Bucks center Andrew Bogut will host a charity reception and auction on Sunday, April 5, to benefit individuals and communities affected by the Victorian bushfires in Australia last February. Bogut, a native of Australia, will be joined by several of his teammates and coaches at the event, which runs from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Woodland Dreams Ballroom at the Potawatomi Bingo Casino. The fourth-year veteran has also pledged to personally match whatever money is raised at the event.

“There are thousands of people in Australia right now that are relying on the generous support of other people to get through a very tragic time in their lives,” said Bogut. “I’m very grateful for the support of my team and the Greater Milwaukee community in coming together to help raise money for people in my other home, Australia.”

In addition to socializing with some familiar Bucks personalities, guests will also have the chance to bid on premium auction items, including a LeBron James jersey, Kobe Bryant’s shoes, other sports memorabilia and Milwaukee Bucks items. Tickets to the event are $60 per person and the evening will feature complimentary hors d’oeuvres. A cash bar will also be available. Guests must be 21 years or older to attend.

The bushfires in Australia claimed the lives of more than 200 people and left over 10,000 people homeless. Vast areas of farmland and forest were destroyed in Australia’s worst-ever wildfire disaster. All money raised at Bogut’s event will benefit the Victorian Bushfire Appeal, which is being administered by the Australian Red Cross and Australian Government.

For more information on the April 5 event or to RSVP, please contact Lori Radean at (414) 227-0578 or lradean@bucks.com. Valet parking will be available on the north end of the casino off of the Canal Street entrance. Complimentary self-parking is available in the structure just south of the casino. The Woodland Dreams Ballroom is located on the third floor.
