April 20, 2012 is the night. Neuroworx and the Wheelin’ Jazz are pleased to announce the upcoming 4th Annual Celebrity Wheelchair Basketball game. This year’s game will be bigger and better than ever. There will be an iPad raffle, prize give-a-ways, a silent auction, (including an opportunity for a member of the crowd to join the Wheelin’ Jazz or the Celebrity team on the floor for one quarter), PLUS you will have the opportunity to help your favorite team win as we have hired a scorekeeper of questionable character that will take bribes.
