Bartow Lions Club, Cass High School to host Harlem Ambassadors

The Bartow County Lions Club is hosting the Harlem Ambassadors for a community basketball event on March 7th at 7:00pm at Cass High School. This is an event families can enjoy together. The Harlem Ambassadors are a traveling basketball troupe and their shows are always full of laughter, comedy, slam dunks, and high-flying hoops. Best of all, it is all performed for a good cause.

All funds raised from this event will go toward helping the local community with eye screenings, eye glasses, the Freedom Braille Trail and as well other local needs.

Offering a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball featuring high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks and hilarious comedy routines, the Harlem Ambassadors are a team of talented male and female basketball players that are drug-free, college-educated and positive in appearance. They are committed to giving their audience quality family entertainment and serving as positive role models for kids.
