  • Description

    In several poor areas of the United States, clubs where boys can take part in sport and other activities are only kept open by the famous American basketball team the Harlem globetrotters.

    The clubs' organisers would find it difficult to raise enough money to maintain the clubs without performances to capacity crowds by the Globetrotters usually give part of the entrance money to a community service -- and in the last three years they have earned 43,000 dollars for Boys' clubs in the inland Californian town of Fresno.

    Without the Globetrotters three Boys' clubs in fresno would not be able to exist.

    Many of the Globetrotters' players like Meadowlark Lemon from North Carolina admit they owe their successful careers to the Globetrotters -- and they are quite willing to repay the chance the Boys' clubs have earned them.
