Brewers winning season helps area nonprofit
The Milwaukee Brewers record-breaking season helped Sojourner Family Peace Center in more ways then one. For every Brewers’ run, WaterStone Bank donated $10 to Sojourner Family Peace Center, the bank recently presented the organization with a check for $7,700.
“Thanks to WaterStone Bank, the Brewers’ impressive season helped fund necessary programs and services for local residents we serve,” said Angela Mancuso, co-executive director of Sojourner Family Peace Center. “With the steady increase of domestic violence reports in our community, this donation couldn’t have come at a better time. We are especially grateful that WaterStone graciously extended this generosity through the Brewers’ postseason.”
In addition to its monetary donation, WaterStone Bank Fund, in conjunction with WTMJ-the Brewers Radio Network, underwrote commercial messages to help communicate SFPC’s mission to the Milwaukee baseball community. 2011 marked the second year of WaterStone’s partnership with the Center.
