WHEN:

11:00 a.m.

WHERE:
John Muir Middle School’s Gymnasium
5929 S. Vermont Avenue
Los Angeles, CA 90044

WHO:
LAPD Chief Charlie Beck

Harlem Globetrotter “Big Easy Lofton,” a 7th season showman for the Globetrotters
LAPD Officers who make up the LAPD Basketball Team
Children and faculty from John Muir Middle School

WHY:
To demonstrate the true partnership between the Los Angeles Police Department and the Harlem Globetrotters and to support the message of the Globetrotters’ Cooperation, Healthy mind & body, Effort, Enthusiasm, and Responsibility, “C.H.E.E.R.”™ Program.

The “C.H.E.E.R.”™ program targets elementary and middle school aged students and involves Globetrotter players who incorporate their signature ball handling skills with character education.  The program encourages kids to care about their school and each other in efforts to prepare them for the challenges they may face as young adults.

Combining the important message of “C.H.E.E.R.”™, the Harlem Globetrotters and the LAPD will ultimately give students a well-balanced program that informs and entertains.  In addition, students will be provided tickets to the Harlem Globetrotters World Tour at Honda Center on February 18th; STAPLES Center on February 19th, and Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario on February 20th.

On Sunday, February 19, 2012, at 5:00 p.m., during the Harlem Globetrotter’s show at STAPLES Center, Chief Charlie Beck and the LAPD Basketball Team will take to the court after halftime for a fun “shootout” with the Globetrotters.
