Louisville, Ky. (Feb. 10, 2015) – Mayor Greg E. Fischer has proclaimed Feb. 10, 2015, as "Brackets For Good Bingham Greenebaum Doll LLP Day" in Louisville. This announcement comes as Brackets For Good and BGD will present the inaugural Tip-Off event for the Competitive Giving tournament later today.
BGD and Brackets For Good will celebrate this proclamation alongside event sponsors, supporters and local non-profits at the tournament Tip-Off event at the Foundry at Glassworks in Louisville this evening. The high-energy gathering will reveal the first round of match-ups, introduce sponsors and more.

“We’re thrilled to show our support of these very deserving organizations through our title sponsorship of Brackets For Good 2015,” said Louisville Office Managing Partner Mark H. Oppenheimer. “This is the first tournament of its kind in Louisville providing an exciting way for the community to learn about and support nonprofits in their own backyards.”
