The two-week-long celebration will include a “Salvation Army Night” at the Milwaukee Milkmen baseball game. The Salvation Army will host a Christmas-themed area on Wednesday, July 10, as the Milkmen take on the Lincoln Saltdogs. The game will start at 6:35 p.m. at Franklin Field, 7035 S Ballpark Dr, Franklin, WI 53132. There will be photos with Santa, activities for kids, festive Christmas decorations, and Christmas-themed treats. Tickets, which start at just $9, can be purchased at

By achieving our goal of selling 200 tickets, The Salvation Army will receive $3 from every ticket sold, a share of the concessions stand revenue, and a portion of proceeds from other in-game fundraising activities. These funds will support our ongoing community programs, including our Emergency Lodge homeless shelter and meal initiatives.
