GRAND CHUTE, Wis. -

Donald Driver says he expected to raise more than $200,000 from his charity softball game.

His "Dancing with the Stars" partner, Peta Murgatroyd, threw out the first pitch Sunday in Grand Chute. She said it was good to see in person all the support they received throughout the 15 weeks on the show.

Besides Driver, other Packers who played were quarterback Aaron Rodgers, cornerback Tramon Williams, safety Anthony Levine, center Jeff Saturday, cornerback Sam Shields, linebacker Terrell Manning and defensive end Anthony Hargrove.

The game was a sellout and it supported the Donald Driver Foundation.

As far as the game's outcome, the offense won 22-10 over the defense. Rodgers led the way with a 4-for-4 performance that included two home runs.
