2019 Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball Festival
Start Date: 8/17/2019 All Day
End Date: 8/18/2019
Event Description

An Indy Neighborhood in Need

In 2016, stakeholders in the River West neighborhood started a dialogue to bring a positive event to the area. Out of these conversations was born an idea – create a community basketball tournament that would both engage all age groups and generate profits to benefit neighborhood charities.

The Return of Gus Macker

The vision became a reality with the formation of the Gus Macker River West Classic 3-on-3 basketball tournament. This year’s event, played on courts centered around the intersection of West Michigan St. and King Ave., will take place August 17th and 18th, 2019. For over 40 years, the Gus Macker organization has hosted tournaments for players of all ages and skill level, partnering with community organizations to provide fun, family-oriented programming while also raising money for local nonprofits.

Hoops for Good

In addition to sponsoring low-income neighborhood youth teams through financial backing from local businesses, the tournament will equally distribute all profits among three charities servicing the near west side. By becoming a sponsor, not only will your organization be associated with one of Indy’s biggest summer sporting events, but you’ll also be helping to address the challenges faced by the River West neighborhood. Gleaner’s Food Bank, Christamore House, and Indianapolis Public Library are the official beneficiaries of this year’s Gus Macker event.
