Supporting Wisconsin Families

Cheer on former UW athletes as they come home to the KOHL CENTER to benefit children and adults with disabilities. Special guests from The Joe & Ebo Show will be our sideline commentators. Win prizes, snap a photo with Bucky Badger, shoot hoops with the celebrities, and much more at this affordable, family-friendly event!

Participants will receive instruction from Coach Gary Close along with former UW basketball players. This $20 ticket includes a t-shirt and entry to the celebrity game immediately following. Pre-registration is required and only 100 spots available!

The Importance of Community Involvement

“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 and we continue to support such a fantastic community of leaders who work with families needing support.

“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.
