Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Marian Catholic High School’s Leadership Center is the site for the eighth annual “Marian Madness” NCAA Tournament celebration on Saturday, March 27. The event will feature two men’s NCAA Elite Eight contests from Syracuse, N.Y. and Salt Lake City, Utah on five 60-inch plasma screens.

“It’s a very good opportunity to get together with fellow alumni and friends while watching some great basketball games,” according to committee member Ed Ziltz ’80. “For the price, it’s well worth it for the fun and to see so many people. There will also be outstanding food, great silent auction items and an opportunity for everyone to go home a winner.”

Tickets for the event are only $25 and feature unlimited food and drink, as well as loads of fun. Marian Madness is co-sponsored by the Alumni Association and Marian Athletics, and will also feature a grand prize cash raffle, games of chance and several exciting silent auction items. The fund-raising and friend-raising event will benefit Marian Athletics. Doors open at 4:30 p.m. for those 21-and older.

Marian Madness can’t ensure the local flavor of a Big 10 showdown this year, but it can guarantee a great evening of fun and excitement for all.
