|All of the teams and results here are for the 2014 pool. Come back after the teams are announced on Selection Sunday (but before the tournament begins) to make your picks. It's going to be another great pool and we're looking forward to you joining in the fun for a great cause.|
Congratulations to the Huskies of Connecticut. The top four finishers in this year's pool are Philip Schriver with 287 points ($3,940), Mike H with 278 points ($1,970), Rob Paliotta 1 with 271 points ($1,182) and Fred Israel with 269 points ($788). The high pick percentage prize ($100) goes to Michael DiPrimo
Congratulations to Jack Donahue as well. Jack is the only player to have a team in tonight's final game. Unfortunatley it won't be enough to finish in the money with Connecticut's win but he has bragging rights!
Also thanks to everyone that paid their entry fees. We received four out of the five outstanding entry fees today and I heard from the sole outstanding entry during the game so we are 100%! Thanks!!
A sincere thank you to everyone that entered this year's pool. I hope you had some fun and enjoyed yourselves. Thanks for supporting a great cause. The Sunshine Kids donation will total almost $3,000 between the 20% from the entry fees and additionall donations. This money is going to be put to good use providing some great experiences for children going through cancer treatments in hospitals across the United States.
The NFL Football Season will be here before you know it. Watch for emails about the Sunshine Kids Survivor Pool.
Have a great summer everyone!
