Traveling hoops team to visit NU

Nevada Union’s Leadership Program is hosting their upcoming Harlem Wizards Trick Hoops and Alley-oops fundraiser set for 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday.

The Wizards bring a dazzling display of spectacular athleticism and slamtastic fun for the whole family. They will be playing against the home team, the Nuggets, consisting of teachers and administrators from Nevada Union and other local schools, as well as a couple of NU basketball players.

The proceeds from the fundraiser will be used to expand the leadership program at NU and bring leadership training to the programs at area junior high schools. Along with future leadership training programs, NU will also be hosting Wizards assemblies at local schools to build relationships, spread an anti-drug message and promote the game happening later that evening.

The event is sponsored by TJ’s Auto Spa.
