Roxbury, NJ (December 15, 2016) – With a game more concerned with fun than the score, the Roxbury All-Stars made up of more than 20 Roxbury educators took on the Harlem Wizards on Friday night at Roxbury High School to raise money for the Jefferson School playground.
The Jefferson Elementary School PTA sold over 900 tickets and raised $9,000 for this playground fundraiser.

Whether you are a PTO/PTA, an education foundation, a booster club, a junior class, a project graduation, or a non-profit, charitable organization, the Wizards can pump up your fundraising while providing an enthusiastic community building event.
Started in 1962 by New York sports promoter Howie Davis, and now celebrating 54 years of Wizardry, he envisioned a show and organization that would put a different spin on show basketball. The Wizards are a show basketball entity delivering wildly successful fundraiser events for schools and nonprofits, last season alone playing in over 400 communities across the USA, while raising over $2 million.
What makes a Wizards show “awe-inspiring” or as the kids and teens say, “off the hizzle?” Some say it’s the oohs and aahs created by the thunderous, sky-high slams. For others it’s the humor and seeing the teachers being good sports and having fun on the court with the Wizards. The comedy, the audience participation, the spontaneity delivered as a world class show, in an intimate and community setting adds up to a night to be experienced and treasured.
