Hoops for Hope: Join EGR's March Gladness!

"March Gladness" - taking the NCAA basketball tournament and turning it into a way to raise awareness and money for relieving global poverty. Here's how it works:

*Instead of an entry fee, there is a small donation ($10) per bracket

*Along with your bracket(s), you designate a nonprofit (must be an official 501(c)3 whose work contributes to the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals) that you will be picking for.

*Instead of the winners taking home the pot, all money raised will be given to the designated MDG-related organizations.

Remember to complete your brackets before registration closes at tip off of the first game of Round 1 on Thursday, March 20.
