The Harlem Ambassadors will play a basketball game with the “Waupaca Rotary Comets” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 30, at Waupaca High School.
The Waupaca Breakfast Rotary Club has partnered with the Ambassadors to raise funds.
The Harlem Ambassadors offer a unique style of basketball, featuring high-flying slam-dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks and comedy routines.
“At our shows, we want the kids to know that they’re part of our team, too,” Ambassadors coach Lade Majic said. “We invite as many kids as we can to come sit on the bench, have a front-row seat during the show, and get involved in all of the fun stuff we do.”
The Ambassadors also deliver a positive message for youths and work with local not-for-profit and service groups. They have worked with Habitat for Humanity, Boys and Girls Clubs, Big Brothers Big Sisters, and American Red Cross, as well as Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs in communities throughout the U.S.
They perform more than 200 shows a year that have helped raise millions of dollars.
“It feels good to be able to provide quality entertainment and create memories that the fans will take with them,” said Dale Moss, Ambassadors president. “We’re able to give even more when we can help provide funding for a Habitat for Humanity house or new computers for a school library, and that feels great.”
Tickets are on sale at Waupaca High School, Waupaca Area Chamber of Commerce, First National Bank, Farmers State Bank, Bay Lake Bank and from any Waupaca Rotary member.
Advance tickets cost $5 for students and $9 for adults. Tickets at the door cost $7 for students and $11 for adults. Children under age 5 are admitted at no charge.
