We are excited to announce the 2nd Annual Easter Seals Wisconsin Celebrity Basketball Challenge – presented by Affiliated Dentists! Join us on Saturday, April 13th (tip off @ 3:00) at Madison College and cheer on former University of Wisconsin athletes as they hit the hardwood to benefit children and adults with disabilities. Special guests from The Joe & Ebo Show will be our sideline commentators, thanks to our media sponsor Wisconsin Sports Zone. This affordable family-friendly event includes activities, chances to win prizes, halftime entertainment, and much more!

“Affiliated Dentists is proud to be an active part of our community and the presenting sponsor for this year’s Easter Seals Wisconsin Celebrity Basketball Challenge,” says Dr. Mark Gustavson. “We love basketball, so this event is a natural fit for our team to get involved! The fact that it benefits families and individuals with disabilities throughout Wisconsin makes it even more worthwhile.”

Affiliated Dentists was the presenting sponsor for the event in its inaugural year.

“They understood our vision for this new event from the very beginning. When we approached them to sponsor again for the second annual charity game, they didn’t hesitate to accept. We are thrilled that they’re on board again this year.” says Christine Fessler, President and CEO of Easter Seals Wisconsin.
