Community Foundation to receive award
News from the Brewers:
Brewers Community Foundation, the official charitable arm of the Milwaukee Brewers, will be honored as the recipient of the Lincoln Gaines Award from the YMCA of Metropolitan Milwaukee. The award is sponsored by M&I, a partner of BMO Finanbcial Group.
The Lincoln Gaines Award was created to honor the memory of Lincoln Gaines and his commitment to Milwaukee’s central city. Gaines was a co-organizer of the North Central YMCA in 1929 and devoted over 50 years to improving the quality of life for Milwaukee’s youth. Brewers Community Foundation will be honored at the YMCA 15th Annual Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Breakfast on Monday, January 16 at the Frontier Airlines Center.
The YMCA seeks to recognize those members and organizations of the Milwaukee community that build awareness, speak on behalf of justice, celebrate diversity, and impel action in building a better future for all mankind. Award recipients are organizations that meet these criteria and embody the values articulated by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Brewers Community Foundation harnesses the pride, passion and commitment of Brewers fans, players and other supporters to positively impact the lives of children and their families in Greater Milwaukee and Wisconsin.
