March Madness Bracket Challenge

March Madness Bracket Challenge

Supporting Ukrainian Refugees

The Rotary Club of Gainesville Foundation Inc. is organizing its first March Madness Bracket Challenge for the 2022 NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament.

This year, the proceeds of the challenge will be sent to Rotary International District 6970’s York Foundation for distribution to efforts supporting Ukrainian refugees.

All participants who donate $20 or more will be sent a 2022 March Madness Bracket. The winner of the bracket tournament will be deemed the 2022 Rotary Club of Gainesville Foundation Professor of Bracketology. 

Additionally, participants will be entered into a chance drawing for a $100 gift card to a great Gainesville restaurant. Your name will be entered into the chance drawing once for every $5 you donate. You do not have to fill out a bracket to be entered to win, as the two contests are separate. You do not need to be a member of Rotary to enter or donate.
