The Brewers Wives play an important role in our team’s outreach efforts to support the community. This summer, they teamed up with Brewers Community Foundation to raise funds through a number of special events. The proceeds from the events supported the Salvation Army “Feed the Kids” Summer Lunch Program, The Next Door Foundation, Humane Society of Wisconsin, Wounded Warriors, After Breast Cancer Diagnosis (ABCD), Wisconsin Breast Cancer Show House, and the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure.
Tonight, the Brewers Wives presented a $50,000 check to Brewers Community Foundation. They thank the fans that contributed by purchasing raffle tickets, mystery bags and attending special events.
Today, another “Ice Bucket Challenge,” an initiative started to raise awareness and funds to help strike out ALS, was completed at Miller Park–this time by the Brewers Wives.
Earlier this week, Jonathan Lucroy’s wife, Sarah, completed the challenge and, in turn, passed it along to the Brewers Wives.
The Brewers Wives and Debbie Attanasio are all making personal donations to the cause and, today, a group of the Wives (along with Mark Reynolds, whose wife already did the challenge and nominated him) also completed the challenge, some with help from their husbands:
They have now passed the baton to the Pittsburgh Pirates Wives (the Brewers kick-off a three-game series against the Pirates tonight at Miller Park), and… you! That’s right, they’ve issued the challenge to ALL BREWERS FANS. So, now it is in your hands…complete the ice bucket challenge and/or donate online at ALSA.org.
Here are some stills:

The list of people from the Brewers organization who have completed the challenge is growing. Take a look at some of the previous videos:
ALS is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. ALS is also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease after the famed baseball player whose struggle with this disease and death in 1941 brought it national attention.
And recently, the disease has been gaining a LOT of attention from this Ice Bucket Challenge, started by ALS patients Pete Frates and Pat Quinn to help raise money and awareness for the disease. The challenge is quite simple: Fill up a bucket of ice water, as cold as you can get. Have someone record a video while you dump the bucket over your head. Then share on social media, issuing the challenge to three friends.
Along with members of the organization getting cold and wet for a cause, Brewers Community Foundation has also made a donation of $5,000 to ALSA Wisconsin on behalf of the Club and the Ice Bucket Challenge participants. Click here to join us in our support.
Today the Brewers Wives were in the community helping distribute lunches for the Salvation Army’s “Feed the Kids” Summer Meal Program.

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.
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!
On Saturday, August 9, when the Brewers take on the Los Angeles Dodgers at 6:10pm, the Brewers wives will be stationed at tables throughout the ballpark, selling “Mystery Bags” that each contain an autographed baseball. You could receive a ball signed by a Brewers player on the active 25-man roster, Brewers Manager Ron Roenicke, or Hall-of- Famer Bob Uecker.
The Mystery Bags are limited, so you will want to find the Brewers Wives early that evening. The bags are $40 and proceeds will support the Next Door Foundation, an early education center that works with thousands of children and families throughout Milwaukee.
Get your tickets for the August 9 game at brewers.com.
The Brewers Community Foundation is always finding creative ways to support their causes while at the same time, offering fans unique experiences. After a two-year break, the Brewers Wives “Jerseys Off Their Back” Raffle is back!
The Brewers Wives are hosting this special event that will benefit Sharp Literacy on Saturday, June 22 when the Brewers face the Atlanta Braves. Raffle tickets will be sold throughout the game for $1 and lucky winners will have the opportunity to receive a jersey off the back of a Brewers player and have that jersey autographed.
Proceeds from the raffle ticket sales will go to the Brewers Community Foundation in support of SHARP Literacy.
Brewers Wives will be walking through the stands and staffing tables throughout Miller Park selling tickets until the 4th inning. A drawing for the Jerseys Off Their Backs raffle will be held and the winning tickets will be displayed on the scoreboard in the middle of the 5th inning until the 7th inning stretch. We will also post the winning numbers here to the blog and tweet out the link so if you miss the scoreboard messaging, the winning numbers can be found here.
Fans who buy raffle tickets should look to the scoreboard at that time for the winning ticket numbers. Winning numbers will also be posted at the Brewers Community Foundation/Jersey Off Their Backs Raffle Table and at Guest Relations.
Those who see their winning number must report to Guest Relations on the Field Level by the middle of the 9th inning to claim their prize.
