MILWAUKEE (WSAU-Wheeler News) Those who work at Milwaukee's indoor entertainment arena got quite a surprise recently -- letters of appreciation and checks for $500. The money came from Herb Kohl, whose Milwaukee Bucks have played at the BMO Harris Bradley Center ever since the arena opened in 1988.
Kohl recently sold the team, and arena employees said they were shocked to be remembered like this.
Bradley Center usher Izeal Atkins tells WISN T- that he rarely cries -- but he couldn't help doing so after he got Kohl's letter and check. Arena security guard Markeish Stringer said, "You just don't hear about people doing that."
Kohl, a former U-S senator, owned Milwaukee's N-B-A team since 1985. He sold it this month to New York hedge fund owners Marc Lasry and Wesley Edens for $550-million.
