Jonathan Lucroy came for a charity event
MILWAUKEE – 3rd Street Market Hall announced Wednesday, Dec. 8, that former Milwaukee Brewers All-Star wide receiver Jonathan Lucroy is heading to town to attend and donate to the covered market’s United For Waukesha charity event on Dec. 22.
According to a press release, the parade attack is close to Lucroy’s home, not only because he performed in the area, but because his daughter, Ellia, was born in Waukesha.
“My wife and I got married here. My daughter was born here. This town means a lot to me,” Lucroy said. “Hearing about the Waukesha tragedy has made me want to support the families who have been affected. I want to start making a difference for the area that has made me who I am today.”

The United For Waukesha charity event will take place on December 22 from 5-8 p.m. at the next market hall. Attendees will get a preview of the venue, two drink tickets, a thank-you bag from local businesses, and food samples from its local vendors and restaurants. All proceeds will benefit those affected by the tragedy at the Waukesha Christmas Parade. Tickets, donations and event details are available at 3rdstmarkethall.com.
