Birthday Surprise By Harlem Globetrotters Via the Harlem Globetrotters community program “The Great Assist”
The family of Dedanim Adams reached to the Globetrotters looking for help. Star players Buckets and El Gato will answer that plea on Wednesday, as they surprise Dedanim with lunch on his 5th birthday – showing off tricks, giving him gifts, and a treating the family to a fun-filled meal and a custom Globetrotters birthday cake. The pint sized Globetrotters fan will also receive VIP tickets to see the team at Oracle Arena this Saturday at 2 p.m.

Via http://www.GreatAssist.com, fans can submit stories to the Globetrotters and recommend a person or a cause that may be in need of a smile or their support – and the team will respond as often as possible.
