The internationally-acclaimed Harlem Ambassadors will visit Baker High School at 7 p.m. Nov. 20.
The Ambassadors offer a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball, featuring high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks and hilarious comedy routines.
The Ambassadors set themselves apart from other Harlem-style basketball teams by working with local not-for-profit and service organizations and holding shows as community fund-raising events. For the Baker City show the Ambassadors are looking to partner with local businesses to help raise funds for Baker County CASA, or Court Appointed Special Advocate.
