Last year, PPI staged a friendly bracket competition among its extended family, inviting hoop-heads worldwide to match their college basketball knowledge in one of the sport’s signature traditions. Though only bragging rights were on the line, contestants who made a donation were eligible for special prizes.
This year, PPI’s been invited to participate in a slightly different competition, and we’d like to open it up to all our fans.
19th Bar in Washington, DC, (the home of PPI’s upcoming Party for Peace) has put together its own bracket pool, with a charitable twist: half of all proceeds will benefit PPI! We’d like to invite all of you to join us. Here’s how:
Entry costs $20 per player, and 19th is expecting 30-50 participants overall.
First prize in the bracket gets 60% of what’s left after PPI’s donation ($180-$300), second place gets 30%, third place gets 10% and fourth place gets a $20 bar tab. (If you’re out of town, we’ll figure out a comparable prize).
If you are a DC local, you’ll get special deals during any tournament games you watch at 19th Bar, just for participating!
