For its second year in a row Delta Dental of Wisconsin teamed up with Packers Radio Network during this NFL season for Sack Plaque. For each Green Bay Packer sack during the 2015-16 season Delta Dental of Wisconsin donated $100 to our Wisconsin Seal-A-Smile program. In the month of December and through the playoff games this donation was raised to $500 per Packer sack. At the end of the season 53 sacks resulted in a $11,700 donation to Wisconsin Seal-A-Smile! A big thank you to Delta Dental of Wisconsin and Packers Radio Network. Go Pack Go!
