“We’re thrilled to support Brewers Community Foundation, a great charity that helps deserving families throughout the Milwaukee area,” says Howard Brandeisky, Vice President Global Marketing and Customer Solutions at John B. Sanfilippo & Son, Inc., the manufacturer and distributor of Fisher Nuts products. “This campaign gave us the opportunity to support the city of Milwaukee, the Brewers and their fans.” The Milwaukee Brewers won two games in a row 26 times during the 2012 season, resulting in a $13,000 donation to the charity. The check was formally presented to Brewers Community Foundation during the Brewer’s September 30 th home game against the Houston Astros. In addition to donating to the Brewers Community Foundation, Fisher Nuts also gave fans the chance to win $250 gift cards to Pick ‘n Save ® stores, Metro Market ® stores and Copps Food Centers ® in a season-long sweepstakes. Two grand prize winners were awarded a party for 20 at Miller Park. Both grand prize packages included game tickets and a special meet-and-greet with the Brewers Manager, Ron Roenicke.
