Brewed for Her Event in Full Swing

Today, prior to and during the Brewers vs. Mets game, we are hosting a special “Brewed For Her” event in the Gehl Club at Miller Park, an event geared toward women showcasing multiple products that are sold in the Brewers Team Stores, along with fashion tips, and interactive beauty stations highlighting new Brewers hair and nail accessories.

The event began at 2:30 p.m.today, 2 hours  before gates opened to the general public. This allowed attendees to time to shop the stores, visit vendor booths, and take part in additional activities before the game began. Over 30 vendors participated in this event and attendees received a special 20% savings on merchandise purchased during the event.

The event kicked off with a Fashion Show in the Gehl Club featuring FOX Sports Wisconsin Girls and Brewers Wives--emceed Craig Counsell and Rick Schlesinger.

Gone are the days of wearing men’s t-shirts to games and ill-fitting tank tops. The Brewers Team Store is chock-full of a variety of gear to suit any woman’s taste and almost any occasion such as attending a game, working out, or just being a weekend warrior.

Here are a just a few photos of some of the offerings on display at Brewed for Her:

And, speaking of the Brewers Wives, did you know they have their own line of clothing from Majestic Threads, made with Swarovski rhinestones. A portion of the proceeds from these items goes to the Brewers Community Foundation.

Hank the Ballpark Pup was also on hand for a special meet and greet with the fans.

In addition, attendees could enjoy a beer and wine tasting and beauticians were on hand during the event to offer advice and give demonstrations–the station to have your nails painted and/or hair styled with purchased Brewers accessories was very popular.

Attendees also received a Brewers vs. Mets game ticket in the upscale Gehl Club at Miller Park, which included Hors d’oeuvres such as Roasted Chicken Crisps and Caprese Skewers; an all-you-can-eat buffet featuring a special menu that included Shrimp Scampi, a variety of salads and main courses of Prime Strip Loin, Chicken Stir Fry and Lamb Osso Buco; and two complimentary beverages.

Each attendee also left with a special Brewed for Her swag bag containing a variety of items; items varied in each bag, but  here’s a sample:

Kudos to Jill Aronoff, Chris Barlow and all of the staff that helped bring this event together. This was  the second year of the event and they really set the bar high for any events like this in the future!

All-Fan Hank Beach Towel Day Announced

With the September 13 “BobbleHank” game now limited to single seats and standing room only tickets, fans of Hank, “The Ballpark Pup,” can still get in on the fun as today we announced another promotion celebrating the team’s famous four-legger.

On Wednesday, August 6, all fans attending the Brewers versus Giants game at 7:10 pm will receive a full-size Hank Beach Towel, compliments of Meijer.

In addition, Hank (and his Hank House) will be available for a photo opportunity with the first 500 fans in line beginning when gates open that night (90 minutes before first pitch). The photo opportunity will take place on the Field Level concourse near the Right Field Gate entrance.

“Based on the fan response, the BobbleHank giveaway was easily one of our most popular promotions ever, and when the game quickly reached standing room only status, there were a lot of fans who were disappointed,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We expect that the Beach Towel giveaway will be just as popular, and with Hank appearing at both of these games, it promises to be a fun evening at Miller Park for everyone.”

Tickets for the Hank Beach Towel night and all remaining Brewers games are on sale at the Miller Park Box Office, through brewers.com, or by phone at (414-902-4000).

Hank the #BallparkPup to Make Meet & Greet Appearance at Next Tuesday’s Game

By popular demand, America’s favorite Ballpark Pup is making an encore appearance at Miller Park.

After meeting more than 700 fans for photos in a public appearance during the May 14 game, Hank, the Ballpark Pup, returns to the stage on Tuesday, June 24 as the Brewers take on the Washington Nationals at 7:10 pm.

Hank has quietly appeared at several games this year, but he has only made two public appearances at Miller Park since arriving in Milwaukee in March.

Hank’s return will come in the bottom of the 5th inning of the Brewers vs. Nationals game. For one inning, he will appear on the Field Level Concourse in the right field corner. Fans are welcome to visit and take photos of Milwaukee’s most famous pup with his very own “Hank House.”

Fans will have an opportunity to make a voluntary donation to the Wisconsin Humane Society during Hank’s appearance.

 

6/24 Update: Hundreds of fans lined up to see Hank tonight, it seems he is just as “pup”ular as ever!

New #BrewersMini +10K Fundraising Incentive: Special Brewers Mini BobbleHank!

Have you signed up to run the Brewers Mini-Marathon or 10k this year? If not, there is still time!

If you’ve already committed, we hope your training is going well!

