Modelo and Damian Lillard Team Up to Create the Ultimate Summer Bucket List

CHICAGO, June 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Modelo knows that summer is more than just a time to unwind – it’s an opportunity to level up and reach your full potential. To recognize those who take advantage of the summer season, Modelo teamed up with professional basketball player Damian “Dame” Lillard to create the Modelo Summer Bucket Sweepstakes. With a list of summer activities curated personally by Lillard, he and Modelo are encouraging fans to unlock the full potential of the season for the chance to win exclusive prizes.

“Modelo and I both know that summer is no time to waste. Throughout my career, the summer has been a crucial period for personal growth and cultivating a winning mentality. It’s a blend of honing my skills on the court and cherishing time with loved ones, something I don’t get to do as much as I’d like to during the season,” shared Lillard. “Teaming up with Modelo on my summer bucket list allows me to inspire fans to embrace that same summer mindset.”

Each month in June, July, and August, Lillard will unveil a new bucket list activity on his and the Modelo Instagram channels. Those who rise to the challenge and share their attempts through the Modelo Summer Bucket Sweepstakes will have the chance to win a Dame-inspired Modelo beer bucket that comes complete with everything needed to make the season count including a gift card to use towards a summer’s worth of Modelo.*

At the end of the sweepstakes, all submissions, including the monthly winners, will be entered for a chance to win a grand prize “Dame Time Bucket” with items hand-selected by Damian Lillard himself including autographed sneakers and his favorite noise-canceling headphones. Plus, these buckets will include a special, personalized touch – consider it the Mark of a Fighter.  

“Modelo is fully committed to helping our fans embrace the true potential of summer and rewarding those who wholeheartedly seize the moment,” said Greg Gallagher, Vice President Brand Marketing, Modelo. “Teaming up with someone like Damian Lillard, who consistently gives his all on and off the court, allows us to raise a glass in honor of those who make the most out of the summer.”

To enter the Modelo Summer Bucket Sweepstakes, fans need to share a video or photo of themselves completing the latest bucket list activity on their own Instagram feed before each monthly entry deadline. To enter for the chance to win one of the monthly prizes, participants must be 21 years or older and include #ModeloSummerBucketSweepstakes and #21+ in the caption of their submission as well as tag and follow @ModeloUSA.
