MARQUETTE — Fans can use the convenience of the internet, save money and help a fund associated with the Superior Health Foundation all at the same time with purchases of tickets for the upcoming exhibition of the Harlem Globetrotters in Marquette.

Their appearance takes place at 7 p.m. on Friday, April 19, at the Northern Michigan University’s Berry Events Center in Marquette.

The foundation’s Breast Health Fund will receive a portion of online ticket sales while families can save money by entering the promotional code SUPERIORHEALTH after selecting seats.
