BREWERS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION AND “KOOS FOR KIDS” TEAM UP TO DONATE OVER 350 COATS TO LOCAL STUDENTS

Brewers Community Foundation has teamed up with “Koos for Kids” to donate over 350 brand new winter coats to students at Metcalfe Elementary School. In a school assembly at 1 p.m. today (Thursday), Brewers bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel and his wife, Jill, will deliver winter jackets to students who range from pre-kindergarten through fifth grade.

“We are excited to continue our annual coat donation to local children in need,” said Brewers Community Foundation Executive Director Cecelia Gore. “This is the seventh year we are holding this event and, now more than ever, it is important that we ensure the youth in our community are able to keep warm during the cold winter months. This is just one small way we are able to help disadvantaged youth in our community.”

Earlier this year, Brewers Community Foundation provided a significant inventory of school supplies for the teachers and each student in the school through the Drive for Charity initiative. Brewers Community Foundation, along with “Koos for Kids,” are proud to provide needed resources to students that are working hard every day to achieve vital academic goals.

“Koos for Kids” was formed in 2005 and focuses on helping terminally ill and disadvantaged children in Southeast Milwaukee. The annual coat donation is just one of the several ways that the organization has helped terminally ill and disadvantaged children in the area. Including today’s donation, “Koos for Kids” has donated nearly 3,500 coats to local kids.

Many Join Jonathan Lucroy in the Fight Against Muscle Disease at the 4th Annual Wisconsin Muscle Team Gala

Last night, many fans gathered to join Jonathan Lucroy in the fight against muscle disease by attending the 4th Annual Wisconsin Muscle Team Gala  at SURG Restaurant Group’s new event space on Milwaukee Street.

The event, which featured appearances by the Brewers catcher, UFC Lightweight Champion Anthony Pettis, Pro Wrestler Sargent Slaughter, Miss Wisconsin Raeanna Johnson, hockey player Scott Ford, and others, was in support of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA),a nonprofit health agency dedicated to curing muscular dystrophy, Lou Gehrig’s Disease and other related illnesses by funding worldwide research. The Association also provides comprehensive health care, support services, advocacy and education.

Besides mixing and mingling with the celebrities, the over 350 people in attendance enjoyed craft cocktails and food pairings from SURG Restaurant Group’s best bartenders and restaurants including Carnveor, Umami Moto and Hom, and had the opportunity to bid on a variety of exciting experiences and items, including incredible sports memorabilia and a private meet and greet with Jonathan Lucroy during batting practice in silent and live auctions to benefit benefit MDA’s mission.

Joe Block and Jonathan Lucroy auctioned off a very special Brewers package to raise money for the MDA. Top: Jonathan poses with the winning bidders.

 

Events like the Wisconsin Muscle Team Gala play a crucial role in helping Wisconsin families impacted by muscular dystrophy achieve a victory in finding a cure–families, like that of 9-year-old Reagan Imhoff, a National Goodwill Ambassador for MDA, who, along with and her parents, Jenny and Joe, visited with Jonathan Lucroy at Miller Park earlier this year.

Jonathan Lucroy with Reagan at Miller Park earlier this year.

Reagan  has spinal muscular atrophy (SMA, type 2), a genetic disease affecting the part of the nervous system that controls voluntary muscle movement. Because of this progressive neuromuscular disease which is most commonly diagnosed in infancy, Reagan has never been able to crawl or walk. In addition  SMA has led to difficulty eating enough food by mouth to maintain her weight and grow, so Reagan is mainly fed through a g-j tube. Her respiratory muscles are also very weak, which makes coughing and taking deep breaths while sleeping difficulty, leading to an increased tendency for pneumonia and other problems. Scoliosis also presented complications early on for Reagan which resulted in the need for spinal surgery when she was just 4. Leg and hip pain have also been an increasing problem for her.

Despite all of these challenges, Reagan remains positive and upbeat, choosing to tell her personal story as a National Goodwill Ambassador for MDA. In this capacity, Reagan is working to help raise awareness and understanding of muscle disease and inspire support of the organization.

“MDA means hope and a brighter future, it means that one day no one will have to live with muscle disease because there will be a cure!” Reagan says.

“I enjoy helping people,” Jonathan said as he took the mic during the live auction. “I got to meet Reagan this season and she just put a smile on my face. Now let’s make some money!”

It was a pleasure to see Reagan and her family once again, as well as to meet other amazing MDA kids at this year’s event. Like Reagan, they all had amazing stories to share.

Here are some more photos from this very special night:

Thank you to the folks at the Muscle Team Gala for allowing me to be part of this special event and thank you to all those in attendance for your support to a cause that will truly make a difference to so many.
