Harlem Wizards Fundraising Event

Oct 18, 2013

On October 11th, JEHH teamed up with the Northfield Mount Hermon School and its community to raise awareness and funds for the foundation.  Organized and inspired by both Jim Shea and Roy Huang, a team of nearly 100 volunteers hosted the Harlem Wizards in a charity basketball game that was a family fun event not to be missed.  This sold out event was enjoyed by over 700 people with over $20,000 being raised for JEHH.  Check out some of the pictures from the event!

Hogger of the Week, Roy (right) received this recognition for organizing last week’s Harlem Wizards fundraising event at Northfield Mount Hermon. Similar to the Harlem Globetrotters, this group travels the world performing exciting shows. This summer while they toured China, Roy served as their translator. The group and their sponsors were so impressed by Roy, they offered to fully fund a Wizards show at NMH. Roy decided to use the opportunity to raise money for a local charity with all the proceeds of the event. The game was a huge success for a wonderful cause and it never would have happened without Roy.
