MILLER BREWING CO-SPONSORS CONGRESSIONAL BASEBALL GAME; PROCEEDS FROM

SHARP'S SALES TO BE DONATED TO CHILDREN'S NATIONAL MEDICAL CENTER
 WASHINGTON, Aug. 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Miller Brewing Co. will serve as a major sponsor of the 31st Annual Roll Call Congressional Baseball Game Tuesday, Aug. 11, and will donate the proceeds from the sales of its Sharp's non-alcoholic brew to the Children's National Medical Center, the game's official charity.
 During the annual picnic preceding the game, Miller will acquaint congressional leaders, staff members, journalists and spectators with the elements of "Good Times: A Guide To Responsible Event Planning," part of the company's national responsible drinking campaign. The 38-page booklet was written for community leaders and event planners and offers guidelines to plan and execute safe and smooth-running events of all sizes, including ways to promote responsible drinking.
 Dan Tearno, Miller's director of federal government affairs, said ID cards will be checked and wristbands will be placed on those of legal drinking age who choose to drink, both effective in encouraging responsible drinking at events like the upcoming game.
 "Celebrations, festivals and sporting events are a major part of the good times in America," Tearno said. "A successful event means more than providing a fun atmosphere; it means ensuring a safe one, too."
 Miller Genuine Draft and Sharp's non-alcoholic brew will be served at the pre-game picnic, while only Sharp's will be available at the game, Tearno said.
 The pre-game picnic begins at 5 p.m., followed by the game at 7 p.m., at Four Mile Run Park in Alexandria, Va. Tickets are $8, with proceeds benefiting the center. (Tickets are available from the offices of the Democratic manager, Rep. Martin Olav Sabo (D-Minn.), 202-225-4755, or from Rep. Carl D. Pursell (R-Mich.), 202-225-4401, the Republican manager.)
 Miller is a wholly owned subsidiary of Philip Morris Companies Inc. Principal beer brands include Miller Lite, Miller Genuine Draft, Miller Genuine Draft Light, Miller High Life, Lowenbrau, Milwaukee's Best, Meister Brau and Magnum. Miller also produces Sharp's non-alcoholic brew.
