Red Bag for Charity Donation Total: $18100

As in seasons past, Sendik’s — home of the Famous Red Bag — made a $100 donation to the MACC Fund (Opens in a new window) for each stolen bag by the Crew during the 2016 season. We’ve partnered with the MACC Fund during recent holiday seasons to sell the MACC*Stars, among other holiday events, and this addition to the partnership helps raise awareness for the charity throughout the year.

Ted Balisteri presents John Cary a check for $18,100 as part of the 2016 Red Bag for Charity campaign.

“The MACC Fund does fantastic work in our community fighting childhood cancer,” said Nick Balistreri, family co-owner of Sendik’s. “We think this is a great, fun way to help support their mission and expand our partnership. We all love cheering on the Brewers. And of course, we’ll also now be cheering for even more stolen bases this season.”

“The MACC Fund is honored to be part of this great promotion with its friends from Sendik’s Food Markets,” said John Cary, executive director of the MACC Fund. “Teaming up with Sendik’s and the Brewers will raise important funds through the excitement of Brewers baseball while also increasing awareness for the research supported by the MACC Fund. Being part of the Sendik’s Food Markets ‘Red Bag for Charity’ means so much to the MACC Fund and the children it helps.”
