Public invited to TDS kickoff event featuring pets and Packers

Brookfield, Wisconsin – TDS Telecommunications LLC (TDS®) is excited to mark construction of its high-speed, all-fiber internet network with an event that raises money for the Elmbrook Humane Society and includes major Green Bay Packers giveaways for attendees.

The event will be held from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 18, at the Brookfield Civic Plaza, 2000 N. Calhoun Road. A brief program will be held at 5 p.m. featuring leaders from TDS, the Humane Society, Brookfield Chamber of Commerce, and community leaders, followed by a check presentation to the Humane Society.

TDS’ kickoff event will have a decidedly Packers theme: anyone who attends can enter to win tickets to a Green Bay Packers game and tours of Lambeau Field and the Packers Hall of Fame. Plus, attendees can meet and get a photo with former Green Bay Packer Gary Ellerson.

Attendees are encouraged to bring their pets; TDS will provide Packers-themed bandanas for animals, and if you dress your furry friend in their finest Packers gear, you could win a prize for the best-dressed pet! Pets must be on a leash.

TDS’ project will bring all-fiber internet with speeds up to 2Gig for residents and 10Gig dedicated connections for businesses. It’s one of two TDS projects in Waukesha County, as the Wisconsin-based company is also building a fiber internet network in New Berlin.
