Laurelhurst Elementary's Unicycle Juggling Team To Perform At Storm's Half Time On Thursday

Uni-Jug Team at UW Performance

The Laurelhurst Elementary Unicycling and Juggling Team, called Uni-Jug “A” Team, has been invited to perform during halftime of the Seattle Storm women’s professional basketball game, the reigning 2010 WNBA Champions, on Thursday at the Key Arena.

Ths is a very exciting event for the Uni-Jug as this is first time the team will have a chance to perform at a Storm halftime.  The team has performed at UW Husky men's and women's basketball games, Roosevelt and Garfield high school games, and at other venues for years.

The information for the event says, "Come watch fine athletes perform amazing feats of skill -- and also see a great basketball team play!  Please plan to join us, watch the kids’ performance and support the team. Bring your family, friends and neighbors."

Dave Glazer, a volunteer parent of former Uni-Jug Team members, is coordinating the sale of tickets through an arrangement with the PTA.

He tells us that members of the Laurelhurst community are very welcome to come watch a great game and halftime show. 

Tickets can be purchased at a deep discount for only $15 a seat for tickets which are usually priced at $34. Contact David at glazko2@comcast.net to purchase tickets. The last update from Dave was that they are looking to sell more tickets to make the Storm-required minimum, with more than 100 tickets still available.

Dave says, "Your financial participation helps families in our community as well as provides more fan support for the Storm and our very own, fabulous Uni-Jug Team."
