Wizards player Space Jam gets the crowd going!

The Harlem Wizards, known for their electrifying performances, showcased their skills in an intense basketball clash against the Farmingdale ‘Dalers at Farmingdale High School on March 5, 2024. With the backing of the Farmingdale Council of PTAs, a dedicated team of staff and administrators faced off against the Wizards in an exhilarating match that kept the audience enthralled. From impressive dribbling to breathtaking slam dunks, the game was a delightful spectacle that filled the gym with laughter and cheers.

Behind the scenes, Francine Hassett and the Farmingdale Council of PTAs worked tirelessly to ensure the event’s success and their hard work paid off with a record-breaking 800 tickets sold. The funds raised will go a long way in supporting the Council’s initiatives, from organizing family-friendly events to providing scholarships for deserving seniors and offering training programs for the PTA.

Allison Palazzo, the Council President, expressed her gratitude for the overwhelming community support that made the event possible. “The Council was so happy to host a special event that brought the whole community together. Seeing so many families enjoying themselves and cheering throughout the game was amazing. We are so grateful to the volunteers and the community for supporting the PTA.”
