GJ Mann School and Fidelis Care present the Harlem Wizards, returning to Niagara Falls for a benefit basketball game against a team of Niagara Falls School District teachers and administrators. The game will take place at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 25, at the Niagara Falls High School gymnasium.
A press release stated, “It is a spectacular, family-oriented evening of entertainment featuring not only top-flight basketball, but also Globetrotter-like tricks, music, dancing and general wackiness. A capacity crowd was thrilled last year, with the entire crowd on their feet and dancing on the gym floor at game's end. This year's event promises more of the same, only bigger and better.”
Tickets are $6 in advance or $7 at the door. Front-row reserved seats are $15 and include a free squishy basketball (can be picked up at the door). For the most up-close, personal and intense Wizards experience, courtside-plus tickets are $25 and include on-court seating, a 10-minute meet-and-greet with the Wizards before the game, a free Wizards lanyard, a free team photo and a $10 discount on a Wizards replica jersey. With any jersey purchase, a child can participate in the "Wiz Kids" event, which allows them to be introduced with the Wizards, take part in a 15-minute pre-game warm-up with the Wizards, as well as march in the Wizards' grand entrance, and get their photo taken with the team.
Courtside-plus tickets are extremely limited to just 50 seats, and are only available online at https://harlemwizards.thundertix.com/events/147845 or http://www.harlemwizards.com/schedule-tickets/. Tickets will also be available at select Niagara Falls-area schools beginning Sept. 23.
