Gus Macker Looking for Some Assists!
46 years, 2.7 million players, Gus Macker still a hit in 2019. This all began when a teenager, Scott McNeal (aka Gus Macker) had an idea during the NCAA basketball playoffs. He thought it would be pretty cool to host his own March Madness in his family’s driveway, eventually coming up with the idea of hosting a 3-on-3 half-court tournament.
Little did Gus know at the time that event held on a driveway in Lowell, Mi. was about to start something that would become his life’s passion. And his life’s passion became the passion of 46 years worth of 3-on-3 basketball.
GUS MACKER OLEAN is back on the 2019 Schedule and a part of the 46 year festivities! Gus Macker 3-on-3 Basketball will be held in Olean August 16-18, 2019. GOACC anticipates having 250 teams and 8,000 spectators from a 100-mile radius to attend the 3-day event and see this as a great opportunity to showcase Olean. Last year, one hundred sixty two teams played with 648 registered players.
GOACC is looking for businesses and/or individuals to become sponsors in an event that will benefit the entire city of Olean. The sponsor form provides an overview of the opportunities and benefits of supporting the tournament, and proposes ways in which the local business community can become involved.
There are several in-kind sponsorships available as well. If you are a restaurant business, the event would love your gift cards in exchange for the cash to pay for the sponsorship level. Also, the event needs several items that your business may have in house or you may even sell them at your business. In exchange of the items, your business would receive a sponsorship level in the amount of the value of the donation. The items include cases of water bottles, cases of Gatorade, man-hours to scorekeep or to register; and sandwiches/subs or pizza to feed volunteers.
If you are a restaurant or a related retail store, there are vendor forms available to reserve your spot at the Macker.
Erica Dreher, GOACC Membership Coordinator, stated, “Please consider participation through a sponsorship or as a vendor that best meets your needs and be secure in the knowledge that your sponsorship fee will be used directly to manage this event with excess revenue being brought back out to non-profit organizations.”
Dreher added, “GOACC would like to thank its 48 corporate sponsors who have stepped up and funded the $10,000 tournament fee to Macker National for our 2019 event.”
