Milwaukee Brewers’ Left Fielder Ryan Braun, together with SURG Restaurant Group and The Froedtert Hospital Foundation, announce a benefit to launch a new fund created to help children in our community in time of crisis.
The inaugural benefit will be held Wednesday, May 22, 2013 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. at 8-Twelve MVP Bar and Grill, 17800 W. Bluemound Rd. in Brookfield. Braun has generously agreed to offer his support to appear and to meet attendees.
Whether it is to provide a hand to hold or a simple stuffed toy for a child to snuggle in an emergency room, the SURG Restaurant Group Fund for Children, established in April 2013, is a partnership between SURG Restaurant Group and The Froedtert Hospital Foundation.
Grants from the fund will be used for the purchase of toys, videos, games and other needs for children in emergency rooms or waiting rooms at Froedtert. The fund also may be used to support the education of staff working with children at the hospital. The SURG Restaurant Group Fund is for all children touched by crisis – those who receive services including pediatric radiation oncology, or those waiting for news about loved ones in the hospital’s family center.
