Miller High Life delivery guy Wendell Middlebrooks, “Lucky” the Leprechaun (Brian Thomas) and several Caesar Entertainment executives presented a check for $7,112 to the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) for the funds raised through the “Give a Veteran a Piece of the High Life” program.

All summer long, caps were saved from each Miller High Life and Miller High Life Light bottle sold at one of the O’Sheas bars, and 10 cents for every cap collected was donated to the IAVA. Matt Colvin from the IAVA was there to accept the donation. In addition, all veterans and active duty military with valid identification received complimentary Miller High Life for the duration of the event. All other patrons 21 or older enjoyed Miller High Life for only $1 throughout the day. Middlebrooks gave away Miller High Life T-shirts and koozies as well as took photos and signed autographs for fans.
