The Milwaukee Bucks will host an exclusive playoff watch party on Thursday for local businesses that are part of the Fiserv Back2Business program, which supports small, minority-owned businesses that have been negatively impacted by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.

These business owners will be invited to Fiserv Forum to watch Game 3 of the First Round of the Bucks Playoffs, presented by BMO, against the Heat, which tips off at 6:30 p.m. CT in Miami.

A total of 170 Milwaukee-area businesses have collectively received more than $1.5 million in grants as part of the Fiserv Back2Business program, a $50 million commitment to support minority-owned businesses through financial grants, business expertise, leading technology solutions, strategic partnerships, and community engagement.

The watch party will provide an opportunity to network with fellow merchants and will feature raffles, gift cards, a DJ and the Bucks Entertainment Team, as well as refreshments provided by Back2Business grant recipients including Lush Popcorn and Signature Sweets.

Attendees will also be taken on guided behind-the-scenes tours of Fiserv Forum, where the innovative Fiserv point-of-sale platform, Clover® has been deployed throughout.

As part of the Back2Business program grant recipients have also been equipped with Clover technology.
