March Madness Bracket/3-on-3 Tournament, Date to be Announced

marchmadnessThe best way to distract yourself from Chicago’s never-ending winter is to get completely obsessed with the NCAA college basketball tournament, where early-round upsets and last-second victories keep you on the edge of your seat. Our March Madness Bracket fundraiser allows you to test your basketball knowledge and give back to the community at the same time. This year, we will be adding a special 3-on-3 basketball tournament giving you and your friends an opportunity to tip off against other Horizons for Youth supporters! More information will be available in early 2018.
