Ambassador antics

B RACKETT M EMORIAL F OUNDATION D ONATIONS The Ambassadors wooed the crowd with their antics, tricks and outright amazing basketball skills! The All-Stars did their best but even when given a 20 point, or was that 30 points? added onto their score, did not stand a chance against this amazing group of worldwide performers! There was plenty of opportunity for crowd participation and the kids in attendance were able to have some fun on the basketball floor as well. It was clearly an evening to remember. The Harlem Ambassadors travel worldwide playing basketball, entertaining and promoting healthy activities as well as being role models to all. They all have "real jobs" in each their own fields but when they get North Central High School gymnasium was the sight of a fun-filled entertaining evening of basketball fun when the Harlem Ambassadors cruised into town. The evening of October 14th, the Powers-Spalding Lions club sponsored the event and the PS Lions "All-Stars" challenged the Ambassadors to a basketball duel.

on the basketball court, you can be sure you will have your share of more than your dollars worth of fun and entertainment. During the game, the PS Lions All-Stars soon found out they would do best not to shoot air-balls as the punishment for that was 5 push-ups in front of the crowd for each shot missed! Following the basketball game, the crowd was able to purchase photos, basketballs and apparel for souvenirs and the entire team was available to autograph purchased souvenirs or anything else that could be autographed! A huge thank-you goes out to the Powers-Spalding Lions Club for hosting this fun filled evening! and of course, also to the Harlem Ambassadors for bringing their talent, marvelous personalities and caring souls to our little neck of the woods here in the UP!
