Packers And Brewers Greats Support Recent Tragedies

Prominent players of both the Packers and Brewers are stepping up and doing their part to help people affected by two recent tragedies – the Brookfield shooting and Hurricane Sandy. These are just the newest examples of two organizations that consistently show support for their communities and people everywhere (see more stories about the Packers and Brewers organizations).

Wisconsin’s two pro MVPs Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun, through their 8-Twelve restaurant, have organized a Benefit for the Children of Azana Spa Victims Monday, November 12, 2012 from 5:00 PM to 8:00 PM (CST) Brookfield, WI. This benefit, sponsored by the SURG Restaurant Group and 8-Twelve business partners Aaron Rodgers and Ryan Braun, will benefit the children of the three women who lost their lives in the Azana Spa shooting. The $100 admission will include a silent auction, food stations and all beverages, including wine donated by One Hope Wine and Woodson’s Twenty-Four. Today’s TMJ4 anchor Susan Kim will emcee the evening.8-Twelve. Food and fundraising together – a very Well-Met event.

If you would like to be an MVP to those affected by this tragedy, sign up here for the event.

Packers defensive back Charles Woodson announced that he will give a major gift to a charity to help in the relief effort for Hurricane Sandy. At a campaign event for President Barack Obama, Woodson said he would give $100,000 to the American Red Cross. Charles is a true believer in extending compassion to others whenever possible. For this reason he established the Charles Woodson Foundation. The foundation offers the Charles C. Woodson scholarship which provides college funding to students of financial need who are entering a Kinesiology program. In honor of Charles’ mother, the Georgia A. Woodson Scholarship offers aid to students who were raised in single parent homes. Charles even uses his own private label of wine – TwentyFour Wines – to promote his foundation, donating $10 of every bottle sold to the CS Mott Children’s Hospital & Von Voightlander Women’s Hospital in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Charles once again shows what a great man he is.
