On Friday, May 6, Montgomery County Public Schools Superintendent Dr. Mark Miear will trade in his signature bow tie for a blue and gold basketball jersey. The Harlem Wizards are coming to town to take on The MCPS Mortals, an All-Star cast of Montgomery County Public Schools educators and community leaders. Proceeds from the game will benefit the Montgomery County Educational Foundation. Doors open at 6:00 p.m. and the game starts at 7:00 p.m.
Hosted by the Montgomery County Educational Foundation (MCEF), the evening promises to be an outrageously entertaining event that is great for audiences of all ages. The “Wizards vs. Mortals” game will offer a fun-packed two hours of family time where parents, grandparents and kids of all ages can laugh together. The Harlem Wizards are known to utilize their unique mission to “create awe-inspiring events throughout the country” as they entertain fans with amazing basketball talent combined with hilarious comedy. When you’re in the stands at a Wizards game, you’re more than a spectator; you’re part of the show with loads of audience participation. Throughout the game, fans will experience a magical display of tricks, coordinated ball handling, fancy passing and aerodynamic athleticism combined with high-energy comedy and audience interaction. This experience can only be summed up in one word: Awe-Inspiring!
