Brewers hosting events to raise money for Harvey victims
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) – The Milwaukee Brewers are encouraging fans to support Hurricane Harvey relief efforts during the upcoming weekend series against the Washington Nationals at Miller Park. There are numerous ways in which fans can help contribute, including a Mystery Baseball event, the 50/50 raffle and an online auction.
The Brewers Wives will host a Mystery Bag event on Saturday, September 2, with all profits going towards the relief efforts. For a $40 donation, fans will receive a pink mystery bag, which will contain an autographed baseball by a current Brewers player, Manager Craig Counsell, Hall of Fame Broadcaster Bob Uecker, or a player from another team. Brewers Wives will be stationed throughout the ballpark selling the mystery bags until they’re sold out.
The Crew will also host an online auction from September 11-24 of an autographed bowling ball signed by the Brewers bullpen. The ball has been donated by pitcher Jimmy Nelson, who won the charity bowling event that was held earlier this year.
In addition, Brewers Community Foundation will donate all 50/50 raffle ticket sales towards Hurricane Harvey relief from the team’s Friday, Saturday and Sunday games.
