Event Description

Join Me at Pizza House in Ann Arbor on March 19 & 20
for the 14th annual MHBB 2020!

March Hoops to BEAT Blindness 2020 will be held at Pizza House in Ann Arbor on March 19& 20, 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 all the games!



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 the days of MHBB, Pizza House will contribute 15% of dining and carry-out checks to March Hoops to BEAT Blindness! All you have to do is show up, dine, and use the special flyer!
NOTE: You must bring the flyer with you to Pizza House or mention BEAT BLINDNESS to your server - be sure to check your bill before you pay that Beat Blindness will receive the donation.
