MILWAUKEE — The Milwaukee Admirals have donated over $64,000 to local charities as a part of their Community Partners program.

The Admirals teamed up with local companies during the 2019-20 season to sponsor certain events and games. Money from those games is now being given to local charities.

Some of these sponsored events had promotions like $10 donations for every Admirals goal. The Admirals power play foundation then matched all of the money raised.

The $64K total also includes a $24K donation to Children's Wisconsin. This donation came from ticket sales for the team’s annual Charity Game. $3 from each ticket was donated.

The remained of the $64K went to the following charities:

$6,450 to Hunger Task Force, courtesy of Associated Bank for $10 for every Admirals penalty killed
$3,395 to Sculpture Milwaukee, courtesy of the Baker-Tilly for $1 for each Admirals Save
$4,020 to Children’s Hospital, courtesy of Briggs and Stratton for $10 for every Admirals Power Play
$6,140 to Ronald McDonald House, courtesy of Continental Properties for $10 for every Admirals assist
$4,220 to Camp Reunite courtesy of Kapco for $10 for every Admirals Goal
$5,961 to several local charities courtesy of Potawatomi Hotel & Casino for all Chuck-A-Puck money raised
