109-Year-Old Grandma Visits School With Harlem Globetrotters for the Holidays

Playing 109-Year-Old Woman Parties With Harlem Globetrotters

Virginia McLaurin, a 109-year-old who danced with the Obamas at the White House for her 106th birthday, joined the Harlem Globetrotters as they visited a school in Washington, D.C., this week.

It was a walk down memory lane for McLaurin, who used to volunteer at the Roots Charter School. She’s also spent her last three birthdays with the Harlem Globetrotters.

The basketball team and McLaurin, who is lovingly known as “Grandma Virginia,” paid a visit to the school to throw a holiday party for students. 

Mclaurin even sang for students while she was there.

The grandma turned 109 in March and received a Globetrotters jersey with No. 109 and 109 basketball tickets to Globetrotters games.
