Green Bay Booyah and Capital Credit Union hit a GRAND SLAM
for Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin

Plus, former Packer Jarrett Bush will throw out the first pitch for BBBSNEW!

It’s time to get your game face on with Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Wisconsin (BBBSNEW) and the Green Bay Booyah!

BBBSNEW was approached in May of 2021 to be a featured non-profit at the July 12 Booyah game at 6:35p.m. The evening activities include a fun night of baseball, raffles and the chance to meet former Packer Jarrett Bush. This event will be a perfect opportunity to highlight many great Big and Little matches and set the spotlight on all the mentoring work being done in the greater Green Bay area. Throughout the game, BBBSNEW will receive three shout-outs and have an opportunity to run a 50/50 raffle campaign to help raise funds to continue to support kids in the community.

What would a BBBSNEW night at Booyah be without matches cheering on their Green Bay baseball team? Thanks to a generous donation by Capital Credit Union, approximately 25 matches were offered FREE admission to the game and an opportunity to experience a night of baseball.  This opportunity is new to many BBBSNEW Littles and is one more way to let them know they are appreciated!

Vic Valdez, Director of Marketing and Communications with BBBSNEW shared, “One of the main benefits for BBBSNEW youth is getting to experience new opportunities… like a baseball game! Extra big “Thank You” to Capital Credit Union and the Booyah organization for creating this exciting opportunity for our Littles.”

In addition to a summer evening of fun at the ball park, this event will be an awesome opportunity to promote BBBSNEW programming and the ways community members can be involved. BBBSNEW will host a booth on the main concourse level of the stadium to share more information and answer questions about mentoring in the community. The booth will be run by current BBBSNEW matches who are ready to share their adventures with the community.

As if the night was not exciting enough- did someone say Packers? That’s right! Former Packer Jarrett Bush will take the mound to throw out the first pitch and be at the BBBSNEW information booth to take photos with fans and help promote the organization. Put it all together and this is an evening you do not want to miss!
