On May 26, at Veterans Park, Grand Island High School's Interact Club, with the help of the Grand Island Rotary Club, organized the Grand Island Flag Football Tournament to raise money for charity.

The event was organized by students Christopher Komin, Megan Karpie, Dominic Morrell, and Orendael Miller, along with the rest of the students who participate in Interact, a community service club at GIHS. Angelo Grande was the supervisor of the event from Rotary. Six teams of five high school students each participated in the event, and a team of five Grand Island High School teachers also played a game against the students. Overall, the event raised approximately $350, which will be donated to Grand Island's Neighbors Foundation.
