Ryan Braun Teams Up with SURG Restaurant Group and the Froedtert Hospital Foundation
We showcased Ryan Braun’s efforts with Habitat for Humanity on the blog last week and again next week, Braun will take part in an event to help the Milwaukee community. Along with the SURG Restaurant Group and The Froedtert Hospital Foundation, Braun will help launch a new fund created to help children in the Milwaukee community in time of crisis.
The inaugural benefit will be held Wednesday, May 22, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill, 17800 W. Bluemound Rd. in Brookfield. Braun will be on hand to offer his support for the fund and to meet attendees of the event after the Brewers-Dodgers game that day at Miller Park.
The SURG Restaurant Group Fund for Children, established in April 2013, is a partnership between SURG Restaurant Group and The Froedtert Hospital Foundation. Grants from the fund will be used for the purchase of toys, videos, games and other needs for children in emergency rooms or waiting rooms at Froedtert. The fund also may be used to support the education of staff working with children at the hospital.
The SURG Restaurant Group Fund is for all children touched by crisis – those who receive services including pediatric radiation oncology, or those waiting for news about loved ones in the hospital’s family center.
“To be a part of such a great cause with the goal to help try and change the lives of our youth in a positive light are an honor and a privilege,” Braun said. “I encourage everyone to try and help us embrace this important issue so we can make a difference in our community.”
Event Details: Tickets are $100 per person, and include food stations and beverages. SURG will also be awarding prizes throughout the evening including items donated by Braun, SURG Restaurant Group and a Grand Prize weekend get away in a penthouse donated by Delton Grand Resort and Spa in the Wisconsin Dells. Braun will be in attendance to offer his support. SURG requests no autographs be solicited.
A portion of the evening’s sales will go to the “SURG Restaurant Group Fund for Children” and The Froedtert Hospital Foundation. Tickets will be available through at http://surgbenefitsfroedtert.eventbrite.com/. Space is limited, 250 tickets are available on a first come first serve basis.
This sounds like a fun event that will allow fans to meet Braun and enjoy some delicious food while giving back to a great community cause.
