A Surprise for Emylee

September 28, 2021

At the end of August, Easterseals of Southeast Wisconsin was invited to be a part of the Milwaukee Milkmen baseball game. The team has organized opportunities for local nonprofits to be able to come fundraise and have fun. Through 50/50 raffle sales, a ball toss sale, and ticket sales we were able to raise just over $1,000 to invest back into our programs. Our team had a great time and the Milkmen brought in a huge win that night.

The best part however was surprising one of our adult day service participants, Emylee with the chance to throw the first pitch. Emylee is always such a positive presence at our day services as well as our adult recreation programming. We worked with her family to keep everything a surprise and she loved it. We found out as she stood on top of the pitcher’s mound, she has a pretty solid throw.
