Brewers Community Foundation Week Begins May 26; Ultimate Auction Begins Today
Brewers Community Foundation Week begins on Memorial Day – Monday, May 26, as the Brewers begin an eight-game, nine-day homestand. Now in its fifth year, BCF Week features a week of activities at Miller Park to highlight the Foundation’s charitable impact in the community.
BCF’s focused areas of interest are Health, Education, Recreation and Basic Needs, and activities throughout BCF Week raise funds to support causes in each of the four areas.
