BUCKS LAUNCH #OWNTHEFUTURE STATEWIDE BUS TOUR
Sat, 20 Sep 2014
Bucks players, Bango, Hoop Troop and Milwaukee Bucks Dancers will visit Madison, Janesville and Kenosha Sept. 19-20, and Eau Claire, Wausau and Appleton Sept. 26-27
Excitement for the upcoming Bucks season is too strong to stay contained in Milwaukee alone. Today, the Milwaukee Bucks announced their first #OwnTheFuture Statewide Bus Tour, which will span six cities across Wisconsin over the next two weekends, Sept. 19-20 and Sept. 26-27.
The bus tour will bring elements of the Bucks game night experience – plus more – to the cities, by taking time to interact with members of the community and give back through clinics and other public activities. The team’s mascot, Bango, as well as members of the Bucks Hoop Troop and the Milwaukee Bucks Dancers will accompany a promising young Bucks player to help share the message that the Bucks proudly represent the entire state of Wisconsin.
Bucks forward Khris Middleton will tip off the first weekend this Friday, Sept. 19, with a trip to Madison to visit the American Family Children’s Hospital at UW Health Center, drop by the University of Wisconsin, and take a walk down State Street to see the state capital. Media availability in Madison will be at the conclusion of the hospital visit at approximately 11 a.m., with opportunities to get b-roll throughout the afternoon.
Media interested in scheduling interviews should contact Kristen Deahl of the Bucks PR department at firstname.lastname@example.org.
At 2 p.m., Middleton and the tour will depart Madison and continue to Janesville where the Bucks will spend time with the local Boys & Girls Club hosting a basketball clinic at 3:30 p.m. Following that event, the bus will return to Milwaukee and make a final stop at NEWaukee’s “Summer’s Last BBQ” event and basketball court unveiling at the ARTery, a creative revitalization project on Milwaukee’s Beerline Trail.
On Saturday, Sept. 20, Middleton and the Bucks Bus Tour will take a short drive down to Kenosha to hold an open basketball clinic at the local YMCA and go on a tour of the Jelly Belly Factory in Pleasant Prairie with local children.
The second weekend of events venture farther north to Eau Claire, Wausau and Appleton. Details of that trip will be released next week. Further details of this weekend’s trip are below:
