For this year's March Madness, join the Rotaract Club of Chicago’s Third Annual March Madness Bracket Fundraiser. Over the last two years we have boasted large payouts for the top three finishers and we have done it all while raising money for great causes around the world.Half of your entrance fee will go into the winners’ pot which will be split as follows:
• First Place: 50% of the pot
• Second Place: 30% of the pot
• Third Place: 20% of the pot
The other half of the entrance fee will benefit the Rotaract Club of Chicago's service projects including a high school scholarship for a student in Belize and a Habitat for Humanity project in Chicago. We will be using the CBS bracket platform, all tiebreaker rules will be based on the default CBS bracket, in the event tie still persists the appropriate revenue will be split evenly between parties, eg. if there is a tie for first place 80% of the pot will be shared between those who tied, if there is a tie for second place, 50% of the revenue will be shared.
