The Harlem Wizards basketball team hosted a charity basketball game at Coppin State University on June 13. The team entertained fans of all ages with their hilarious humor and world class tricks. The event was held to benefit Carver High School’s JROTC (Junior Reserve Officer Training Corp.) program and the Alliance for Career and Education’s STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) initiatives. ACE, a Maryland-based nonprofit, provides high school students and adults the tools and skills they need to transition to college, careers and independence. There were over 14 area schools that attended including 450 students from City Springs Elementary/Middle School. Event sponsors included Klein’s ShopRite supermarket and Zenedge Energy Drinks.