Whether you’re participating in the race, or you’ve thought about it, but don’t have the chance or the stamina this year, you can still participate in another race–the race to wipe out childhood cancer and related blood disorders—one child at a time as the fundraising efforts for the event benefit the MACC Fund (Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer).

Over the past two years,  the Brewers Mini + 10K has raised over $145,000 for the MACC Fund by participants in this event. With your help, we can push that number even higher. 

And because incentives are helpful not only in racing, but also in fundraising, new for 2014, Brewers Enterprises has a great new one to keep you motivated:

Raise a minimum of $40 and receive a limited edition bobble head of Hank the Ballpark Pup sporting his Brewers Mini-Marathon + 10K gear!  Hank is one of the newest and most beloved members of the Brewers team after being found and adopted at Spring Training this year.


BobbleHank_frontBobbleHank_back

Hank first appeared at camp on February 17, the day of the first workout for pitchers and catchers. The Brewers have worked closely with the Arizona and Wisconsin Humane Societies since that first day, and their staff provided counsel on how best to care for Hank’s basic needs as he adjusted to his new surroundings. Hank’s circle of caregivers in Phoenix worked tirelessly to ensure that he had the best care possible until his “forever home” was determined.

Hank made frequent appearances at Spring Training games in a concourse booth, where fans lined up for an opportunity to have their photo taken with Hank in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Humane Society. Through these and other opportunities, Hank has already helped raise thousands of dollars to support the cause.

Hank arrived in Milwaukee in mid-March on a Southwest Airlines charter flight and, although he has been adopted by a staff member at the Club, he has made several appearances at Miller Park and other events. Hank merchandise (sales from which benefit the Wisconsin Humane Society) continues to fly off the shelves and tickets for a Wisconsin Humane Society Day featuring a BobbleHank giveaway are virtually sold out.

That’s one more reason why you’ll want to sign up for the race and help fundraise for this important cause.  But you’ll have to act fast. These Hank bobbleheads are limited and available to only the first 2,750 race participants who raise $40 or more.  Only one bobble head per race participant, given for raising/donating a minimum of $40.  All funds raised benefit the MACC Fund.

Individual fundraisers will also have the chance to get their name entered in a raffle for great prizes.  The top three individuals or groups will win a special prize.

Prizes include everything from autographed baseballs and a game-used bat to a trip down Bernie’s slide and a party at Helfaer Field. For a full list of prizes, click here.

If you’re running the race and have already started fundraising, that’s great! Please know your support and efforts are much appreciated We’d also like to hear from you–what’s been working? Have you tried campaign emails or letters? How about a fundraising party, teaming up with others, or getting creative? Garage sales, bake sales and car washes are some easy and fun ideas to help boost your total.

So there you have it. On Saturday, September 20, we all have two common goals–to finish the race strong and to help support this important cause.

You’re already online,so just click here to start your fundraising efforts right away!

Cheers!

BobbleHank Revealed!

In response to overwhelming popular demand, earlier this season we announced that we were adding a 15th all-fan giveaway to the schedule in 2014: a BobbleHank.

MB-14 Hank Bobble-Social

Hank, the “Ballpark Pup,” will be featured as a ninth Bobblehead to be given away to all-fans as part of a Wisconsin Humane Society Day on Saturday, September 13 at Miller Park. The Brewers take on the Cincinnati Reds that evening at 6:10 pm.

And, we’ve got a sneak peek at an early rendering of the bobble for you here:

BobbleHank

The “Bobblehank” game is essentially sold out. We only have limited standing room and obstructed view tickets available through Brewers.com, at the Miller Park Box Office, and by calling 414-902-4000.

A portion of the proceeds from tickets sales for that game will be donated by the Brewers to the Wisconsin Humane Society’s “Hank Fund,” a pool that benefits stray animals in their care transferred from the Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission, as well as stray animals at the WHS Ozaukee and Racine Campuses. Brewers players have stepped forward and also will contribute to the fund.

The team, in cooperation with the Wisconsin Humane Society, will sponsor numerous initiatives that evening, including an Adopt-a-Pet event on the Miller Park concourse where fans can meet four-legged friends available for adoption. In addition, all weekend long fans are encouraged by Brewers Community Foundation to bring new pet supplies that will be distributed to area rescue organizations as part of the “Drive for Charity.” Items that will be collected include canned or dry puppy, cat and kitten food; dog and cat toys (no stuffed toys, please); dog and cat treats; dog harnesses; cat litter; stainless steel food and water bowls. Those donating will receive a special commemorative pin with Hank’s likeness to mark the occasion.
