USO of Indiana has been selected from more than 2,128 charitable organizations across the country to compete in Brackets For Good 2018. Starting Friday, March 2, USO of Indiana will rally supporters to advance in an online single-elimination bracket-style fundraising tournament.
Donations from the Brackets for Good tournament will go toward the five hospitality centers and outreach programs the USO of Indiana operates throughout the state of Indiana such as the Bob Hope Legacy United Through Reading Program. The Camp Atterbury USO Center has room dedicated to the Bob Hope Legacy United Through Reading program where USO volunteers video record service members reading a book to their children. The book and the recording are then mailed to the service member’s family. Part of the USO mission is to keep our service members connected to their families. Through the Bob Hope Legacy Reading Program, the USO of Indiana can provide our military families a way of connecting to their loved ones even when separated by 10,000 miles
“The USO of Indiana is very excited to have been selected to compete in Brackets For Good 2018. Military service members love sports and Brackets For Good creates the enthusiasm of a live sporting event in a fundraising style tournament. We are so appreciative to the team at Lenex Steel Company for stepping forward as our Community Teammate for the second consecutive year to rally support for the USO of Indiana,” said Charles Ridings, Executive Director.
