BREWERS POSTGAME CONCERT SERIES PRESENTED BY MILLER LITE SET FOR 2015

In addition to 20 All-Fan Giveaways announced earlier this week, today we added another benefit to enhance the Miller Park experience for Brewers fans in 2015. The Brewers Postgame Concert Series Presented by Miller Lite will debut during the 2015 season, and will feature concerts performed by three nationally-acclaimed touring acts following three weekend games at Miller Park.

MB-15 Postgame Concert Series Logo-Texture

The schedule includes concerts after the Friday, May 29 game vs. the Arizona Diamondbacks; the Saturday, June 13 contest against the Washington Nationals and the Saturday, August 15 game against the Philadelphia Phillies.

“We survey our fans often, and one idea that is frequently referenced is the creation of a concert series following games,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “Miller Park is a great option for major concerts, so we know this will be terrific added value for Brewers fans in 2015.”

All fans who purchase tickets to one of the three games will automatically have access to that night’s free postgame concert. Single game tickets will be priced according to the Brewers demand-based pricing model, and will be available when 2015 single game tickets go on sale.

Further information regarding the artists that will perform in the inaugural series, plus a special, limited offer for holiday shoppers, will be announced later this month.

Season ticket packages including the three postgame concerts, Opening Day and all 20 of the All-Fan Giveaways are on-sale now. For additional ticket and other info, fans can call (414) 902-4000 or visit Brewers.com.

RECAP: #20in15 All-Fan Giveaways Reveal

Did you follow along with our Brewers #20in15 All-Fan Giveaways reveal last week?

AllFans-Recap_Main

In case you missed it, in 2015, we have slated a team-record 20 All-Fan Giveaway dates throughout the season.

There are 10 Sundays when every fan in attendance will receive a bobblehead featuring different Brewers personnel, two Sundays when all fans in attendance will receive Brewers gnomes for the first time ever, seven T-Shirt Friday dates (and you get to help choose the designs!) and one date where you will help determine the giveaway.

“Through surveys and various feedback forums, we know that our ‘All Fan Giveaways’ are one of the most popular added values that we offer at Miller Park,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “With that in mind, we are excited to be presenting a team-record 20 of these dates in 2015, which include not only Bobbleheads and t-shirts, but also the new Gnome items.”

In case you missed it, the #20in15 All-Fan Giveaways lineup is as follows:

Sunday, April 12: Rob Deer Bobblehead

The All Fan Giveaways start with the Rob Deer Bobblehead presented by Toyota on April 12 when the Brewers host the Pittsburgh Pirates at 1:10 p.m. This is the first Bobblehead for the former Brewers great, who spent five seasons with the Club and hit 137 home runs, while racking up 385 RBI.

Sunday, April 26: Wily Peralta Bobblehead

All fans in attendance for the April 26, 1:10 p.m. game against the St. Louis Cardinals will receive a Wily Peralta Bobblehead, presented by U.S. Cellular. The Brewers 2014 Most Valuable Pitcher of the Year, this will be the first-ever Bobblehead of Perralta. Peralta notched career-highs with 17 wins and 154 strikeouts, which also led the team.

Sunday, May 10: Special Mother’s Day BobbleHank

Helping celebrate Mother’s Day, “Hank the Ballpark Pup” will receive his second Bobblehead on May 10, when the Brewers host the Chicago Cubs at 1:10 p.m. Hank will be adorned in pink in honor of the holiday.

Sunday, May 31: Commissioner Allan H. “Bud” Selig Bobblehead 

To commemorate his upcoming retirement, Commissioner Bud Selig will be recognized with a Bobblehead on May 31 when Milwaukee takes on the Arizona Diamondbacks at 1:10 p.m.  Earlier this year, the team announced that they will retire uniform number one in 2015, in honor of Selig for his commitment to keep Major League Baseball in Milwaukee.

Sunday, June 14: Carlos Gomez All-Star Bobblehead

On June 14, all fans who attend the 1:10 p.m. game against the Washington Nationals will receive a Carlos Gomez Bobblehead. Gomez will be dressed in his 2014 National League All-Star jersey, celebrating his second consecutive All-Star nod.

Sunday, June 28: Paul Molitor Bobblehead

On June 28, former Brewers great Paul Molitor will have his Bobblehead day. The Hall of Famer played 15 seasons in a Brewers uniform and appeared in over 1,800 games.

Sunday, July 19: Khris Davis Bobblehead

The next month on July 19, outfielder Khris Davis, who belted 22 homers in 2014, will be recognized with a Bobblehead giveaway as the Brewers host the Pirates

Sunday, August 2: Matt Garza Gnome

The Brewers will introduce a new promotion for the 1:10 p.m., August 2 game against the Chicago Cubs as all fans in attendance will receive a Matt Garza Gnome. This will mark the first of two gnomes that will be given away in 2015.

Sunday, August 9: Bob Uecker Bobblehead

To recognize his 60th year in baseball, the Hall of Fame broadcaster Bob Uecker will have a Bobblehead day on August 9 when the Brewers host the St. Louis Cardinals at 1:10 p.m. The Bobblehead will be modeled after the statue that was unveiled last year in Uecker’s favorite spot – the last row of Miller Park.

Sunday, August 16: Jonathan Lucroy Doubles Bobblehead

The Brewers will recognize catcher Jonathan Lucroy and his record-breaking season with a Bobblehead on the August 16, 1:10 p.m. game against the Phillies. Lucroy finished the 2014 season with 53 doubles and 46 as a catcher. His 53 doubles matched a Brewers team record, while his 46 as a catcher set a new Major League record.

Sunday, August 30: Retro Vintage Brewer Bobblehead

The Brewers will once again give away a “Vintage Brewers Bobblehead” on August 30 when the team takes on the Cincinnati Reds at 1:10 p.m.  The Bobblehead is a nod to the past as it will be a replica of some of the first items of this kind created nearly 50 years ago. This year’s Vintage Brewer Bobblehead will be donning a Brewers retro jersey.

Sunday, September 20: Scooter Gennett Gnome

Scooter Gennett will join Matt Garza as the second player in 2015 to be honored with a Brewers Gnome giveaway. Gennett has hit for a combined .300 average in his first two seasons with the Brewers.

Sunday, October 4: Fan Vote Item

Finally, fans will decide the “All Fan Giveaway” item to be given away at the Sunday, October 4 (1:10 p.m.) season finale against the Chicago Cubs. An online vote will be conducted later to determine the giveaway.

For the second year in a row, “T-shirt Fridays” will return to Miller Park for 2015. On Friday home games during the months of June, July and August (June 12, June 26, July 17, July 31, August 7, August 14 and August 28), all-fans will receive a Brewers T-shirt. New this season, fans will have the opportunity to choose each of the seven T-shirt designs to be given away this season.

Beginning in January, several different T-shirt designs will be displayed at Brewers.com. Fans will have the opportunity to vote for their favorite designs, with the top seven winners being selected for “T-shirt Fridays.”  The seven winners will be unveiled at Brewers On Deck on Sunday, January 25.

While individual tickets won’t go on sale until early next year, you can still lock in your favorite giveaways with Season Ticket Packages.

The complete promotional schedule for the 2015 season will be announced at a later date. For more information about All-Fan Giveaways and information on various ticket plans, fans are encouraged to visit Brewers.com/allfans.

Stay tuned for more details on the fan voting for the T-Shirt Fridays and the final All-Fan Giveaway of 2015.

BREWERS COMMUNITY FOUNDATION AND THE MILWAUKEE BREWERS REACH $4 MILLION IN FUNDRAISING FOR 2014  

Brewers Community Foundation along with the Milwaukee Brewers have eclipsed $4 million in fundraising during 2014, with support coming from Brewers ownership, community relations department, fans, players, wives and sponsors, and special events throughout the year.

Over the past five years, Brewers Community Foundation has generated more than $15 million to support local nonprofit organizations benefiting health, education, recreation and basic needs.

“We are very appreciative of the wide range of support that we receive from fans, players and others,” said Brewers Community Foundation Executive Director Cecelia Gore.  “The critical issues we impact support efforts to improve the quality of life in our community.”

Several events and initiatives that aided Brewers Community Foundation throughout the year included:

-          Brewers Community Foundation Week

-          Game Day 50/50 Raffle

-          An Evening with Hank Aaron

-          Brewers Mini-Marathon & 10K, Presented by Sendik’s

-          5K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk

Brewers Community Foundation Week was a major success for the foundation’s fundraising goals.  BCF, along with the Leadership Council, raffled off player jerseys, hosted a scavenger hunt, held a carnival night and hosted an auction of unique Brewers-themed items to help build up the proceeds.  The Leadership Council is comprised of 10 corporate partners, including BMO Harris Bank, Delta Dental, Delzer Printing, Johnson Controls, Kapco, Lubar & Co., MillerCoors, Northwestern Mutual, West Bend Mutual Insurance Company and We Energies Foundation.

Another significant factor was the 50/50 raffle presented by Northwestern Mutual.  In comparison to last year, the raffle saw an increase of more than $600,000, totaling over $2.25 million in revenue in 2014.  In addition to the raffle, the Brewers Mini-Marathon & 10K, Presented by Sendik’s contributed significant donations to the MACC Fund.

Brewers Community Foundation benefitted many local organizations through their fundraising efforts. Youth organizations such as Restoring Baseball in Inner Cities (RBI), Beckum Stapleton Little League, Felix Mantilla Little League, Journey House and La Liga Cristiana all received grants from Brewers Community Foundation.  The Boys and Girls Club Milwaukee Chapter and the Sojourner Family Peace Center were beneficiaries of these philanthropic efforts.  In addition, 17 students received scholarships toward higher education in Wisconsin.

Through the Foundation, Mark and Debbie Attanasio continue their pledge to serve as leaders 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 Greater Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
