Milwaukee Bucks Game - Boys & Girls Club of Lake
For eight of the kids, the Milwaukee Bucks game was their first time being at an NBA game. Fiserv Forum is a new sporting arena and the teens were impressed with how state of the art it was. They enjoyed all of the highlights of the game and loved how vibrant downtown Milwaukee was. Javonte T. even said "I would love to be in college in a downtown area like this." He has knowledge of the nearby universities. The atmosphere of the game was infectious, and the teens were cheering all night, even jumping up and down for t-shirts. After the game, we were able to meet the manager of ticket sales. He explained his role to them and they were able to learn about a new career. This experience introduced everyone to a new city and encouraged them to go to college and work in other careers they didn't know about. Many had never been to a professional sports outing before.
