This annual event is the cornerstone of the Bucks 34-year commitment to the Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer. Since the inaugural event in 1977, the annual MACC Fund Game has raised more than $1.2 million dollars for children’s cancer research at the Midwest Children’s Cancer Center in Milwaukee.

 

“The MACC Fund is thrilled that the Bucks have continued to be a partner of ours these past 35 years,” MACC Fund President and Bucks legend Jon McGlocklin said. “Over that time cure rates for childhood cancer have risen from 20% to 80%, and the entire Bucks organization has contributed towards that success. We’re so thankful for all of their support and appreciative that we’ll once again be a part of the team’s preseason schedule.”

 

The Bucks played a major role in the creation of the MACC Fund in 1976.  At the time, Bucks radio announcer Eddie Doucette had a son, Brett, who was diagnosed with cancer.  Jon McGlocklin was retiring from the Bucks, so he and Doucette decided to create a fund to support research to help children like Brett who had cancer.  The MACC Fund was founded during a halftime ceremony on December 10, 1976, honoring McGlocklin’s retirement.  Brett Doucette, the MACC Fund’s ‘first success story’, beat the odds and today he is healthy and happily married.

 

Lower level tickets for both Bradley Center preseason games are priced at $72.35, $58.35, $56.35, $36.35 and $34.35, while upper level seating is priced at $22.35, $19.35, $16.35 and $8.

 

Milwaukee will play their only other preseason game against Minnesota at the Target Center on Saturday, December 17.  Both games will be heard on Newsradio 620 WTMJ and the Bucks statewide radio network.
