The internationally acclaimed Harlem Ambassadors will be visiting Franklin for a game against the “Franklin Dribblers” at Franklin High School in the Panther Pit on Tuesday, March 11 at 7:00 p.m. 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 of “Stay in School – Stay off Drugs” for kids wherever they play. “At our shows, we want the kids to know that they are a part of our team too,” Coach Lade 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 Franklin’s event the ambassadors have partnered with The Franklin Chamber of Commerce and the Franklin High School Booster Club.
In addition to working with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brother, etc., they are proud to perform for U.S. military bases all over the world. The Harlem Ambassadors perform over 200 shows a year.
Players on the “Franklin Dribblers” team will be an array of familiar personalities from our local celebrities.
Advanced tickets are now available at the Franklin Chamber of Commerce and will be available at the door on March 11. Adult tickets are $8, students tickets are $5 and children 5 and under are free. Tickets are limited so be sure to pick yours up early at the Chamber.
