The internationally-acclaimed Harlem Ambassadors will be visiting Cave City for a game at Cave City High School on Nov. 18 at 7 p.m.
The Harlen 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 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 Cave City's event the Ambassadors have partnered with Spring River Adult/Child Services to help raise funds for domestic violence awareness and prevention.
The Ambassadors have worked extensively with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Boys and 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."
