This past weekend Peta Murgatroyd, Derek Hough, Tristan MacManus, Chelsie Hightower, Sasha Farber, and Oksana Dmytrenko flew to Green Bay, Wisconsin to partake in Donald Driver’s 5th Annual Charity Softball Game festivities one of which included a show Sunday night.

Also, the Sheboygan Press has a slew of pictures of Dancing With The Stars Season 14 Champs, Donald and Peta, answering questions for the press and Peta throws the first pitch in the softball game. Below are just a couple of them. You can see many more in a fun gallery at the link.
Donald and Peta thanked their fans for voting for them. Peta also admitted that she’s been swept up in the “green and gold spirit”. Here is more in a take from the WAOW ABC Channel 9. Note how Donald’s team won the game.
“They had everything to do with it and I couldn’t have done it without them. I tip my hat off to the fans. Me and Peta did our part. At the end of the day, it was up to the fans to win it all,” Driver said.
His dancing partner Peta Murgatroyd says she can’t help but get swept up in the green and gold spirit.
“It’s out of this world. I haven’t seen anything like this before. It’s crazy. It feels so good to have the support of Packer Nation and Wisconsin,” Murgatroyd said.
“I knew Packer Nation would come through,” Bartz said.
Some fans say they’ve never watched Dancing with the Stars before. But because of Driver, they not only tuned in, but voted.
“When a hometown favorite wins it and brings it home, that’s huge,” Josh Marnocha from Seymour said.
Peta even threw out the first pitch, right down the middle. And as for the game? Driver can add a softball title to his trophy case. The offense took down the defense 22-10.
