In response to overwhelming popular demand, earlier this season we announced that we were adding a 15th all-fan giveaway to the schedule in 2014: a BobbleHank.
Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” will be featured as a ninth Bobblehead to be given away to all-fans as part of a Wisconsin Humane Society Day on Saturday, September 13 at Miller Park. The Brewers take on the Cincinnati Reds that evening at 6:10 pm.
And, we’ve got a sneak peek at an early rendering of the bobble for you here:
The “Bobblehank” game is essentially sold out. We only have limited standing room and obstructed view tickets available through Brewers.com, at the Miller Park Box Office, and by calling 414-902-4000.
A portion of the proceeds from tickets sales for that game will be donated by the Brewers to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s “Hank Fund,” a pool that benefits stray animals in their care transferred from the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission, as well as stray animals at the WHS Ozaukee and Racine Campuses. Brewers players have stepped forward and also will contribute to the fund.
The team, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Humane Society, will sponsor numerous initiatives that evening, including an Adopt-a-Pet event on the Miller Park concourse where fans can meet four-legged friends available for adoption. In addition, all weekend long fans are encouraged by Brewers Community Foundation to bring new pet supplies that will be distributed to area rescue organizations as part of the “Drive for Charity.” Items that will be collected include canned or dry puppy, cat and kitten food; dog and cat toys (no stuffed toys, please); dog and cat treats; dog harnesses; cat litter; stainless steel food and water bowls. Those donating will receive a special commemorative pin with Hank’s likeness to mark the occasion.
