Hoops and hijinks are coming to Granby, Colorado on Thursday, April 21, 2016 when our very own local challengers, the Grand County Blazers, take on the Harlem Ambassadors in a comedy basketball show the whole family will enjoy. The doors open at 6:00pm and the show starts at 7:00pm at Middle Park High School.

Proceeds from the event benefit Grand Futures Prevention Coalition to raise money for developing new and enhancing existing programs.

The Harlem Ambassadors offer a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball, featuring highflying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks, hilarious comedy routines, music, dancing and games for the kids.

“We have scoured both ends of Grand County for skilled – and sometimes unskilled – players to take on the powerful Ambassadors,” said Kacey Beres; Jubilee Events. “What our team lacks in skill, they make up for in heart. Buy your tickets today and you’ll be able to cheer on our enthusiastic local talent including Dustin Morrow from East Grand School District, Trevor Lee, Guidance Counselor at West Grand School District, Jim Kraker from the Granby Police Department and Christy Horn will be our only female player.”

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. Visit to learn more about the company’s history and current tour.

“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 Ambassadorspresident Dale Moss said. “Every Harlem Ambassadors game is one-of-akind because the Ambassadors play against local competitors. It’s a night filled with laughter, comedy and slam dunks, all to benefit the local community.”
