Restaurants to donate to Humane Society in honor of “Hank the Dog”
MILWAUKEE (WITI) — In honor of Milwaukee Brewers “Hank the Dog” and in support of local stray and unwanted animals, Sobelman’s Pub & Grill (1901 W. St. Paul Avenue, Milwaukee) and Pizza Man (2597 N. Downer Avenue, Milwaukee) will each donate $10 for every Brewers home run in the 2014 season to the Wisconsin Humane Society.
While home runs were down last season (due to injuries and the loss of Ryan Braun’s bat for much of the season) both restaurants expect the Brewers to hit approximately 200 home runs in the 2014 season making their approximated total donation to the Wisconsin Humane Society $2,000 each; both Sobelman’s and Pizza Man hope for even more home runs and will be cheering for the team to break their all-time single season home run record (231 in 2007)!
The purpose of the donations is to support and raise awareness for local stray and unwanted animals. “Hank the Dog” has captured the hearts and minds of many Brewers fans and people across the country and it seems his destiny not only to fit in as a Brewers “team player” but also as an ambassador for animals such as himself prior to walking onto the field in Maryvale…lost, alone, unwanted, unloved.
Both Sobelman’s and Pizza Man hope other local animal-loving businesses are encouraged to join in the campaign, to benefit either the Wisconsin Humane Society or MADACC (Milwaukee Area Domestic Animal Control Commission) in honor of “Hank the Dog”.
