Join Dwyane Wade and Travis Diener, former NBA stars and Marquette University basketball alumni, when they return to Milwaukee this summer for WADE VS. DIENER

Wade vs. Diener is a three-day event that will feature activities where Wade and Diener will compete (with your help) to raise the most money for local youth literacy programs. The three-day weekend kicks off on July 22 with Diener and Wade coaching a private basketball camp for elite girls at The Facility in Mequon. Then, on July 23, Wade and Diener will host a Tee Off Party with fundraising games, dinner and drinks at Discovery World in Milwaukee. The culminating event of the weekend is an 18-hole Golf Outing at The Bog in Saukville on July 24 that includes food, beverages, carts, and the opportunity to play alongside Wade and Diener.

Don't miss this opportunity to join these NBA stars as they give back to the Milwaukee community through their shared love of basketball and fundraising for youth literacy.

 

    


 CLOSING THE GAP

 


 

Giving back to the Milwaukee community and ensuring all children have every opportunity to succeed is important to Wade and Diener. Named after his sister, Wade currently funds The Tragil Wade-Johnson Summer Reading Program through Marquette. The University says in the first three years of the summer reading program, 131 second- and -third grade students-every single participant-either maintained or increased their reading level. Funds raised from the Wade vs. Diener events will help fund literacy programs like this.
