Mark your calendar for Sharp Literacy’s A Novel Event, presented by the Brewers Community Foundation.

The event takes place on Thursday, Sept. 15 from 5 to 8 p.m. at American Family Field and features a wide range of food and beverage offerings, plus engaging conversation with Milwaukee Brewers' pitchers.

At A Novel Event, guests will be treated to elevated ballpark fare from a variety of food and beverage stations, plus the opportunity to mix and mingle in a casual environment while winning big during Sharp Literacy’s voice auction and raffles.

Guests can also head down to the stadium seating bowl where Emcee Ted Perry of Fox 6 News will be engaging Brewers’ pitchers Corbin Burnes, Brent Suter and Taylor Rogers in unforgettable baseball banter.

For 25 years, SHARP Literacy has been engaging urban youth in experiential programming that enhances their understanding of science, technology, engineering, art and math. And their work is more important than ever as they offer essential STEAM-based programming to thousands of students in Southeastern Wisconsin who are working to overcome COVID-related learning losses.
