. I don’t leave any gray areas. I don’t want to let the client down.

“Gilbert Brown trained me on that. If he shakes your hand and says he’ll do something, he’ll do it. I want to be that same way.”

He said he’s glad he had the presence and the confidence to talk to Brown at the beginning. That chance meeting sparked his new career.

“It’s very rewarding, because I earned it,” he said. “It’s very humbling. I had some help along the way, but I’ve worked very hard to be where I am today.”

Packers 49ers:  Keys to the Game

By Jason Perone
Packers 49ers: Colin Kaepernick ran for a quarterback-record 181 yards against the Packers in the playoffs.

Packers 49ers

Colin Kaepernick ran for a quarterback-record 181 yards against the Packers in the playoffs.

Well, Green Bay Packers fans, game day is almost here!  The last time the Packers played in a meaningful game, it was in San Francisco and against the 49ers.  It’s only fitting that Green Bay returns to the scene and really test how much this year’s team has improved.

Both teams have undergone changes since that last matchup.  The Packers have gotten a bit younger and added more to their defensive front in that of first round pick Datone Jones and with the return of veteran Johnny Jolly.  They also added another potential diamond in the rough at cornerback in that of fifth-rounder Micah Hyde.  With Casey Hayward ruled out for this week’s game, Hyde could see some spot duty at defensive back.

The 49ers are without stud receiver Michael Crabtree (torn Achilles) and will rely on newly-acquired veteran Anquan Boldin, to fill in.  San Francisco also lost a key piece of their secondary with hard-hitting safety Dashon Goldson moving on to Tampa Bay in free agency.  They looked to veteran cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha and rookie Eric Reid to fill that void.

With all of those changes, let’s look at some of the key factors that will play a role in the outcome of Sunday’s game.

No Burnett means Jerron McMillian, Green Bay Packers safety gets first start.

By Rob Demovsky | ESPN.com
SAN FRANCISCO -- All summer long, M.D. Jennings and Jerron McMillian waged a close competition to start at free safety next to strong safety Morgan Burnett.
In fact, the Green Bay Packers never actually declared a winner between the two.
It’s a moot point now because both will start against the San Francisco 49ers after Burnett’s recurrence of a hamstring injury landed him on the inactive list.
Burnett played every defensive snap for the Packers last season. He pulled his hamstring in the Aug. 23 preseason game against Seattle. He missed the preseason finale at Kansas City but returned to practice last week only to reinjure his hamstring late in the week. He was listed as questionable.
Linebacker Brad Jones, who also was listed as questionable because of a hamstring injury, is active and will start.
Here’s the Packers’ full inactive list:
