The Harlem Ambassadors Tour Is Coming To Kankakee
Hoops and hijinks are coming to Kankakee on Saturday, October 10, 2015 when our very own local challengers, the Habitat Hoopstars, take on the Harlem Ambassadors in a comedy basketball show the whole family will enjoy. The show starts at 7:00 p.m. at Kankakee Junior High School (2250 E Crestwood St, Kankakee).
Proceeds from the event benefit Habitat for Humanity of Kankakee County to raise money for providing safe housing in our community.
The Harlem Ambassadors offer a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball, featuring high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks, hilarious comedy routines, music, dancing and games for the kids.
The Harlem Ambassadors have performed more than 2,500 professional comedy basketball shows as fundraising and community entertainment events for non-profit organizations, the U.S. military and community service groups since 1998. These events have helped raise over $10 million for communities in 50 states and 20 countries. The Ambassadors have appeared at Pearl Harbor, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sarejevo, Korea, Japan, the Marshall Islands, Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Georgia, Mexico, Germany, England and Canada.

“We're proud to give communities quality family entertainment that parents, grandparents and kids can enjoy together and create memories that last a lifetime,” Harlem Ambassadors president Dale Moss said. "Every Harlem Ambassadors game is one-of-a-kind because the Ambassadors play against local competitors. It's a night filled with laughter, comedy and slam dunks, all to benefit the local community."
