They say behind every man is an amazing woman.... these are the women behind your favorite boys of summer... the Minnesota Twins.
The Minnesota Twins Wives Organization is a group comprised of the wives or fiancés of Minnesota Twins players and coaches. Each year the Wives Organization works on many ventures that are dedicated to helping families and children in the greater-Minnesota area.
During the 2014 season, the Twins Wives will be embarking on a few new ventures as well as some good old favorites. Visit the Twins' Wives Organization kiosk to purchase exclusive Twins Wives Organization items. Money raised benefits families and children in need. Returning is the ever popular Ball in a Bag along with special pricing on items including custom Twins Fleece sweats, t-shirts, tank tops, stocking caps and scarves and can cozies. New this year is a Twins LED fan. The kiosk will be open from gates open until the end of the second inning.
Look for the Twins Wives in the Heart of Twins Territory kiosk behind home plate on the Main Concourse (located behind section 116/117) on the following dates:
Ladies- be sure and grab your friends and head to one of the Wine, Women, and Baseball nights. Get a manicure, massage, grab a drink and do a little shopping before you cheer on your Twins to a win. The wives will be present to mingle and dish about your favorite guys on the team. Trust us - this is an event you do not want to miss! (May 27, June 30 and August 15.)
Mark your calendar for a new venture this year, the "Favorite Things Basket" silent auction to be held at Target Field on July 3rd to benefit the Minnesota Military Family Foundation. Get your tickets for the game now and make sure to stop by and bid on many baskets filled with our player's favorite things as well as a few other unique items. Each player is creating a basket full of their favorite things. Come see what they put together. It might surprise you.
In 2013, the Twins Wives Organization participated in many events for local non-profits. These included the Mother's Day Race for the Cure, Cheerful Givers, Back to School Backpacks, and Celebrity Birdhouses for Charity, many others.
If we haven't already convinced you to attend a Twins Wives Event then consider this...the Wives Organization holds fundraisers all year long to benefit causes close to the heart of many in Twins Territory- we want to help those closest to us just like you do. These are normal women- just fun wives and mothers trying to navigate through an extraordinary life and wanting to give back along the way. Come and join us.... you won't regret it!
