Brewers Offer Ways for Fans to Support Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts
The Brewers announced plans Wednesday to provide fans a chance to support relief efforts in areas affected by Hurricane Harvey.
All tickets sales on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from the popular 50/50 raffle will be donated as will proceeds from a Brewers Wives mystery bag event (held on Saturday, September 2) and an online auction running for two weeks in mid-to-late-September.
The Mystery Bag event is the same as has been done before whereby for a $40 donation you receive a bag which will contain an autographed baseball. The baseball could be signed by Bob Uecker, Craig Counsell, a current Brewers player, or even a player from another team. The stations to buy the bags will be positioned around the ballpark and will remain open until they’re sold out.
As for the online auction, that begins on September 11 and runs through September 24. The item up for bid is a bowling ball autographed by members of the Brewers bullpen. More information on the auction will be released closer to when it begins.
Of course, you needn’t come to Miller Park or try to outbid hundreds of other fans to make a difference with a financial contribution. As part of the press release sent out about this, the Brewers included information on contributing directly to the American Red Cross (online at redcross.org or by phone at 1–800-RED-CROSS) or via Major League Baseball’s YouCaring site by visiting YouCaring.com/MLBSupports.
