Educators Credit Union is teaming up with the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Athletics Department to fund higher education. The Athletics Department is raffling off a 2011 decommissioned Harley-Davidson police cruiser at the Panthers baseball game against Wright State on May 12. The bike was donated by the House of Harley-Davidson, with about 31,000 miles on it.
The creativity doesn’t stop there. The UWM Athletics Department joined with the Peck School to generate scholarship funds for UWM. The Peck School held an arts call open to undergraduate and graduate Art and Design students to design the motorcycle. The theme for the design was service and community in Milwaukee.
Graduate student Amber Van Galder was chosen by the judges to customize the motorcycle. The motorcycle will be on display all throughout Milwaukee until the big game. It will be at the House of Harley-Davidson, our Educators Prospect branch, at Peck’s Kenilworth East Gallery, until finally ending at Miller Park for the game.
The public can buy tickets for the raffle ahead of the Panther Tailgate at Miller Park on May 12. You do not have to be present to win. Tickets are priced at: $25 for one, $50 for three and $100 for eight. They will accept cash, check or credit card. Checks should be made out to the UWM Foundation. If you would like to purchase tickets, you can call the UWM Athletics ticket office at 414.229.5886 or stop by the House of Harley’s Milwaukee location at 6221 W. Layton Avenue.
