Easter Seals Wisconsin will host its first-ever Celebrity Basketball Challenge, presented by Affiliated Dentists, on April 7. Media Partners include ESPN Wisconsin and Wisconsin’s 57 Televisions. The game will showcase former University of Wisconsin athletes and other local celebrities. The roster is being finalized and will be released on the Easter Seals Wisconsin website in early April.
There will also be an opportunity for students, grades 3-6, to attend a pre-game event – the Shot Doctor Skills Academy – hosted by Coach Gary Close. Students will have the opportunity to work on their basketball skills in small groups led by former Badger Basketball players. Registration is $20 each but space is limited – only the first 100 to sign up will be able to participate!
Proceeds from the event will go to the programs and services of Easter Seals Wisconsin – directly benefiting children and adults with disabilities.
