MILWAUKEE -- Today, Harris Turer/Milwaukee Admirals and We Energies Foundation each pledged $10,000 for the Brewers Community Foundation (BCF) online 2020 Drive for Charity. The contribution comes within days of the annual Drive for Charity being staged online, due to COVID-19, and running from April 6 – 20 to support nonprofit organizations that are meeting basic needs for children and their families in Greater Milwaukee. In addition, American Family Insurance made an initial generous pledge to match contributions up to $25,000.
Drive for Charity is proudly presented by the Brewers Leadership Council: American Family Insurance, Aurora Health Care, Delta Dental of Wisconsin, Harley-Davidson, Johnson Controls, Lubar & Co., Molson Coors, the Milwaukee Admirals, Northwestern Mutual, We Energies Foundation and West Bend.
“The Milwaukee Admirals recognize the incredible need our community has at this time,” said Milwaukee Admirals CEO Harris Turer. “The one thing we all know is that our community always comes together to help those in need and the Admirals are proud to once again support this community.”
Donations will be accepted in increments of $10 or more. Participating in this drive provides another opportunity for Brewers fans to make a difference. Fans who donate will be recognized on Brewers Community Foundation’s website and on a commemorative donor wall located at the BCF kiosk inside Miller Park.
