Harlem Globetrotters turn 90
Celebrating 90 years of providing smiles, sportsmanship and service to millions of people worldwide, the Harlem Globetrotters will bring their family show to Reno Events Center in Reno at 7 p.m. Jan. 12 during their 90th Anniversary World Tour.
The Globetrotters said they are giving back even more during their 90th year with The Great Assist program. Stars of the team will leave a mark in communities across North America with acts of goodwill during the tour that is set to play over 330 games in 260 cities.
Fans are encouraged to visit GreatAssist.com to nominate a worthwhile cause or a deserving family in need of a smile, and the Globetrotters will help as many fans as possible throughout the tour. In addition to fan requests, the team is planning to bring their bullying prevention program to more than 400 schools and community centers, talk to youth about character education and physical fitness, visit children’s hospitals and lend a hand to those in need.
On the court, the Globetrotters’ 90-year celebration will feature some of the greatest athletes and entertainers on the planet. With a star-studded roster featuring Big Easy Lofton, Ant Atkinson, Hi-Lite Bruton, Thunder Law, Bull Bullard and Cheese Chisholm – plus female stars TNT Maddox and Sweet J Ekworomadu – the Globetrotters’ one-of-a-kind show is unrivaled in the world of family entertainment. Every game will showcase incredible ball handling wizardry, rim-rattling dunks, trick shots, hilarious comedy and unequaled fan interaction. After the game, Globetrotter stars will sign autographs and take photos with fans.
