OSHKOSH, Wisconsin (WFRV) – Wisconsin herd unveiled their unique jerseys which feature the artwork of five local students, just in time for their auction.
In July, nearly 2,300 artists of over 15 schools across Fox Valley showed their skills for the chance to incorporate their design on a jersey in a selected home game this season.
All they had to do was draw a picture of what the Wisconsin herd meant to them. After that, a panel of BMO team members and staff chose five winning designs.
The contest winners were from Lourdes Academy in Oshkosh, two from Oakwood Elementary in Oshkosh, and both Kimberly High School and Clayton Elementary in Neenah.
The jerseys will be worn in the Monday November 29 game against the Windy City Bulls, according to a statement. Departure is scheduled at 7:00 p.m.
Why special jerseys?
The NBA G League affiliate of the Milwaukee Bucks has partnered with BMO to raise funds for the Oshkosh Kids Foundation, which helps children from homeless and struggling families in the Oshkosh area. To do this, organizers said Wisconsin Herd was auctioning off the one-of-a-kind jerseys so that the proceeds could go to the foundation.
The auction is expected to be open until Friday, December 3 at noon. Fans will be able to bid on shirts during the match or online here.
To get a ticket for the match, you can visit the Wisconsin Herd website or call 920-233-HERD.
