HARLEM AMBASSADORS Tonight at Raytown South


The internationally-acclaimed Harlem Ambassadors will be visiting Raytown for a game at Raytown South High School on January 18, 2013at 7:00 p.m..

 The Ambassadors set themselves apart from other “Harlem-style” basketball teams by working with local not-for-profit and service organizations and holding Harlem Ambassadors shows as community fundraising events. For Raytown’s event the Ambassadors have partnered with The Raytown Educational Foundation and Raytown Rotary Club to help raise funds for scholarships and grants.

The Harlem Ambassadors offer a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball, featuring high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks and hilarious comedy routines.  The Ambassadors will be playing the Raytown Trailblazers, an eclectic group of local leaders and celebrities, coached by former Raytown South High School basketball coach, Bud Lathrop. 

 The Ambassadors feature non-stop laughs and deliver a positive message for kids wherever the Ambassadors play. “At our shows, we want the kids to know that they’re part of our team too,” Coach Ladè Majic said. “We invite as many kids as we can to come sit on the bench, have a front row seat during the show, and get involved in all of the fun stuff we do.”

 The Ambassadors have worked extensively with organizations such as Habitat for Humanity, Boys & Girls Clubs, Big Brothers Big Sisters and American Red Cross as well as Rotary, Lions and Kiwanis clubs in communities throughout the U.S., and perform more than 200 shows a year. Those shows have helped raise millions of dollars – an accomplishment of which Ambassadors President Dale Moss is very proud.

 “It feels good to be able to provide quality entertainment and create memories that the fans will take with them,” Moss explained. “We’re able to give even more when we can help provide funding for a Habitat for Humanity house or new computers for the school library, and that feels great.”
