Come join in a night of family fun as KCSD teachers and administrators play the Harlem Wizards on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at 6:00 p.m. in Kennett High School’s Reynolds Gymnasium. The Wizards are a performance basketball team delivering widely successful fundraising events for schools and nonprofits, playing in more than 400 communities across the U.S. last season while raising millions of dollars. They are a unique basketball team that is not primarily focused on winning games, but instead on entertaining the crowd with a variety of basketball tricks and alley oops.
Tickets to last year’s Wizards game sold out quickly, and a sell-out is expected again this year. Advance tickets are $10 for students and $12 for adults; children under 5 are admitted free of charge.
This year there will be two methods to purchase tickets:
- Beginning Thursday, January 3, 2019, at 4:00 p.m., tickets can be purchased online at HarlemWizards.com.
- For families who prefer to purchase tickets using cash or check, there will be a limited window of opportunity to do so. These tickets will be available in the lobby of Kennett High School and can only be purchased at the following times:
- Thursday, January 3 and Friday, January 4 from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
- Saturday, January 5 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
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 raises funds to support Four Diamonds, an organization dedicated to funding research for childhood cancer and helping affected families with the cost of treatment. For more information about MiniTHON and how to donate to the cause, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Kennett High School MiniTHON committee is hopeful that the whole Kennett community will come together for one great night on February 9. Doors open at 5:00 p.m.!
