A charity basketball game scheduled for Patterson High School this weekend that was to include former Harlem Globetrotters' "Clown Prince of Basketball" Meadowlark Lemon has been postponed until next fall.

Patterson City Parks and Recreation Director Adrienne Chaney, a spokeswoman for the event, says the game, initially scheduled for Saturday, April 28, was postponed because of scheduling conflicts.

In addition to Lemon, the set was to include Harlem All-Stars' Les “Pee Wee” Harrison and TyRone “Hollywood” Brown, among others.

According to an earlier press release, the game was also going to feature a team of local celebrities such as representatives from Patterson High and special guests, including Patterson Mayor Luis Molina.

A portion of the proceeds from the event would have gone to the Center for Human Services’ Patterson Teen Center, a local hub for youth activity and community engagement.
