Wisconsin Herd Teams Up with Bergstrom Automotive to Support Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin

By ohill | March 12, 2019

The Wisconsin Herd, the NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks, will wear Make-A-Wish® themed uniforms, presented by Bergstrom Automotive, on Wednesday, March 13.

The special themed-jerseys, presented by Bergstrom Automotive, will be auctioned off at whmaw2019.afrogs.org. Fans can bid now through Sunday, March 17 at 12 p.m. with proceeds benefiting Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin.

“All the money raised from the jersey auction will go such a long way in helping to bring hope, strength and joy to our precious local wish children who are enduring such dark and difficult times,” said Northeast Wisconsin Regional Director for Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin, Kris Teofilo. “Because of our wonderful community, like the Wisconsin Herd and Bergstrom Automotive, these kids get to dream about what they can wish for and then when they decide what their wish is their thoughts are diverted to dreaming about their special wish coming true.”

The Herd game will serve as an unofficial tipoff for Bergstrom’s annual Drive for Dreams. All Bergstrom dealerships will donate $5 to Make-A-Wish® Wisconsin for every test drive taken in April.

Limited seats are still available to see these unique jerseys in action on March 13. To purchase tickets, go to wisconsinherd.com or call a Herd sales representative at (920) 233-HERD.
