TAHLEQUAH, Okla. (January 21, 2011) – Reasor’s presented 200 complimentary Harlem Globetrotters tickets to the Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club of Tulsa on Wednesday, January 19th. The Harlem Globetrotters will be trotting into Tulsa’s Center on January 22nd for two performances.

Harlem Globetrotter player Buckets Blakes made an appearance at Reasor’s to sign autographs and take photos with waiting fans.

“The Harlem Globetrotters are known as magicians of basketball,” said Jeff Reasor, chairman and . “We wanted to bring some of that magic to these kids by giving them the opportunity to go to the Globetrotters game.”

The Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club organization serves hundreds of children every year in the Tulsa, Broken Arrow, Sand Springs and Sapulpa areas. The organization provides character development, athletics, homework and tutoring, healthy habits, spiritual development and various other child focused programs.

“We are very thankful for the continued support of the Harlem Globetrotters, Reasor’s and Bank of Oklahoma,” said Greg Parker, Salvation Army Boys and Girls Club unit director. “Without organizations giving to so many kids throughout the Tulsa area, we would not be able to serve to the capacity that we are able. Thank you for your generous gift to serve so many children in the Tulsa area!”

For 85 tremendous years, the Harlem Globetrotters have thrilled audiences around the world with their fast-paced, high-flying basketball games. The “magicians of basketball” are an exhibition basketball team that combines athleticism, theater and comedy.
