Brewers wives host a number of events throughout the year as part of the team’s community efforts. Each summer, the wives host a tailgate party to benefit the Sojourner Family Peace Center, a shelter for battered women and children. Several of the wives, along with their husbands, support area children with game tickets, food vouchers and donations to youth baseball groups.
