Win tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters! (12/6-11:59 PM, 12/18)


Want to see the Harlem Globetrotters when they come to Fresno next year?

Enter our latest contest and that dream could become a reality. SaveMart Center has generously donated family 4-packs of tickets to the team’s January 13, 7 pm performance at SaveMart Center, and we’re giving them away!

Three fans/followers, one from each social media following, will win 4-packs of tickets. Another lucky winner will get to take home a 4-pack of tickets, plus a few extra surprises.

  1. Like or follow us on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram. 
  2. By 11:59 PM on Sunday, December 18, share a picture taken within a Fresno County Public Library branch that features a sports book or video available for checkout. The prizes are tickets to see the Harlem Globetrotters, but the item in your photo does not have to be basketball-related. Soccer, rugby, ping pong, curling, equestrian—take your pick! But there’s a catch: some part of the library branch must be visible in your photo. Please note: Because of legal and privacy considerations, we will not accept photos that show any people’s faces (faces printed on book or video case covers excepted from this stipulation).
