The Sacramento Community’s Back to School Festival and its first 3 on 3 Basketball Tournament was a slam dunk.
Sacramento's volunteers — Florence Foster, Xavier McKethan, Nancy Jones and Lisa Tarrance — worked as a team. David Doswell and his team of referees and scorekeepers, Charlene Sanders, Jeff Sanders, Aberr Tigabue and Naila Kamal took charge. Several parents of the models pitched in to arrange for practices and sizings.
