Sure, basketball is considered a winter sport but it always makes me think of warm weather and hot outdoor hoop in the driveway. Fun times. Well the event March Magic Hoopfest was created in that spirit. A bunch of people, a ton of basketballs, about 3 dozen hoops, some awesome skill stations and one good time.

A volunteer is there to help you because they care about the event, and you. How awesome is that?
