Press release from Christian Brothers Academy
For many, March is a time synonymous with school pride, college basketball, and bracket-style competition. With this in mind, Christian Brothers Academy launched the school’s first ever bracket-style tournament to raise funds for the school’s annual operating budget.
The “CBA March Madness Giving Challenge” pitted every graduating class in school history against one another. Alumni were prompted to “Accept The Challenge” and amass points through donating and rallying their classmates to do the same. Points were earned for both individual participation and cumulative donations by class, once they surpassed certain designated amounts.
During the week, alumni were kept in the loop with email and social media updates on class point totals. After the first 48-hour round, the top sixteen classes advanced, narrowing down each day to Friday’s final four classes. The Class of 1984 was crowned champion after Friday’s final four round, followed by the Classes of 1982, 2000 and 1979.
