Brackets for the Cure: Turn $20 into $1,000, help fight breast cancer

UntitledIn addition to our annual WFNY March Madness pool (which is free for all fans and readers), WFNY, in its ongoing efforts to give back to the Cleveland community, is helping promote a unique opportunity that comes in the way of Brackets for the Cure. Susan G. Komen’s Northeastern Ohio Affiliate is holding a March Madness challenge, sponsored by Tucker Ellis, LLP, that provides the entrants to turn their $20 tax-deductible donation into $1,000.

One-hundred percent of the donations will go to the Affiliate in their fight against breast cancer throughout the region. Brackets can be purchased here. You will, at some point subsequent to the donation, receive an email with a link and password to the CBS Sports-hosted challenge page. Complete and submit your bracket any time between Selection Sunday, March 16 and the start of the tournament on Thursday, March 20. Brackets must be completed no later than March 20 at 11 am to be eligible for prizes. Standings will be updated daily on the host site in addition to the Komen NEO Facebook page.

WFNY thanks you in advance for your support. Don’t hesitate to holler with any questions. Cheers!

    While I know little about the Northeast Ohio branch of this foundation, I would encourage anyone considering this to donate that money to a better charity fighting breast cancer – one that does not pay its CEO $700k, sue anyone who tries to use “for the cure” or ribbons, or withdraw funding for Planned Parenthood to give mammograms. Perhaps a small charity like Metavivor – http://www.metavivor.org/research/ – that actually gives most of the money they receive towards research.
