Harlem Wizards to play in tourism council benefit

Game set for Saturday at W. Maryland College

March 05, 2000

The Tourism Council of Carroll County and the Harlem Wizards are partners again for a benefit basketball game at 7 p.m. Saturday at Western Maryland College.

This is the third year the council has been host to a benefit starring the Wizards.

The game pits the Wizards, including former NBA and college players, against a team of local personalities.

Coming back as on-court jester again this year is crowd favorite James "Speedy" Williams, who keeps the game moving and the opponents on their toes with his chatter and slapstick.

He will be joined by Arnold "A-Train" Bernard, a six-year member of the Harlem Globetrotters before he joined the Wizards last year, and officials who make every call, especially fouls, an unusual experience.

The team will be available to sign autographs after the game, and Wizards souvenirs will be available.

The Wizards will make a pregame appearance at 3 p.m. Saturday at Cranberry Mall, where tickets will be sold from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. in the food court.

Tickets are also on sale at outlets throughout Carroll County, including Boston Inn, Carroll County Regional Airport, Mount Airy Town Hall, Rohrbaugh's Charter Service in Manchester, Sylvan Learning Center in Eldersburg and Westminster, and Diane's Hallmark in Taneytown.

Advance tickets are $6. Tickets at the door are $8 for adults and $6 for children ages 5-12. Children age 4 and younger are admitted free.

Ticket information: 410-848- 1388.
