Kennett Square >> Kennett Consolidated School District teachers will play the Harlem Wizards on Saturday, Feb. 10, 2018, at 6 p.m. in Kennett High School’s Reynolds Gymnasium. The Wizards are a performance basketball team delivering widely successful fundraiser events for schools and nonprofits, playing in over 400 communities across the US last season alone, while raising over $200 million. They are a unique basketball team that is not primarily focused on winning games, but rather entertaining the crowd with a variety of basketball tricks and alley oops.

What makes a Wizards show “awe-inspiring?” Some say it’s the oohs and aahs created by the thunderous, sky-high slams. For others, it’s the humor and seeing the teachers being good sports and having fun on the court with the Wizards. The comedy, audience participation, and spontaneity delivered as a world-class show all right in the high school gymnasium add up to a night to be experienced and treasured.

Advance tickets are $10 for students and $12 for adults and can be purchased online at HarlemWizards.com. Tickets can also be purchased by emailing requests to khsminithon2018@gmail.com or calling 610-444-6617. Depending on the volume of advance sales, some tickets may be available at the door, $12 for students and $14 for adults. All proceeds benefit Kennett High School’s MiniTHON, a club based on Penn State’s THON that fundraises to support Four Diamonds, an organization dedicated to funding research for childhood cancer and helping afflicted families with the cost of treatment. For more information about MiniTHON and how to donate to the cause, visit www.khsminithon.org.

The Kennett High School MiniTHON committee is hopeful that the whole Kennett community will come together for one great night on February 10. Doors open at 5:00 pm!
