Brewers Community Foundation Week raises over $220,000 for club's philanthropic efforts
MILWAUKEE - Brewers Community Foundation Week, staged during the August 16-22 homestand at Miller Park, raised over $220,000 for Brewers Community Foundation's charitable outreach activities.
BCF Week featured seven days of activities at Miller Park and in the community. BCF's focused areas of interest are Health, Education, Recreation and Basic Needs, and the week's activities supported and created awareness for initiatives related to these causes.
Among the highlights of the week-long activities was an "Ultimate Auction" that offered one-of-a-kind memorabilia items and unique experiences. The auction alone raised over $24,000. In-stadium raffles and auctions also highlighted the week.
Some of the non-profit programs previously supported by the Foundation include Arts at Large, Beckum Stapleton Little League, Boys & Girls Club, COA, Felix Mantilla Little League, Girl Scouts of Milwaukee, Hunger Task Force, Make-a-Wish, Sojourner Truth House, Susan G. Komen, UPAF, United Way, YMCA, and YWCA.
Through Brewers Community Foundation, the Brewers continue with their pledge to serve as leaders in the community. Brewers Community Foundation harnesses the pride, passion and commitment of Brewers fans, players and other supporters to positively impact the lives of children and their families in Greater Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
