MILWAUKEE, April 4, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- For the third consecutive year, Associated Bank and Brewers Community Foundation teamed-up to launch "Hits for Homes" at Miller Park on Opening Day. This charitable program benefits Housing Resources, Inc. (HRI), a nonprofit organization that provides support to low- to moderate-income homeowners in the Milwaukee, Ozaukee, Washington and Waukesha Counties.
For every hit recorded by the Brewers during 2017 home games, Associated Bank and Brewers Community Foundation will donate $150 to HRI, up to a combined $100,000. Each hit and corresponding donation will be tallied on the Associated Bank LED board, located above the Check Deck in the outfield, throughout the baseball season.
"Associated Bank is proud to partner with the Brewers Community Foundation to support Housing Resources," said Christopher Piotrowski, EVP and chief marketing officer at Associated Bank. "We believe in the mission of Housing Resources to empower people to live their dream of successful homeownership and enrich our community."
Piotrowski explains that Associated Bank has been a long-term commercial banking partner of the Brewers and home of Brewers Checking™ and the official Brewers Credit Card. This partnership includes charitable activities to support our community as well as unique fan engagement activities to support our great team.
