Bingham Greenebaum Doll Supports 2016 Brackets For Good Louisville and Indianapolis Tournaments as Returning Sponsor
INDIANAPOLIS (Feb. 9, 2016) - Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP is proud to once again be the title sponsor of the 2016 Brackets For Good tournament in Louisville, as well as a division sponsor of the 2016 Indianapolis Brackets For Good tournament. The tournaments will begin Feb. 26, 2016, with the final round concluding April 1. Last year, the BFG tournaments raised $571,383 in Indianapolis and $252,925 in Louisville for a total of $824,308.
Brackets For Good, which launched in Indianapolis in 2011 to raise awareness and money for local nonprofits, has raised more than $1.3 million for local charities since its 2012 kick-off contest. This year, BFG has expanded into three additional markets: St. Louis, Missouri; Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota; the fundraising tournament will also return to Louisville and Indianapolis.
“We’re honored to support Brackets For Good for the second consecutive year,” said Tobin McClamroch, BGD Managing Partner. “The mission of BFG’s fundraising tournaments reflects our firm’s commitment to the communities we serve and live in, and we look forward to the continued success and growth of the organization and tournament for years to come.”
Brackets For Good recently selected 64 nonprofits in each city to participate in the lineup. During the upcoming tournament, participants will compete to out-fundraise their opponents while earning increased exposure; one organization will win the title sponsor’s grand prize donation of $10,000.
The brackets will be revealed at each free tip off event in participating cities before the tournament begins at 8 p.m. on February 26. At the end of every round, the points for the advancing nonprofit agencies are reset to zero, but every dollar donated throughout the tournament is given to the participating nonprofits, regardless of advancement.
