Memorial Fund & Milwaukee Brewers Team Up to Honor First Responders
Milwaukee Brewers v. Atlanta Braves, Miller Park, 7:10 pm, September 11
Washington, DC—The Milwaukee Brewers, better known as the “Brew Crew,” are teaming up with the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund to provide all first responders (Police, Fire, EMTs, Military), civilian employees, families and friends a special night of remembrance and baseball at a reduced price. A portion of proceeds from ticket sales for the Brewers v. Braves game at Miller Park on September 11, set to begin at 7:10 pm, will benefit the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund. Additionally, the first 1,000 tickets sold come with a limited edition Memorial Fund and Brewers commemorative coin. (To purchase tickets, visit http://www.Brewers.com/LAW.)
On the anniversary of the attacks of September 11, 2001—the deadliest day in law enforcement history—Miller Park will pause to honor the service and sacrifice of six Wisconsin law enforcement officers who made the ultimate sacrifice in recent years:
Deputy Sheriff Sergio Aleman, Milwaukee County Sheriff’s Office, July 31, 2012
Patrol Officer Craig Allen Birkholz, Fond du Lac Police Department, March 20, 2011
Deputy Sheriff Kory Elwyn Dahlvig, Vilas County Sheriff’s Office, April 25, 2010
Trooper Jorge Ronald Dimas, Wisconsin State Patrol, July 14, 2009
Deputy Sheriff Jason Scott Zunker, Chippewa County Sheriff’s Office, January 5, 2008
Deputy Sheriff Frank Fabiano, Jr., Kenosha County Sheriff’s Office, May 17, 2007
"We are proud to partner with the Milwaukee Brewers," said Craig W. Floyd, Chairman and CEO of the Memorial Fund. “Coming together at Miller Park for a fun night of baseball, to honor our nation’s first responders and all public safety professionals—especially the six Wisconsin officers to whom we will pay tribute—is sure to be a great evening, and a great way to raise awareness and funds for the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund."
Please come out and join the “Brew Crew” and the Memorial Fund in saluting America’s first responders Tuesday September 11, 2012. The game starts at 7:10 pm, but attendees are encouraged to arrive early to participate in the special pre-game ceremony honoring law enforcement heroes.
