Adoption advocate program sponsors Summerfest Family Day

Jockey Being Family, a corporate citizenship program of Kenosha-based Jockey International, will host Summerfest Family Day on Sunday, June 27. The first 1,000 patrons to donate $10 to the Debra Steigerwaldt Waller Foundation will receive free admission to Summerfest and a Jockey Being Family Teddy Bear.
The Debra Steigerwaldt Waller Foundation is named for Debra Waller, chairman and CEO of Jockey International who was adopted as a child.
Jockey Being Family is an organization dedicated to strengthening and supporting families that choose to adopt.
Since its launch in 2005, the program has donated more than $2 million in direct support and sponsored fundraising for post-adoption services, and has also awarded more than 160 scholarships for adoptive parents across the U.S. and Canada.
Proceeds from the Summerfest Family Day will go to support that effort.
According to Jockey, more than 125,000 children in the U.S. are waiting to be adopted right now. Visit for more information.
