TOURNAMENT NEWS
Welcome to the 2015 Sunshine Kids NCAA Basketball Pool. This pool has been in existence for a number of years now. If you are not familiar with it - here's a little background. The pool was started well over ten years ago as a pool between a few friends mainly for fun. As technology evolved, it became possible to put the pool online and include friends that were scattered all over the country. Eventually the pool grew through invitations to friends of friends, family, coworkers, etc.

As the pool grew, through my work I became involved with an organization by the name of the Sunshine Kids Foundation. The Sunshine Kids Foundation works with hospitals and kids across the United States that are going through cancer treatments. The more I learned about the foundation the more I wanted to help them in setting up activities for these kids. By then the pool had grown to several hundred players and the decision was made to donate 20 percent of the gross entry fees to the Sunshine Kids Foundation. The prize money remains a substantial amount and some money is raised for a great cause at the same time. It's not often that you can have some fun, the possibility to raise money for a good cause and have a good payday all at the same time. My company has just passed the $1,000,000 mark in monies raised for the Sunshine Kids!

Please feel free to invite family, friends and coworkers to join in this year's pool. Last year we had 401 players and it would be great to increase that number. Last year's prize money totaled over $8,000!!
