FRIDAY FAMILY FUN – Oct 25th
SEE THE HARLEM WIZARDS TAKE ON THE BROCKTON BULLDAWGS AT BHS
The community is invited to take part in a great night of basketball wizardry as the world-famous Harlem Wizards take on the Brockton Bulldawgs, a team of Brockton teachers from across the city, on Friday, October 25th. The game is sure to provide an evening of family fun and entertainment, and all proceeds will benefit programs sponsored by the Davis School PTA.
“This is going to be such a fun night for Brockton families – the Wizards put on a great show. You will see the players doing all of their crazy tricks and engaging with our hometown team and the kids in the audience will get to take part in a half-time audience participation piece that is so much fun,” said Davis School Principal Darlene Campbell. “The great piece is that all of the proceeds will benefit kids in Brockton.”
The Wizards show is known for sky-high slams and energy, fan fun, imaginative round ball tricks and inspiring basketball wizardry on the hardwood. Crazy slam-dunks, including unique three man alley-oops, will captivate those seeking world-class basketball excitement. For those who are not huge basketball fans, the spontaneous humor and fun community vibe is certain to captivate their heart.
“Our goal as a PTA is to support and enhance classroom learning by helping to fund field trips and guest speakers, and also to increase family participation in our school,” said Davis School PTA President Denise Bert. “The Wizards game does both – it gives families a great night of fun and entertainment, and all of the proceeds will benefit programs supported by the PTA. This is truly a community event, and we hope that parents from across the city will bring their children out for a great night for Brockton.”
The game includes an audience participation half time show and free autograph session at the end of the game. Tickets are $8 for Students, $10 for Adults in advance and $2 additional at the door. Buy tickets online at www.harlemwizards.com, in person at Bernardi Hyundai, Rock Reunion Clothing, or Brockton Main Public Library.
Founded in 1962 by New York Sports promoter Howie Davis, and now celebrating their 51st year, the Wizards organization puts a different spin on show basketball by putting on a great show while helping schools raise much-needed funds to benefit classroom learn. This season alone, the Wizards will take part in 150 celebrity basketball games and help raise more than $150 million for school across the country.
