Grand Island, for the first time, will be part of the Gus Macker Tour. The Gus Macker 3-on-3 basketball event will be held Aug. 29 and 30 and will be located on Grand Island Boulevard.

With the event date quickly approaching, preparations are in full swing in and around the courts. Grand Island High School DECA is supporting the event with over 50 student volunteers. Students will be scorekeeping and working concessions.

However, more hands are needed. Any adults interested in volunteering should contact Cheryl Chamberlain at [email protected].

Registration for teams is now open. Individuals wishing to sign up for a 3-on-3 team should visit www.Macker.com.

Proceeds from the event will benefit the Wellness Institute of Greater Buffalo and Youth Advantage.
