Harlem Wizards are coming back for round two

Get ready Quitman: A high-flying, slam-dunking, rim-rattling basketball show is coming to town!

The world-famous Harlem Wizards will visit Quitman High School on Saturday, December 7 for an evening of great fun and fundraising. Game time is 7 p.m. Doors open at 6. The Wizards will play a game against a team of Quitman School District administrators, teachers, community leaders, and community members. Proceeds will benefit the Quitman Junior High PTO.

The event will feature a variety of fun interactive extras to complement the Wizards' dazzling demonstration of hoops artistry: Pregame "Wiz Kids" warm-up, contests, comedy, awesome slam dunks, audience participation, merchandise giveaways, and more. The game will conclude with the Wizards' signature dance extravaganza that will have the crowd on their feet!

"We are thrilled to host the Wizards again," says Sabrina Nixon with QJH PTO. "The last game was a huge success, and we look forward to more Wizards' magic!"

Founded in 1962, the Wizards have played over 15,000 games throughout the US that have raised over $25 million for schools and charitable causes. The Wizards have also played in over 25 foreign countries on five continents.
