Harlem Globetrotters offering free tickets to furloughed government workers

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- The Harlem Globetrotters announced Tuesday that U.S. government employees currently on furlough can get complimentary game tickets.

The Globetrotters are currently on their 2019 Fan Powered North American tour, which plans to play three games in Houston.

"As the ambassadors of goodwill, we want to show our support to all those government workers whose paychecks, and by extension their familes, are directly impacted," said Globetrotter President Howard Smith.

Government employees on furlough can show their valid government ID at the box office and receive two free tickets while supplies last. But those seeking their complimentary tickets better hurry, as the offer is only valid during the current government shutdown.
