MILWAUKEE, WI - In partnership with West Bend, the Milwaukee Brewers are teaming up for the All Fan "BobbleHank" Bobblehead giveaway at this Saturday's 6:10 pm game against the Cincinnati Reds.
Tickets for the game are limited to standing room only.
Prior to the game, Brewers Community Foundation will present a check in the amount of $130,000 to the Wisconsin Humane Society in an on-field, pre-game ceremony which will feature Hank, the "Ballpark Pup." The donation was raised from sales of Hank, the "Ballpark Pup" merchandise items in the Brewers Team Store by Majestic, as well as donations from fans at various Hank photo appearances. Twenty percent of the retail sales from all Hank-related items benefit the Wisconsin Humane Society's "Hank Fund."
In addition, the newest Brewers mascot, a Hank-themed "walkabout," will make its debut at Saturday's game. The mascot will mingle with fans on the concourses throughout the game and at future Brewers home games.
During the game, the Wisconsin Humane Society as well as the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission (MADACC) will each have an information table located on the Field Level Concourse, and the two organizations will have adoptable dogs for fans to visit in the right field corner (also the Field Level Concourse).
During the entire three game series against the Cincinnati Reds, Brewers Community Foundation invites fans to drop off items for animal shelters during the Foundation's Drive for Charity. Items that will be collected include canned or dry puppy, dog, cat and kitten food; dog and cat toys (no stuffed toys, please); dog and cat treats; dog harnesses; cat litter; towels; and stainless steel food and water bowls. While supplies last, fans that donate an item or make a $5 contribution will receive a collectible pin featuring, Hank. Donation tables and bins will be located at the Hot Corner, the Right Field Gate, and next to the Field Level Guest Relations near the Home Plate Gate. They will be available from gate opening through the second inning.
Hank first appeared at camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers, and he immediately captured the hearts of everyone at Maryvale Baseball Park, as well as pet-lovers across the world. Stories on Hank appeared everywhere from the London Daily Mail to PEOPLE Magazine, and nearly every major national news and talk show across the United States. The Brewers have worked closely with the Wisconsin Humane Society on both the care for and events involving Hank even before the "Ballpark Pup" made his official move to Milwaukee in mid-March.
