March Madness Bracket Competition!

Soroptimist International of the Rittenhouse Square is a local volunteer club in Philadelphia, PA working to improve the lives of women and girls through programs leading to social and economic empowerment, such as the Live Your Dream: Education & Training Award Program that provides cash grants to help head of household women improve their education, skills, and employment prospects.

Our club is raising money for our operational fund to help defray the costs of travel to regional and international Soroptimist conferences so we can exchange ideas with other Soroptimist clubs and more effectively carry out our mission.

We’re excited to invite you to join our March Madness tournament! Your entry fee of $20 provides a $10 donation to our club’s operational fund, and the remaining $10 goes towards the pot that will be awarded to the entrant with the winning March Madness bracket. Sign up to participate now!

To enter, go to our CBS Sports page here: You’ll have to log in or create a new account with CBS Sports, and then enter the group information to join Soroptimist International of Rittenhouse Square’s March Madness tournament. Our group password is SIRS. Please sign up and create your account as soon as possible so that we know how many people are participating.

To pay your entry of $20, you may either provide cash or a check in person to a club member, or pay online here. If you pay online, be sure to include your name and email address in the notes section so we can verify that you have paid your entry.

Selection Sunday is March 13, and the tournament begins on Tuesday, March 15. That means you will be able to make your picks and set your bracket after the selections are announced on Sunday March 13, and BEFORE the games begin on Tuesday, March 15.

You’ll receive a reminder email when it is time to make your picks, but put it on your calendar right away! If you forget to complete your picks before the tournament begins, there will be no refund and your entry fee will be considered a donation to the club’s operational fund.

If you have not paid your entry fee by Tuesday, March 15, you will be removed from the contest and ineligible for participation. Please sign up and submit your entry fee as soon as possible if you wish to participate!
