Mark and Debbie Attanasio, along with Brewers Community Foundation, Participate in Check Presentation to Sojourner Family Peace Center

Prior to this afternoon’s game at Miller Park, Mark and Debbie Attanasio, along with Brewers Community Foundation Executive Director Cecelia Gore, participated in an on-field check presentation to the Sojourner Family Peace Center.

Sojourner Family Peace Center is focused on transforming lives impacted by domestic violence by supporting women, children and families. Sojourner is building a new Milwaukee facility at 6th and Walnut Streets with groundbreaking planned for September. This facility is designed to support families more effectively, leverage relationships with partners to have greater impact and provide state of the art crisis housing.

Brewers Community Foundation and the Milwaukee Brewers have been long and valuable partners with Sojourner Family Peace Center and along with Debbie and Mark Attanasio, are proud to contribute $300,000 to the Sojourner Family Peace Center’s Courage Campaign to raise $26.9 million for the new facility.
