Delta Dental to Make a Club Donation Every Time Brewers Successfully Steal a Base
STEVENS POINT — Milwaukee – Delta Dental of Wisconsin is teaming up with the Boys & Girls Clubs to sponsor stolen bases on the Brewers Radio Network. For every Brewers stolen base, Delta Dental will “bag” another donation for over 143,000 club kids across Wisconsin. It also means the announcers — including Mr. Baseball himself, Bob Uecker — will mention support to the Boys & Girls Clubs during every game.
“We’re proud to team up with Delta Dental to support our club kids across 89 sites in Wisconsin,” said Andy Gussert, State Director of the Wisconsin Boys and Girls Club. “We’re also rooting for the team to be at the top of the league again in stolen bases.” The Milwaukee Brewers ranked first across all major league baseball in 2016, and second in 2017 for stolen bases.
“The gift from Delta Dental provides program funding not only for our local Club but for Clubs across Wisconsin,” said Kevin Quevillon, Executive Director of the Boys & Girls Club of Portage County. “Delta Dental helps us achieve our mission of providing after school and summer programming for kids who need us most.”
According to Delta Dental of Wisconsin’s company spokesperson Amanda Lowery, “Supporting youth programs including those offered by the Boys & Girls Clubs is part of the Delta Dental culture. If we can give Wisconsin kids a reason to smile, then we’ve succeeded.”At the end of the season, Delta Dental will provide a donation of over $25,000 to be shared across 46 cities served by Boys & Girls Clubs.
