Fun Had By All at Brewers Bowl-A-Thon
Tonight, fans joined Matt Garza and his fellow teammates for the Brewers Bowl-A-Thon, a unique opportunity to pal around on the pins with Brewers players, all while helping raise money for Meta House, a nationally recognized, gender-responsive substance abuse treatment program dedicated to helping women through the progression of recovery.
The event took place at JB’s on 41 and in addition to Matt Garza, the host of the event, among those in attendance were: Scooter Gennett, Hernan Perez, Keon Broxton, Jonathan Villar, Jacob Barnes, Chase Anderson, Jimmy Nelson, Carlos Torres, Jhan Marinez, Zach Davies, Corey Knebel, Michael Blazek and Bullpen Catcher Marcus Hanel.
Keon Broxton‘s team took home first place overall at the event, while Scooter Gennett had the high score among the Brewers players with a 159 and Corey Knebel had the lowest score of a 71.
A lot of the fun was documented on our Snapchat account, so be sure to add ‘Brewers’ so you don’t miss out! We also ran a Facebook Live stream over on Facebook.
In addition, there were many items included in a silent auction to raise additional money for Meta House, including a special batting practice experience, a Jimmy Nelson autographed jersey, a Bernie’s Slide Experience and more.
Meta House has been blazing new trails in women’s substance abuse treatment since their doors opened in 1963. The agency is noted as one of the first residential treatment facilities in the country designed specifically for women. In 1988, Meta House became one of the first substance abuse treatment centers to include children in the residential setting. Meta House ends the generational cycle of addiction by healing women and strengthening families.
