Brewers Wives to Host “Jerseys Off Their Back” Raffle at Miller Park on June 22

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.

Since 1996, SHARP Literacy has provided students with opportunities to develop a range of skills – reading, writing, oral communications, research, creating thinking and problem solving – SHARP creates a solid foundation for future learning and success. SHARP currently serves 5,000+ students in grades 1-5.

SHARP Mission: SHARP Literacy energizes urban school children to become confident, capable readers, writers and researchers, using the visual arts to engage young minds and reinforce learning.

If you are at the June 22 game, this is a great opportunity to support a worthwhile cause and have the opportunity to take home a very unique piece of memorabilia.

Celebrate Memorial Day at Miller Park

This Memorial Day make plans to bring your picnic to our park as the Brewers take on the Twins at 1:10pm.

We’ll be celebrating Military Day and the Brewers and Twins will be wearing specially designed caps and jerseys featuring an authentic military digital camouflage design licensed from the United States Marine Corps.

MLB will also conduct a moment of silence prior to all games throughout Memorial Day weekend to honor members of the military who lost their lives serving their country. On Memorial Day itself, MLB will join the National Moment of Remembrance, an initiative the league has participated in since 1997, where all games will stop for a moment at 3:00 pm local time.

The Memorial Day effort is part of MLB’s ongoing recognition of veterans, active military, and military families. MLB has committed $23 million to Welcome Back Veterans since its inception in 2008.

Welcome Back Veterans, an initiative of Major League Baseball Charities and the Robert R. McCormick Foundation, provides grants to university hospitals throughout the country that provide post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and traumatic brain injury (TBI) treatment to veterans and their families in  a public/private partnership.  Currently, Welcome Back Veterans is funding programs at Weill Cornell in New York City, The University of Michigan, Rush University Medical Center, Duke University, Emory University, UCLA and the Boston Red Sox’ Home Base Program at Mass General Hospital in Boston. These institutions are developing new programs and strategies to improve the quality, quantity and access to PTSD and TBI treatment for veterans, particularly those returning from duty in Iraq and Afghanistan.

For Monday’s game, the Brewers have also donated thousands of tickets to the USO and the Veteran’s Administration that they have distributed to veterans, active military members and their families. The pregame presentation will also feature military honor guards from a number of branches, multiple simultaneous first pitches by active military reservists and other military family members, and the national anthem will be performed by SSG Korin Saal.

Finally, you can pick up your own Brewers Memorial Day fitted cap ($45), jersey ($220), or t-shirt ($35), each featuring a special Desert Camo design. Stop by the Brewers Team Stores at Miller Park or shop online at brewers.com to purchase yours.

MLB will donate 100% of its net proceeds from sales of the caps and jerseys to Welcome Back Veterans as part of its contribution to the program.

Here’s a gallery of the various items available:

In addition to the hats, t-shirts and jerseys, the Team Stores also have special baseballs ($12), bracelets ($12), pins ($8) and koozies ($5) available.
