Trick-hoops, alley-oops and a unique version of comedy, athleticism and entertainment are set to hit the Mt. Olive High School gym on Wed., April 6, at 7 p.m. The Harlem Wizards, a flashy, awe-inspiring, pro basketball exhibition team, will take on the “Moore’s Marauders,” a team of Chester M. Stephens (CMS) Elementary teachers, staff, parents and community leaders led by Kevin Moore, CMS principal.
This is family entertainment, comedy and fun and a chance to come out and support CMS. The Wizard’s mix of comedy and athleticism inspires as well as entertains. Bring the family and enjoy a full night of crazy basketball antics, close to home.
The evening is a fundraiser for CMS with all profits netted to go back to CMS classrooms. The Chester M Stephens School Community Association is planning to purchase a 3-D printer and 20 mini iPads for the school media center to allow exploration of 3D printing, from design to production, as well as demonstrations and participatory access. CMS-SCA will also be able to provide financial grants for innovative educational materials, programs and technology to school instructors.
Refreshments will be available and Harlem Wizards souvenirs, basketballs, t’shirts will be sold. There will also be giveaways, prizes, raffles, audience participation and a chance to meet the players. The Wizards promise to stay after the show until every autograph is signed.
Advance Tickets are $10, students; $12, adults; $20 reserved; and $30, courtside plus. To purchase online, go to https://www.harlemwizards.com/schedules. An in-person ticket sale at CMS is set for Wed., March 9, from 6 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for questions.
