BREWERS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION WEEK BEGINS MAY 12
Brewers Community Foundation (BCF) Week begins on Thursday, May 12, as the Brewers begin a seven game homestand. Returning for its seventh year, BCF Week features activities at each game through May 19 to support the Foundation’s charitable impact in the community.
Brewers Community Foundation harnesses the pride, passion and commitment of Brewers fans, players and other supporters to positively impact the lives of children and their families in the Greater Milwaukee area and Wisconsin. BCF Week and the “Ultimate Auction” highlight this initiative, and are presented by the 2016 Leadership Council, which is comprised of BMO Harris Bank, Delta Dental, Delzer Lithograph, Co., Johnson Controls, Lubar & Co., MillerCoors, Northwestern Mutual, West Bend Mutual Insurance Company and We Energies Foundation.
One of the highlights of BCF Week is the “Ultimate Auction,” which begins at Brewers.com/bcfweek this Saturday, May 7, at 9:00 a.m. CT and continues through Tuesday, May 17 at 11:59 p.m. CT. Fans will have the opportunity to bid on and win one-of-a-kind memorabilia items and unique experiences. Fifteen exclusive packages are available, including a meet & greet with Hank “the Ballpark Pup,” a trip to 2017 Fantasy Camp in Maryvale, Arizona, a chance to win Chairman and Principal Owner Mark Attanasio’s five front row seats next to the Brewers dugout and a chance for a fan and seven friends to win a personal tour of the Miller Park roof before gates open. A complete list of “Ultimate Auction” items can be found at Brewers.com/bcfweek.

This fun activity for all ages allows participants to play bingo while watching the Brewers take on the Padres. Each bingo card will have a randomized combination of the abbreviations of baseball scoring plays (HR, F-9, 6-4-3, etc). When that play occurs in the game, participants can mark off the corresponding space. Once five spaces in a row are marked off, we have a winner. The first 10 winners will receive a select Brewers prize. Just for playing, all participants will receive a collectible player pin.
All Week: Partners Raffle – Fans can enter to win a package generously donated by corporate partners of the Brewers. One lucky winner will receive a year’s supply of Miller Beer, a year’s supply of Klement’s Sausages, a year-long subscription to The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel and two round-trip Southwest Airlines vouchers. Raffle tickets are $5 each. The winner will be chosen and contacted on May 19.
Each day of the week: Plinko – For a $5 donation per drop, fans will be able to play Plinko and have the opportunity to win a prize with every drop. Prizes vary from game tickets to collectible player pins to Brewers merchandise and much more.
