Harlem Ambassadors Coming to Blanco
“It’s not your grandfather’s basketball show”
Wednesday, October 12, 2011 • Posted October 13, 2011

The Harlem Ambassadors, known for their dazzling ball-handling tricks, high-flying slam dunks, and hilarious family-friendly comedy, will be taking on the Blanco All-Stars this January 26 in the Blanco High School gym.

“We’re looking at it from three perspectives,” said Marcy Westcott, vice-president of the Blanco Chamber of Commerce. “The opportunity to bring entertainment on a level that Blanco hasn’t seen before. In addition to raising money for our organization, we also are partnering with the Blanco Volunteer EMS in an effort to raise money for them. The majority of those funds will go to EMS. It’s also an opportunity for the Chamber to bring affordable, high-level, family-oriented entertainment to the community. It’s the type of entertainment that you’d typically have to travel to Austin or San Antonio to see. The Chamber is always looking for new and innovative things that we can do and we felt like this met all those criteria.”

The basketball-playing organization has partnered with groups across the country, and in several other countries, to help raise funds for non-profits by putting on a professional show basketball game. The show is fun for all ages, from the young ones in awe of the new tricks to older folks enjoying tried-and-true gags by the team.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Blanco EMS and Blanco Chamber of Commerce.

The Ambassadors will be playing a team of local Blanco residents, and there are still spots left on the Blanco All-Stars team! If you’re interested in finding out more, contact the Chamber at 830-833-5101.
