We're WILD about March Madness! Join us for a little friendly competition while raising money for one of our favorite places in Akron!
We're hosting a virtual March Madness tournament to benefit the Akron Zoo. It's only $5 per bracket (up to 10 brackets). Fifty percent of the net proceeds raised will be donated to our friends at the Akron Zoo. From there, the winning bracket will receive 25%; second place will receive 15%; and third place will receive 10%. **Once you register and pay, you will receive an email with the link and password to our ESPN March Madness pool to set up your brackets. Brackets go live Sunday, March 11th but registration starts FEBRUARY 26th. Brackets must be filled out by Thursday, March 15th by noon.**
