Side by Side Brain Injury Clubhouse Hosts Basketball Event on March 10 To Raise Funds for Brain Injury Services

Shepherd Center will sponsor the annual event.

The Harlem Wizards are coming to Decatur High School, Saturday, March 10 at 7:00 pm for Jawbones vs. Sawbones vs. Harlem Wizards presented by The Resurgens Charitable Foundation. The evening promises to be a fun filled family event that is guaranteed to put a smile on your face! This event is hosted by Side by Side Brain Injury Clubhouse, the only nonprofit in Georgia dedicated to supporting adults living with brain injuries through a community-based partnership approach. Side by Side is bringing the Wizards to Atlanta to raise funds for brain injury services at Side by Side.

Shepherd Center has supported Side by Side Clubhouse since its inception in 1999 when the hospital helped start the nonprofit organization. Side by Side Clubhouse offers patients a supportive community to continue their recovery from brain injury after they have been discharged from the hospital.

The Harlem Wizards have a unique mission: create awe-inspiring events throughout the country. At a Wizards game, fans will witness amazing basketball talent combined with hilarious comedy. The event offers two hours of family time where parents, grandparents and children all can laugh together. When you’re in the stands, you’re more than a spectator -- you’re part of the show with loads of audience participation. Throughout the game, fans will experience a magical display of tricks, coordinated ball handling, fancy passing and aerodynamic athleticism combined with high-energy comedy and audience interaction. The experience can only be summed up in two words: awe-Inspiring!

Tickets purchased before the event are $15 for adults $10 for children. Tickets can be purchased online at Tickets will also be available on the day of the game at Decatur High School’s gym starting at 6:00 p.m. Tickets are $18 for adults and $12 for children.
