HARLEM AMBASSADORS TOUR MARCH 9 in FRUITA
TICKETS ON SALE/MESA COUNTY PARTNERS, CHILDREN TO BENEFIT
The internationally-acclaimed Harlem Ambassadors will be visiting Fruita for a game at Fruita Monument High School on March 9, 2013 at 7:00PM. Tickets are now on sale for $10.00 for adults. Children under-12, accompanied by an adult, are free of charge.
The Harlem Ambassadors offer a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball, featuring high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks and hilarious comedy routines.
The Ambassadors feature non-stop laughs and deliver a positive message for kids wherever the Ambassadors play. “At our shows, we want the kids to know that they’re part of our team too,” Coach Ladè 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 set themselves apart from other “Harlem-style” basketball teams by working with local not-for-profit and service organizations and holding Harlem Ambassadors shows as community fundraising events. For Mesa County’s event, the Ambassadors have partnered with the Kiwanis Club of Grand Junction to help raise funds for charitable organizations that benefit young children.
The Ambassadors have worked extensively with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers Big Sisters and American Red Cross as well as Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs in communities throughout the U.S., and perform more than 200 shows a year. Those shows have helped raise millions of dollars – an accomplishment of which Ambassadors President Dale Moss is very proud.
You can purchase tickets by logging onto the Kiwanis web site, or by contacting a Kiwanis Club member.
The local Kiwanis Club is donating tickets to Mesa County Partners, enabling youths who need assistance to attend the game for no charge.
