Through August 16, the Milwaukee Brewers will be hosting their Community Foundation Week; raising money for recreational, healthcare-related, as well as educational programs that benefit the Milwaukee-based community. Activities include(d):
- Wives Mystery Grab Bag:
The wives of Milwaukee Brewers players will be selling autographed items from their husbands and other current players in order to raise funds for the Brewers Community Fund.
- Doug & Ellen Melvin “Pink the Guy” cocktail reception:
Associated with the local affiliate of the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization, a formal cocktail reception will be held in downtown Milwaukee benefiting breast cancer research and funding. Attendants will also get the opportunity to meet current members of the Brewers family, including current players and coaches.
- Brewers Community Foundation/Koos for Kids Raffle:
Through raffle donations, the Foundation will help the Koos for Kids organization, which helps economically struggling children living in Southeastern, Wisconsin.
Kudos to the Brewers for these great community events!
