In the Greenwich March Madness Bracket contest to benefit Ukraine

GREENWICH, CT — To celebrate March Madness this year, IN Greenwich has brought back its annual “IN Greenwich Madness” basketball contest, and even added a second Sweet 16 bracket.

In 2017, Craig Jones and Jessica Reid, business partners of Greenwich Point Marketing, launched IN Greenwich as part of a project to organize and promote the events that take place in Greenwich.

In years past, the contest was free to entrants with many prizes donated by local businesses awarded throughout the tournament. This year, however, there is a suggested donation of $20 per installment, which will go to a GoFundMe campaign that will help provide direct funds to Ukrainians to buy needed food, medical care and emergency support services. .

The campaign was launched by Dr. Inna Lazar, former Miss CT USA 2017 Olga Litvinenko and Sasha Glavatskaya, all of Greenwich. Find additional information here: bit.ly/USA-for-Ukraine

IN Greenwich co-founder Jessica Reid is excited for another year of the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament, but especially thrilled that the contest is encouraging donations.

“We’ve always wanted to combine this competition with a fundraising effort and raising money that will directly help Ukrainians is the perfect fit,” Jessica said in a press release. “The only thing that can add more excitement than fundraising and having a winning board is having your school/alma mater in the tournament. Go UCONN!”

For larger donations, IN Greenwich also offers March Madness contest sponsorships which will include the sponsoring company in all advertisements, individual social posts and a listing on their website.
