“NATIONAL BRATWURST DAY” EVENT BENEFITS FEEDING AMERICA

Bratwursts have a deep history in Wisconsin, particularly at Miller Park, and today, fans were able to celebrate National Bratwurst Day while supporting Feeding America of Eastern Wisconsin.

From 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. today at Miller Park,  Klement’s Sausage Company provided guests with a bratwurst, bag of chips and beverage in exchange for any monetary donation to Feeding America of Eastern Wisconsin.  Lunch was provided to the first 2,000 people to arrive.
