Strikeouts against hunger

Hunger Task Force will be the proud beneficiary of Foley & Lardner LLP’s K’s for a Cause program for the third year in a row. Foley’s Milwaukee office will team up with the Milwaukee Brewers and “closer” Trevor Hoffman to bring back the season-long K’s for a Cause program, raising funds and food for Hunger Task Force.
“Wisconsin baseball fans like to have a good time,” said Sherrie Tussler, executive director. “Knowing they are helping out a hungry neighbor while they cheer on the Brewers connects them to their community. Supporting Foley’s K board adds an element of fun because there’s an even greater reason to make noise during Trevor Time.”
For each Brewers’ strikeout tallied at Miller Park, Foley partners, associates and staff have pledged to donate funds to the Hunger Task Force to fight hunger in Milwaukee. Brewers closer Trevor Hoffman will put his money where his arm is by donating $25 per strikeout.
This year, Brewers fans are invited to get in on the fun by logging on to and pledging a fixed amount per strikeout, or making a one-time donation. During each home game, strikeouts are highlighted with a big blue K on the Foley?s K’s for a Cause strikeout meter in right field.
“The K’s for a Cause program supports great community partners in the Milwaukee Brewers and Hunger Task Force, but also reflects the culture here at Foley,” said Andrew Wronski, partner and a member of Foley’s Sports Industry legal team and chair of Foley?s K’s for a Cause committee. “The support and participation from Foley and employees and the public in general in K’s for a Cause demonstrates our commitment to vital non-profit organizations during economically trying times, and we are proud to be a part of this effort.”
K’s for a Cause is a four-year partnership between Foley & Lardner LLP and the Milwaukee Brewers, which began in March, 2008. Hunger Task Force was named the beneficiary during the program?s first two years of existence, with the 2010 season marking its third year as the designated charity. Over the past two seasons, this program has raised over $275,000 toward feeding Milwaukee.
