Harlem Wizards show sponsored by Shady Grove Home and School Association
AMBLER – The Harlem Wizards community basketball event is coming to Ambler.
The famed Harlem Wizards will visit Wissahickon High School on Wednesday, April 20 for an evening of fun and fundraising. The Wizards will play a game against a team of teachers, principals and community leaders from the Wissahickon School District. The event is a fundraiser for the Shady Grove Elementary School Home & School Association.
As well as cheering on their teachers, kids will be involved with a chance to step onto the field. Before the game, any child or teenager wearing a Wizards jersey can warm up with the Wizards. Throughout the game, audience members will be asked to volunteer in different contests and acts. And the final, late-night moments include an invitation to all students to come onto the grounds for a celebration of dancing with wizards.
The event will feature a variety of fun interactive extras to complement the dazzling display of the art of wizarding hoops: pre-game “Wiz Kids” warm-up, contests, comedy, awesome slam dunks, audience participation, giveaways goods, and more. The game will conclude with the celebration of the wizards’ signature dance that will have parents and children moving to the beat.
“We are thrilled to welcome the Wizards back,” said Shady Grove Elementary School principal Dr. Jason Bialka. “Our event with them in 2019 was a huge success, and we look forward to more magic from Wizards!”
Founded in 1962, the Wizards have played more than 15,000 games across the United States and raised more than $25 million for schools and charities. The Wizards have also played in more than 25 foreign countries on six continents.
Ticket prices are as follows: General Admission/Door $15; Reserved/Advance $10; Court side Plus $40. Courtside Plus ticket holders receive front row seats and meet some of the Wizard players privately before the game for a meet.
