The 50/50 Raffle tickets are sold throughout Miller Park from gate opening through the fourth inning of every Brewers home game. The winning ticket will be announced in the middle of the sixth inning, right before the Klement's Famous Sausage Race, and the winner will have until the middle of the seventh inning to claim his/her prize at the 50/50 information table. If the prize goes unclaimed by the middle of the seventh inning, another ticket will be drawn and announced. One lucky fan will take home half of the net proceeds from the game's raffle ticket sales. The other half will go to Brewers Community Foundation. Last year Brewers Community Foundation was able to help more than 200 local non-profit organizations in the area of health, education, recreation and basic needs.

Brewers Community Foundation, Inc. is proud to offer three scholarship programs to Wisconsin Students. New in 2014, all scholarship applications will be submitted on-line.
The Allan H. Selig Scholarship Program was created in the name of former Brewers President and current Commissioner of Baseball Allan H. (Bud) Selig. Funding for the scholarships is the result of proceeds donated by Major League Baseball, from the All-Star Workout Day, part of the 2002 All-Star festivities held at Miller Park. Selected candidates will receive $2,500 annually, renewable each year for a total of $10,000 over four years.
The Players/Coaches Scholarship Program is made possible thanks to Milwaukee Brewers players' and coaches' commitment to educational opportunities for youth. This scholarship is a one-year award that varies in amounts from season to season. Generally scholarship awards have been between $1,000 and $2,500.
The Miller Park Community Scholarship Program provided its first award in 2013. Eligible applicants must be a minority or female student residing in either Milwaukee, Waukesha, Ozaukee, Washington or Racine County. Applicants must also be a student pursuing studies in a design-or construction-related field at a technical college, college or university in the State of Wisconsin.
