MILWAUKEE (WITI) — BloodCenter of Wisconsin and the Milwaukee Bucks are teaming up to save the day for patients in need.  The 14th Annual Milwaukee Bucks Blood Drive is on Tuesday, March 4. The drive will be held from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, 1001 N. 4th St., Milwaukee. Donors may visit www.bcw.edu/bucks to schedule an appointment.

In gratitude to blood donors who are making a profound and positive impact on patients’ lives, the Milwaukee Bucks will give two vouchers for a future Bucks game to all attempting donors. The vouchers can be used for one of two games:

  • Wednesday, March 5 vs. Sacramento Kings, 7 p.m.
  • Monday, March 10 vs. Orlando Magic, 7 p.m.

Who will be the 6,000th donor?

Thousands of blood donors have attended the Milwaukee Bucks Blood Drive through the years. This year, the 6,000th donor will be identified on March 4. That donor will receive a special Milwaukee Bucks VIP package. It will include: four lower level seats to the March 27 Lakers game, a photo with a Milwaukee Bucks player, and early entry and courtside seats for pregame warm-up.

All attempting donors will also receive a limited-edition Bucks t-shirt along with complimentary childcare and free parking in the structure at 4th St. and Highland Ave.

Members of the Milwaukee Bucks Dance Team and Bucks mascot Bango will be on hand throughout the day. Bucks players and coaches may visit following their morning practice.
