Milwaukee Brewers Law Enforcement Appreciation Night

The National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial Fund would like to extend a special thanks to the Milwaukee Brewers for hosting a Law Enforcement Appreciation Night when they took on the Pittsburgh Pirates at Miller Park on Friday, May 24. On this special night, the opening ceremony of the game was dedicated to Officer Jennifer Lynn Sebena, a Wauwatosa (WI) Police Officer who was killed in the line of duty last December. Officer Sebena’s friend and colleague, Officer Katie Gierach, threw out the first pitch on behalf of the Sebena family who was in attendance at the game.

Also honored during Friday's game was Milwaukee’s own Harley-Davidson® Motor Company. Harley-Davidson® is one of the Memorial Fund’s corporate partners and generously provides a new Peace Officer Special Edition Motorcycle each year for the Memorial Fund’s annual Harley raffle. As a result of the raffles, Harley-Davidson® has helped raise over $600,000 for the National Law Enforcement Museum. Memorial Fund Chairman and CEO Craig Floyd was on hand to present a token of appreciation to Sue Brand, Harley-Davidson-Police and Fleet Sales Team Member, on behalf of the Memorial Fund.

A special thank you goes out to Law Enforcement Ambassador Nate Catura and the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association for all of their help and support in organizing this event. FLEOA graciously hosted a pre-game reception for the game's honorees.
