“BCF takes pride in working with our staff, uniformed personnel, generous fans and partners to raise money and provide resources for these nonprofit organizations,” said BCF Executive Director Cecelia Gore. “I’m proud of the support we have generated throughout this season and all of 2023. These organizations supported place the highest priority on serving our local community and state of Wisconsin, and we are proud to continue our tradition of supporting them with our outreach efforts.”
BCF partners with fans and supporters to fundraise through various initiatives, including the 50/50 Raffle at every Brewers home game, the 5K/10K Famous Racing Sausages Run/Walk, Drive for Charity, Ultimate Auction and BCF Weekends. The Leadership Council – a group of corporate partners whose vital support makes many of these initiatives possible – includes American Family Insurance, Aurora Health Care®, Baker Tilly US LLP, Delta Dental of Wisconsin, Fairway Independent Mortgage Corporation, Johnson Controls, Lubar & Co., Molson Coors, The Milwaukee Admirals, Wintrust/Town Bank, Northwestern Mutual, Potawatomi Casino | Hotel and We Energies Foundation.
A longtime fan-favorite, the 50/50 Raffle allows fans the opportunity to make a contribution to BCF while also earning a shot at winning half of that day’s proceeds. The largest winning prize for a lucky fan in 2023 was more than $38,000.
Brewers fans hit a home run in supporting BCF’s four Drive for Charity events in 2023, hosted as both drive-thru and in-ballpark collections. Fans donated non-perishable food items, new socks, pet supplies, new hats, mittens and scarves to support Friedens Food Pantry, Sojourner Peace Center, Wisconsin Humane Society and United Methodist Children’s Services of Wisconsin.
BCF harnesses the pride, passion and commitment of Brewers fans, players and other supporters to positively impact the lives of children and their families in the Greater Milwaukee area and throughout Wisconsin. Over the past decade, BCF has generated more than $55 million to support local non-profits in the areas of health, education, recreation and basic needs.
