Smart Self Storage of Solana Beach, Calif., part of the 19-facility San Diego Self Storage (SDSS) chain, recently sponsored an appearance by the Harlem Ambassadors, a basketball-skills troupe that provides positive messages along with sports-based entertainment. Organized by the local Rotary club, the event was held on May 5 at Canyon Crest Academy in nearby Encinitas, Calif. Proceeds benefited the programs and services of the Canyon Crest Academy Foundation and the Boys and Girls Club of San Dieguito.
"SDSS is proud to sponsor this event, which not only highlights the athletic agility and camaraderie of the Harlem Ambassadors, but also serves to educate students on the importance of giving back, which is an integral component of this evening," said Sandra Flores, SDSS advertising manager. "SDSS is committed to supporting events in the communities we serve through charitable sponsorships that inspire and reward youth for their efforts. The Harlem Ambassadors are also a large provider of entertainment to the U.S. military, a segment that SDSS supports through numerous philanthropic projects and via a rental discount to all enlisted military members."
Offering basketball entertainment featuring slam dunks, ball-handling tricks and comedy routines, the Harlem Ambassadors are a team of male and female basketball players that are drug-free and college-educated. The Ambassadors work with nonprofit and service organizations, holding Harlem Ambassadors shows as community-fundraising events.
Founded in 1972, SDSS provides self-storage in Los Angeles, Orange and San Diego counties. The company is locally owned and operated.
