A group of students from the Case School of Dental Medicine is headed to the Dominican Republic in July for a week long mission trip. Please help support us by donating and having some fun with our 2014 NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge! More ...

Update: We will be accepting donations through April 7th! Unfortunately, donors can only join the March Madness Group if they donate before the tournament starts (March 20th @ 11am). Please email as soon as you donate if you want to join the Bracket Group!

What is our fundraiser for?

Seventeen students from the Case School of Dental Medicine will visit the Dominican Republic in July 2014 to provide important dental care including extractions of painfully infected teeth and preventative care for children and adults. We're incredibly excited for this mission trip and hope to provide as much care as possible in one short week!

Where do the donations go?

To provide free dental care, we need to purchase most of the medical and dental supplies, for which we are paying out-of-pocket. Some of these supplies include: gloves, masks, biohazard/trash bags, gauze, surgical gowns, local anesthetic, sterile needles, and disposable dental instruments as well as toothbrushes and toothpaste for patients. We greatly appreciate any and all support from our family and friends!

What's in it for you?

We're asking for a $10 donation, but please contribute more if you can! All donors who donate at least $10 will be invted to participate in our 2014 NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge and a chance to win up to $150! Of course, donors are not required to participate in the Challenge; the invitation is just our way of thanking you! Our own NCAA March Madness Bracket Challenge will be hosted on for all $10+ donors. If our $800 goal is achieved, cash prizes will be:

First place: $150   Second place: $100   Third place: $50

If we fall short of our $800 goal, the top three winners will split 35% of the total.

When should I donate?

Although Selection Sunday isn't until March 16, 2014, with your donation and email address today, we will notify you when it's time to fill out your bracket (March 16th)! 

How should I donate?

1. Simply click "GIVE" on the right hand side of the screen (credit card or PayPal).

2. Include your email on the donation page so we can thank you and contact you. The email will contain instructions showing how to join our private CBSSports bracket challenge and how to fill out a bracket (if you want to participate)!

3. Come March 16th, you'll pick your teams and hopefully win some cash!
