Milwaukee Brewers buy Girl Scout cookies from Oconomowoc girl

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- Girl Scouts often sell their cookies at workplaces, outside stores and at your front door, but one Oconomowoc girl came up with a very unique way to sell her cookies.

6-year-old Claire Henke's business is booming thanks to an unlikely client -- the Brewers!


This year it may not just be peanuts and cracker jacks at the ballpark. Brewers players have bought over 100 boxes from the daisy scout.

"Claire started selling door to door Girl Scout Cookes. She probably went out for half an hour or so and that wasn't quite her thing," said Erik Henke, Claire's dad.

After that, Claire worked with her dad to make a video she tweeted to the Brewers and multiple players.

Claire said she practiced a few times, and just hours after the tweet, there were some replies.

Brett Phillips, Keon Broxton, Steven Vogt, Brent Suter, Eric Sogard, and Corbin Burnes all tweeted back ... and bought multiple boxes.

"I got the message over Twitter and who doesn't love Girl Scout Cookies?" said Burnes.

Burnes says he bought peanut butter patties, caramel delites, and claire's favorite, thin mints and will enjoy them with his girlfriend.

Burnes says he and other players love to interact with and support their fans. He also had a message for Claire and other brew crew supporters:

"Thank you, Claire for being such a big Brewers fan, we appreciate the support from everyone and all the Brewers fans. We're looking to have a big year and hope we can make all the Brewers fans proud!"

Since putting the video on Twitter Saturday night, Claire has sold 242 boxes.

"I believe Keon bought two of everything. I think we're up to six players. We've also had other Brewers fans or fans of Claire that bought from Florida to New York to Colorado Springs, to Phoenix."

Claire's goal is to sell more than 1,000 boxes. If you want to help her out, you can buy cookies by clicking here.
