Annual Bucks MACC Fund game is Dec. 21

I was there 35 years ago when the MACC Fund was created.

Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer was created when Jon McGlocklin retired as the all time favorite Milwaukee Buck. No Buck, before or since, has become such a part of the community in which he played.

The creation of the MACC Fund was an idea born with no real idea of what it would become. Through thousands of local events from fashion shows to dinner parties to golf tournaments to tavern fundraisers. the MACC Fund is the go-to charity in Milwaukee. It's all local and is a source of community pride.

The 35th annual MACC Fund game is scheduled for December 21st at the Bradley Center. The Bucks play the Minnesota Wolves, led by magic point guard Rickey Rubio and new, veteran coach Rick Adelman. The game tips off at 7 p.m.

Tickets for the 35th Annual MACC Fund game at the Bradley Center are on sale now at the Bradley Center Box Office (9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday), by calling TicketMaster (1-800-4NBA-TIX) or by visiting Bucks.com.

The MACC Fund is a very special organization that has shown incredible growth. Executive Director John Carey has presided over a spectacular success for a local charity, and Bucks vice president John Steinmiller has been a guiding force for the charity since the the idea was born.

There is a lot of curiosity about this year's edition of the Bucks. They stand a chance to be a very surprising team if the moves they have made fall into place, much like the kind of thing that happened with the Milwaukee Brewers last season.

The MACC Fund game is a great opportunity to get a first look at the Bucks and to contribute to a very worthy cause.

Looking forward to seeing some NBA basketball back in Milwaukee even for a shortened season. Games will actually become more meaningful simply because there are less of them.
