To celebrate March Madness this year, IN Greenwich has brought back their annual “IN Greenwich Madness” basketball bracket contest and even added a second Sweet 16 bracket. Bracket entries for all the games close on Thursday, March 17th at 12:15pm EDT
The Sweet Sixteen bracket opens on Monday, March 21st at 8:00am EDT and closes on Thursday, March 24.
In years past, the contest has been free to participants with lots of donated prizes from local businesses awarded throughout the tournament.
This year there is a suggested donation of $20 per bracket towards a gofundme campaign that helps provide direct funds to the people in Ukraine to purchase food, medical care, and emergency support services needed.
This campaign was started by Dr. Inna Lazar, Olga Litvinenko Miss CT USA 2017 and Sasha Glavatskaya, all from Greenwich. Find additional info here: bit.ly/USA-for-Ukraine
March madness is known to be so thrilling because of the Cinderella stories, upsets and last-second finishes. IN Greenwich co-founder Jessica Reid is excited for another year of the NCAA men’s basketball tournament, but especially excited that the contest is encouraging donations.
“We have always wanted to connect this contest with a fundraising effort and raising funds that will directly help people in Ukraine is the perfect fit,” said Jessica. “The only thing that can add more excitement than both raising money and having a winning bracket is having your school/alma mater in the tournament. Go UCONN!”
For larger donations, IN Greenwich is also offering March Madness Contest Sponsorships that will include the sponsoring business in all publicity, an individual social posts and listing on their website.

Sweet Sixteen Bracket
You can also sign up for a second bracket contest, the Sweet Sixteen bracket that opens on Monday, March 21 at 8:00am EDT.
The idea for this March Madness Basketball Contest came to IN Greenwich co-founder Craig Jones a few years ago after the IN Greenwich elf and mensch, Vin and Bin, visited all over town in December.
“The elf and mensch were so popular that I knew we wanted another entertaining campaign around springtime,” Jones said. “March Madness was the perfect choice as most people already fill out brackets and this way there will be lots of chances to win.”
In 2017 Greenwich Point Marketing business partners Craig Jones and Jessica Reid started IN Greenwich as a project to curate and promote events happening in Greenwich.
