19th Annual “Bucks Wives Save Lives” silent auction

During the Bucks vs. New York Knicks game on Friday, March 9, be sure to stop by the East lobby of the Bradley Center to check out the 19th Annual “Bucks Wives Save Lives” silent auction.  The Milwaukee Bucks and Columbia St. Mary’s Hospital are joining together for the annual auction with all proceeds benefiting the Columbia St. Mary’s Breast Health Programs and the Milwaukee Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Program.

The silent auction begins at 6:30 p.m. and will close near the end of halftime.  Fans will have the opportunity to bid on a number of NBA-related items including autographed jerseys and basketballs from stars throughout the league.  There will also be a framed autographed jersey of Clay Matthews from the Green Bay Packers. 

The “Favorite Things” baskets return for the fourth year.  The baskets were put together by Bucks Team Mates, which is an organization of Bucks wives, girlfriends, and family members.  The baskets include autographed shoes plus the player’s favorite books, dvds, cds, snacks, restaurant gift cards, and much more. 

During the auction, Bucks Team Mates and representatives from Columbia St. Mary’s and the Milwaukee Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Program will be on hand to monitor the auction and answer questions about the program.

The Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Program is a project of the City of Milwaukee Health Department.  Since its inception in 1990, the program has provided breast cancer screenings to more than 31,000 uninsured and underinsured women in the City of Milwaukee.  The Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Program is supported by city, state, and private contributions.

Previous “Bucks Wives Save Lives” auctions have raised more than $240,000 over the last 18 seasons.

Columbia St. Mary’s is a marketing partner with the Milwaukee Bucks and is excited to participate in the Buck's Wives Save Lives event this Sunday to support The Milwaukee Breast and Cervical Cancer Awareness Program.  The Columbia St. Mary's Breast Health Center is working to bring digital mammography closer to home for the women of Southeastern Wisconsin with the addition of the new Columbia St. Mary's Mobile Digital Mammography Center.  The Mobile Digital Mammography Center provides screening mammograms at clinic locations and community partners in an effort to make the screening process easier and more accessible. The Mobile Digital Mammography Center will be at the event and open for tours.
