Behind the Scenes at the Brewers Pet Calendar Photo Shoot

Last week, we let the “cat out of the bag” that we’re creating a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the organization.

Today, we held the first photo shoot for the piece, which is due out later this season, and we thought we’d share a few fun photos with you. All photos for the calendar will be taken by Brewers photographer Scott Paulus[Note: All of the dogs at today's photo shoot are dogs that are currently up for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.]

We also held a contest for one lucky fan and his/her dog to be included in the calendar alongside Hank. Stay tuned for more details on the winner and when the finished piece will be for sale.

Cheers!

“Beyond the Diamond” Initiative Continues Today with S.C.O.R.E. for Excellence Day presented by The Gordon Flesch Company

Score_logo

The Brewers Beyond the Diamond program continued today with “S.C.O.R.E. for Excellence Day presented by The Gordon Flesch Company.”    Beyond the Diamond is a series of community outreach events that will take place throughout the season from May through August.  The program is built around a partnership with Brewers Community Foundation, which features Brewers players, coaches, wives, alumni and team staff working hands-on in the community.

Yovani Gallardo, Carlos Gomez, Alfredo Figaro and Wily Peralta visited  the over 600 energetic children at Vieau School to emphasize the importance of education.  S.C.O.R.E. is an acronym for School, Community, Opportunities, Role Models and Excellence with an emphasis toward education, interaction and life skills. During the program, players engaged students in a dialogue about the importance of these five S.C.O.R.E. elements. The program helps open communication between the students and their role models. T-shirts and game tickets will be provided, along with a $2,500 donation from Brewers Community Foundation toward academic programs.

Vieau is a bilingual school and the program for the kids was done mostly in Spanish.  The event was emceed by the Spanish play-by-play announcer for the Brewers, Andy Olivares of ESPN Deportes Milwaukee.  Figaro spoke of the importance of school while growing up in the Dominican Republic, Peralta talked about community, Gomez spoke about taking advantage of opportunities given to the youngsters and Gallardo talked about the role models in his life–his parents and teachers–and compared them to the role models in the lives of students.

Also participating in today’s event was Kurt Konicke of the Gordon Flesch Company, Vieau principal Eduardo Galvan and Dr. Gregory Thornton, Superintendent of Milwaukee Public Schools.  Special thanks go to Katina Shaw and Cecelia Gore for helping play today’s event and to Scott Paulus for the great photos.

The first event in the “Beyond the Diamond” initiative for the Brewers was a Habitat for Humanity build earlier this month.
