There will be 2 exciting events for March Hoops to BEAT Blindness this year!!

Bracket Science Night (March 18)

MHBB (March 20-21)

As a warm-up to March Hoops to BEAT Blindness 2014, there will be a special Bracket Science Night at The Wolverine State Brewing Co. on March 18, 6:30-9:30.

On this night, come out to hear the expertise of Pete Tiernan who will help you build a better bracket! A portion of proceeds from the night will be donated to MHBB!

March Hoops to BEAT Blindness 2014 will be held at Pizza House in Ann Arbor on March 20 & 21, 10:30AM - 4:00 AM.

On those days, Myron Hepner pledges to watch every single game of the first round of the NCAA Basketball Tournament. Over a two-day span, this represents a total of 32 full basketball games! Pizza House has several television screens throughout the restaurant, perfect for watching several games at once!


In exchange for the contribution of his time and efforts, donations are requested in support of research programs at the University of Michigan Kellogg Eye Center so other people who struggle with vision problems might also have a chance to enjoy watching sporting events! All proceeds go to specific research programs; visit This Year's Research Program to read about the research this year's event will support.


Several promotions are being held to encourage and provide opportunities for donations:


On Bracket Science Night, The Wolverine Brewing Company will contribute a portion of proceeds to March Hoops to BEAT Blindness!
