Published: Friday, Oct. 12, 2012 5:30 a.m. CDT

HUNTLEY – The District 158 Education Foundation will conduct a fun-filled fundraising event Oct. 20 where the world-famous Harlem Wizards will challenge the D158 Shooting Stars, featuring teachers, staff, administrators and coaches as players and cheerleaders.

The event begins at 6 p.m. in the gymnasium at Huntley High School, 13719 Harmony Road, Huntley. Doors open at 5 p.m.

Often compared with the Globetrotters, the Harlem Wizards provide comedy in addition to treating basketball aficionados to great skills, teamwork, slick dribbling, alley-oops and crazy slams.

The non-hoop fans attending will find that this is much more than a basketball game.

All proceeds from the event will benefit the children of School District 158.

Tickets cost $10 each, or $12 at the door. Children 3 and younger are free.

Advance tickets can be bought at any District 158 school office or by mail (download an order form on the District 158 Education Foundation webpage at
