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 2013 season, the Twins Wives will be embarking on a few new ventures as well as some good old favorites. Visit the Twins Wives Organization booth (located behind section 117 at the Heart of Twins Territory kiosk). New this year are fleece lounge pants, t-shirts, tank tops, stocking caps, can coozies all with the custom logo found only at the Twins Wives booth. The second edition cookbook "From Our Clubhouse to Your Kitchen cookbooks filled with recipes from players and coaches is a must have . Returning will be the ever popular "Ball in Bag". Look for the Twins Wives in the Heart of Twins Territory kiosk behind home plate on the Main Concourse on the following dates:
Ladies- be sure and grab your friends and head to one of the Wine, Women, and Baseball nights at Target Field. Get a manicure, massage, grab a drink and do a little shopping before you cheer on the 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 30, June 28 and August 12.)Mark your calendar for "Hang with the Majors" event at Toby Keith's- I love this bar and grill on August 1 to benefit the Minnesota Military Family Foundation. Snag a ticket to an amazing night you won't forget.
Have dinner with players, mingle with the wives, and then grab a drink from one of players as they take a break from the field to be your own personal bartenders for the night. Not to mention there will be autographs, silent and live auctions, and plenty of fun and memories- all for a good cause. Watch for details coming soon.
In 2012, the Twins Wives Organization participated in over twenty events for local non-profits. These included the Mother's Day Race for the Cure, Cheerful Givers, Back to School Backpacks, Celebrity Birdhouses for Charity, Second Stork Bringing Baby Home, Wounded Warriors among 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. The annual "Hang with the Majors at Major's" event raised more than $30,000 for the Minnesota Military Family Foundation and Wounded Warrior Project. 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!
