A team of Milwaukee public officials will face off against business leaders from around the city in a basketball game and charity event to benefit Autism Speaks on Saturday, June 13 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at Journey House.

Alderman José G. Pérez will lead a team of city officials that will include Common Council President Michael J. Murphy, Alderman Willie C. Wade, Alderman Nik Kovac, Alderman Russell W. Stamper, II and other city employees. They will go head-to-head with a team of business leaders coached by Spanish Center housing director Hernan Castillo.

“No matter what the scoreboard says, Autism Speaks will be the real winner at the end of the day,” Alderman Pérez said. “And that’s a good thing for Hernan and his guys, because with the ringers we have on our team, I expect the elected officials will make short work of them.”

The event will also include pre-game and halftime entertainment, a cookout and a bake sale. All proceeds go to benefit Autism Speaks.

What:    Charity basketball game to benefit Autism Speaks
When:   Saturday, June 13, 4:00 to 8:00 p.m.
