Brewed for Her Event in Full Swing

Today, prior to and during the Brewers vs. Nationals 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 noon today, 1.5 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.

Brewed for Her Agenda

The event kicked off with a Fashion Show in the Gehl Club emceed by Rick Schlesinger and Sophia Minnaert from FOX Sport Wisconsin.

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. Plus, lots of other items for around the home and tailgating.

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

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. Nationals game ticket in the upscale Gehl Club at Miller Park, which included Hors d’oeuvres, an all-you-can-eat buffet and two complimentary beverages. 

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

Attendees also could stick around for the O.A.R. postgame concert–what a fun, full day!

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

Hank the Ballpark Pup Returns to His Roots

Hank, “The Ballpark Pup,” will return to his old grounds in Phoenix, Arizona, this Saturday to make an appearance at Maryvale Baseball Park. The appearance will be tied to an “adopt-a-pet” event and fundraiser for the Arizona Humane Society.

“Brewers fans and dog lovers in Arizona made it clear that they wanted to have a chance to see Hank again, and we are happy to make this a reality,” said Brewers Chief Operating Officer Rick Schlesinger. “We are very grateful to our friends at Southwest Airlines for giving Hank an opportunity to visit his old hometown and look forward to raising funds and awareness for the Arizona Humane Society.”

Hank Airport

Hank the Ballpark Pup is set to travel back to his roots in Phoenix this weekend.

 

Hank will appear at the adopt-a-pet event at Saturday’s game, and will be available for photos for approximately 30 minutes on the right field concourse immediately following the Famous Klement’s Sausage Race in the middle of the sixth inning. Fans will have an opportunity to take a photo of Hank in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Arizona Humane Society. (NOTE: Because of the heat and concern for Hank’s well-being, only a limited number of fans will be able to be accommodated).

Hank’s story started when he first appeared at camp on February 17, 2014, the day of the first workout for Brewers pitchers and catchers. That morning, he wandered up to staff at the Brewers Maryvale facility after clearly being a homeless stray for an extended period of time. Hank’s story quickly went viral, and his connection to the team became official when he found a permanent home in Milwaukee. His arrival in Milwaukee via a Southwest Airlines flight on March 16 was a celebrated event, with hundreds of fans waiting outside of security to meet Milwaukee’s most famous four-legger.

The Brewers have worked closely with the Arizona and Wisconsin Humane Societies since that first day when Hank arrived, and their collective staff members have 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 also 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 him in exchange for a voluntary donation to the Arizona Humane Society. It wasn’t long before a line of “Hank gear” (which now numbers over 30 items, from t-shirts to Bobbleheads to books) was produced and made available through Brewers retail stores. It was all for a good cause as 20% of the gross sales are donated to the “Hank Fund,” a charitable resource developed by the Wisconsin Humane Society.

In addition, Hank has appeared at photo opportunities, book signings, and numerous charitable events to also help raise money for the Fund.

Hank’s year culminated in Los Angeles as he was named “Dog of the Year” at the nationally-televised World Dog Awards.
