Meadowlark: One Night Only!

(NEW! See the invitation below for a sneak peek at our live auction items)

Meadowlark Lemon, the “world famous superstar of the Harlem Globetrotters,” will be Basketball Club International’s special guest at our Step Up Your Game event in Denver on Friday, October 26th. Michael Jordan said, “My fellow Wilmington, North Carolina native Meadowlark Lemon is a true national treasure. I watched him play for the Harlem Globetrotters when I was growing up and his skill with the basketball and dedication to the game were an inspiration not only to me, but to kids all around the world.”

BCI and Meadowlark hope you’ll join us for this evening of jazz, vision, and inspiration to benefit BCI’s community-level youth outreach initiatives. Together, we are changing the cycle of influence in professional basketball, connecting kids with players who lead by example through values, integrity, and faith. Are you game?

Lenny Wilkens observed, “[Meadowlark] has given back to the community quite generously in addition to serving as an outstanding role model for young people. Meadowlark's career has allowed him to touch people's lives everywhere and I am so proud to be his friend. God has certainly touched his life.”

Don’t miss BCI’s Step Up Your Game on Friday, October 26th!
