Humor, hoops and high jumps
Harlem Ambassadors coming to Manawa
The Manawa Freedom Flyers will take on the Harlem Ambassadors at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Little Wolf Junior/Senior High School.
Event proceeds benefit Manawa Area Veterans Freedom Park to raise money for building a veteran’s memorial, splash pad, shelter house, handicapped accessible pier and playground.
“We have scoured the region for skilled – and sometimes unskilled – players to take on the powerful Ambassadors,” said Jamie Lane. “What our team lacks in skill, they make up for in heart. It’s going to be match-up we won’t soon forget.”
The Harlem Ambassadors’ show features high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks, hilarious comedy, music, dancing, games with childrens in the audience, plus free autographs after the show.
The Harlem Ambassadors have performed more than 2,800 comedy basketball shows as fundraising and community entertainment events for non-profit organizations, the U.S. military and community service groups since 1998. These events have helped raise over $10 million for communities in 50 states and 20 countries.
The Ambassadors have appeared at Pearl Harbor, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sarejevo, Korea, Japan, the Marshall Islands, Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Georgia, Mexico, Germany, England and Canada.
“We’re proud to give communities quality family entertainment that parents, grandparents and kids can enjoy together and make memories that last a lifetime,” Harlem Ambassadors President Dale Moss said. “Even people who aren’t basketball fans love our show because it’s two hours of fun and laughter for a great cause. Plus, where else can you see your neighbor, your co-worker, your granddaughter’s coach or your son’s teacher play against professional athletes? This is an event you do not want to miss.”
Tickets are on sale at Winemaker’s Daughter, Carbon Freckle, Premier Community Bank (Manawa) and Smith’s Manawa Steakhouse or online at www.manawaharlem.eventbrite.com.
