Harlem Legends event to benefit Amanda Riley Foundation

The Harlem Legends will host a celebrity basketball show March 10 at Brookwood High School to benefit the Amanda Riley Foundation. Riley died of cancer in April, 2010, and the charity in her name helps other children as they battle cancer.

The 3 p.m. game will feature a group of local educators and community leaders, the Amanda Riley All-Stars, against the Legends, including former Harlem Globetrotters Michael Douglas, Tyrone "Hollywood" Brown, Larry "Shorty" Coleman, Elbert "Tree" Gordon and former professional athletes like former Atlanta Hawk guard Mike Glenn.

Admission is $10 in advance or $15 at the door. Children under 5 are admitted free. VIP tickets are $30 each or $50 per pair.

The Legends also will host a youth basketball clinic at 1 p.m. on game day. The clinic costs $25 per camper and includes admission to the game.

Tickets can be purchased at www.amandarileyfoundation.org under the "Store" tab.
