Upcoming Events and Fundraisers

The second annual Hoops, Habits and Brackets event to benefit the St. Joseph’s Carmelite Home in East Chicago, Ind., will be held Monday, March 16, at the Halls of St. George in Schererville, IN.

Former Chicago Bulls and DePaul University basketball standout Dave Corzine and longtime Chicago sports radio personality Dan McNeil are among the featured guests, providing insight on the upcoming NCAA tournament, past tournaments, and perhaps the teams to watch this year.

The event begins at 6 p.m. with auction tables, raffles and an open bar. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., with the program to follow. Attire for the March 16 event is business casual, and attendees are encouraged to wear their favorite NCAA team shirt. Attendees will have a chance to bid on more than 50 auction items and enter other raffles.

Hoops, Habits and Brackets tickets are $125 per person and can be reserved by calling the Carmelite Home at (219) 397-1085. All proceeds from the event go toward the needs of the children at Carmelite Home.
