The Harlem Dreams are coming to town for the annual Unity Celebrity Basketball game this year on Friday, Oct. 23 at the Alberni Athletic Hall.

Jericho Road Church  youth pastor Harold “Lefty” Williams has invited an entire team of celebrities this year, who will play against a team of Alberni Valley celebrities.

The game is part of the Dare 2 Dream Initiative.

Williams, a former Harlem Globetrotter, will play for the Harlem Dreams. He said fans of the Unity game will be happy to see Roadrunner will be back, and Lynks is a former Washington General—the team that plays the Globetrotters.

Tickets cost $15 at the door. Kids three years and under admitted for free.
