The "Touchdowns for Hope" gala took place in Green Bay, at the Oneida Golf and Country club.
This year, Packers fullback, John Kuhn and his wife Lindsey hosted the event. It included silent and live auctions, dinner and dancing.
The money raised will go to the House of Hope, a Green Bay shelter for women and their children.
"It's a great opportunity for us to really give back and thank the community for all the great things that they've given us - all the support they've given us - over the years," said John Kuhn.
Last year, the event raised about 100-thousand dollars.
