THE HARLEM AMBASSADORS TOUR IS COMING TO FORT MADISON, IOWA
Hoops and hijinks are coming to Fort Madison on September 23 when our very own local challengers, the Fort Madison Dream Team take on the Harlem Ambassadors in a comedy basketball show the whole family will enjoy. The show starts at 7:00 pm in the Fort Madison High School Gym (Hound Dome).
Proceeds from the event benefit Fort Madison Bloodhound Athletic Booster to raise money for Richmond Stadium Improvements.
The Harlem Ambassadors offer a unique brand of Harlem-style basketball, featuring high-flying slam dunks, dazzling ball-handling tricks, hilarious comedy routines, music, dancing and games for the kids.
"We have scoured the region for skilled – and sometimes unskilled – players to take on the powerful Ambassadors," said Bernie Holtkamp. "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 teachers, principals, businessmen and coaches."
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. The Ambassadors have appeared at Pearl Harbor, Bosnia, Kosovo, Sarejevo, Korea, Japan, the Marshall Islands, Guam, the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Georgia, Mexico, Germany, England and Canada.

“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 Ambassadors president Dale Moss said. "Every Harlem Ambassadors game is one-of-a-kind because the Ambassadors play against local competitors. It's a night filled with laughter, comedy and slam dunks, all to benefit the local community."Tickets are on sale at Fort Madison High School, FM Hy-Vee, FM Chamber and Lee County Bank.
