Slam dunks and smiles at the Harlem Ambassadors basketball show fundraiser, this Friday to benefit local charities

Harlem-Ambassadors-logoThe internationally-acclaimed Harlem Ambassadors will be visiting Pittsburg for a game at Pittsburg High School on Friday, May 10, 2013 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 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 Pittsburg’s  event  the  Ambassadors  have  partnered  with  the  Center  for Human  Development  and  Antioch Rivertown Jamboree to help raise funds for the youth and families of East Contra Costa County.

The Center for Human Development (CHD) is a community-based organization that offers a spectrum of services for at-risk youth, individuals, families, and communities in the Bay Area.  CHD staff deliver programs addressing wellness and prevention, youth leadership, conflict resolution, parenting skills and other challenges facing the community. East Contra Costa programs include African American Wellness, Empowerment, Four Corners, Project SUCCESS, and Youth Nutrition Advocates.

Antioch Rivertown Jamboree is a non-profit organization with a primary goal of conducting public celebrations and events to make the public aware of and enjoy the benefits of the City of Antioch and the Rivertown District. All profits are contributed to various local non-profit organizations

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.

It feels good to be able to provide quality entertainment and create memories that the fans will take with them,” Moss explained. “We’re able to give even more when we can help provide funding for a Habitat for Humanity house or new computers for the school library, and that feels great.”
