March 12, 2012

All proceeds will go to the Center's general fund.

Fans of the March Madness NCAA basketball tournament can fill out brackets and raise funds for the Hutchinson Center at the same time. Brackets for Hope is a new website created by a group of Center supporters in Wisconsin as a fundraiser for cancer research. The site has already raised $5,000 for the Center.

Here's how you can participate in Brackets for Hope:

  • Visit www.bracketsforhope.org through Thursday, March 15
  • Fill out your NCAA tournament bracket and you'll be entered to win generous prizes. Then, make a donation on the site via PayPal (no donation necessary to win).
  • Tell your friends, family and colleagues to play as well!

All donations will go to the Center's general fund.

Brackets for Hope is the brainchild of basketball fans who wanted to do something meaningful with their customary annual celebration of the NCAA basketball tournament. Visit Brackets For Hope on Facebook and Twitter; watch the Selection Sunday TV commercial at http://vimeo.com/37531519.
