NCAA Bracket Fundraiser – March Madness is approaching!
Selection happens on Sunday, March 17th. We will hold the church pool again this year. There will be a $5 entry fee and the winner will choose which charity will receive the pool monies. So far we have given away a total of over $1600 with this annual charity!
To enter simply fill out a bracket and turn it in to the church office between Sunday, March 17 and 10:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 21 with the $5 entry fee and your chosen charity. Brackets will be available in the church office or you can print your own. Please either include cash, or make the check payable to Grace Lutheran Church with NCAA in the memo field. You could also scan your bracket and send it to [email protected]
With no clear favorite to win this year, we will again use a scoring system with added points for the Final Four to keep things exciting. The “First Four” games will not be included. Those correctly predicting that a First Four team wins in the round of 64, even if the wrong First Four team, will receive the point. Then the round of 64 teams will be worth 1 point each with bonus points for upsets (difference between seeds). Round of 32 will be worth 2 points, round of 16 will be worth 4 points each. The following rounds will be worth 6 points, 10 points, and then 15 points for the correct Champion.
