During Spring Training the Minnesota Twins Wives took on the Tampa Bay Rays Wives in a Charity Softball Game to benefit the Brevard County Stoneman Douglas Victims Education Fund. The Twins Wives took home the trophy.
They say behind every man is an amazing woman... these are the women behind your favorite boys of summer... the Minnesota Twins.
The Minnesota Twins Wives Organization is a group comprised of the wives or fiancés of Minnesota Twins players and coaches. Each year the Wives Organization works on many ventures that are dedicated to helping families and children in need.
We would like to THANK all of you who participated in any of our events this year. Your generosity helped us to reach our goals.

Favorite Things Silent Auction
The Twins Wives Organization will hold their annual Favorite Things Auction in August. Items will be online through MLBAuctions beginning July 27 and will be on display at Target Field (behind the Great Clips Seats) on August 5. All net proceeds benefit the Sheridan Story. Over 200,000 children in Minnesota don't always have access to nutrition they need to learn and grow. In order to fight this damaging reality, The Sheridan Story focuses on the weekend food gap, when children aren't able to receive free and reduced meal programs at school. At the end of each school week they provide each child in the program with 4 - 5 pounds of substantive, nutritious food to take home. They work in the most discreet way to distribute the bags of food to the children in the school. Volunteers go to the child' locker and put the bag directly in the child's backpack. This is typically done during time when the students are in class and not in the hallways. Proceeds from this event will purchase much needed food items.
Come and meet the Wives are the Wine, Women and Baseball events: June 1, July 12 and August 17.
