Milwaukee Admirals Charity Hockey Game Benefits Children’s Wisconsin

The Milwaukee Admirals Charity Hockey Game will take place on Friday, December 17. As in the past, $3 from every ticket sold will go to Children’s Wisconsin.

“It’s a yearly labor of love for us to be able to give back to our community,” said Jon Greenberg, President of Admirals. “Historically, this has been a donation of over $20,000.”

Over the past 16 years of charitable gaming, the Admirals have raised over $400,000 for Children’s Wisconsin.

“Children’s is a place where our players have always had a great relationship with being able to go to the hospital, spending time with the kids, obviously this year is a bit different with COVID-19, but we’ve found some ‘other ways to do it,’ says Greenberg.

In a sense, players and patients at Children’s Wisconsin played Pictionary on Zoom.

To boost ticket sales, the Admirals are even lowering the price of some tickets to $5 and $8 for the big game.

“Really encourage people to come out, and maybe you’ve had a tough year and still want to be able to do something for the community,” Greenberg said.

There’s added excitement ahead of the game – as it’s the first charity game since 2019.

“It’s a big deal. We want to make sure people are involved. We’re all doing it together, people have to buy the tickets to participate and fill the spot. We’re all giving back together,” Greenberg says.
