…added March 18- following a couple inquiries, I am obliged to re-state that, yes, this contest is for real! No entry fee; win $500 for your Indiana-based, child-oriented charity if your Final Four bracket wins our pool.
And, you MUST add your bracket to the Wickliff Auctioneers pool on Yahoo (pool # and password below). If you don’t have a Yahoo account, you’ll need to create one, but it’s easy and free.
In honor of the Final Four culminating in Indianapolis this year, Wickliff Auctioneers is pleased to present our Final Four for Charity contest, via Yahoo Tourney Pick ‘Em, to benefit your favorite kids’ charity!
So, here’s the deal- there’s no cost to to enter, anyone can play (one bracket per user), and there’s no cash prize. But if you win, Wickliff Auctioneers will donate $500 to the child-oriented charity of the winner’s choice. If you are affiliated with a charity, invite your co-workers to play to increase your chances. If you have a favorite charity you’d like to support, let them know about the contest.
Here are the details: the organization must be a registered 501c or 501c3 and must be head-quartered in Indiana.
