Creating a peaceful Milwaukee can be as exciting as cheering on the Brewers or attending one of Milwaukee’s finest fashion shows. We offer events throughout the year to create awareness of our mission and raise funds to support our programs and services.

K’s for a Cause
We are excited to announce a partnership with the Brewers Community Foundation and WaterStone Bank. Through the partnership, WaterStone Bank will serve as the title sponsor for an in-stadium promotion called “WaterStone Bank’s K’s for a Cause.” WaterStone Bank and the Brewers Community Foundation will each make a donation to Sojourner Family Peace Center for every strikeout recorded by a Brewers pitcher at Miller Park during the 2014 season.
WaterStone Bank and Sojourner will receive logo messaging on the “strikeout meter” sign at Miller Park, which is located on the right field fascia. The display will include the total number of strikeouts by Brewers pitchers at Miller Park this season.
Over the past four seasons, Brewers pitchers have recorded the second-most strikeouts at home (2,698) among all Major League teams. Only the Atlanta Braves have tallied more strikeouts in their home ballpark during this stretch (2,715).
