Next week Tuesday March 11 the Cultural & Entertainment Task Force is holding the 2nd Public Listening Session this time downtown at the Boys & Girls Club on 6th Street at 6pm to 7:30pm.
SaveOurBucks.com ‘s own Paul Henning will be attending, we’d love you to join him to voice or just show your support for a new arena project (or entertainment complex as they are calling it now). That same night the Bucks take on the Twolves on the road at 7pm. After the meeting there’ll be a viewing party at The Loaded Slate to watch the game. Paul has reserved the back room which has a projection screen, there will be food & drink available for purchase. Paul will also have a limited number of FREE SOB t-shirts while they last.
Sporting News have covered saveourbucks.com and the launch of the billboard on their site, saying in part :
“A group of concerned Bucks fans rallied together to create “SaveOurBucks.com” with the goal of keeping the team in Milwaukee. They recently purchased a billboard sign outside of the city with a most interesting slogan.”
We knew there was a groundswell of support for @SaveOurBucks, but this is amazing! Two days ago some guys put together the Indiegogo funding project to get our message out on a billboard and help raise awareness for this campaign, they had the lofty goal of raising $5000 and some saw that as fanciful – we just hit that target in less than 48 hours.
We’re overwhelmed by the support, thank you to everyone who contributed. We’ll keep you posted on the progress!
