March Madness

All square reservations must be received by March 11th, 2018

Information:

How does it work? Just like Super Bowl Squares! The square you get will have two numbers, one for the Winning Team of each game and the other for the Losing team of each game. If the final score of any of the games played has your two numbers as the last digit of each of their scores, you win the payout for that game according to the round that is being played!

The Ry Guy Story

The Ry Guy Foundation was founded in memory of Ryan Baker, who passed away from Ewing Sarcoma in January of 2014 after a brave 18 month battle.  The foundation was formed to help raise money for Ewing Sarcoma and Pediatric Cancer research, which are dramatically underfunded in this country.  Each year, less than 5% of Federal cancer research dollars are spent on pediatric cancer research despite over thousands of children dying from cancer each year and the incidence of childhood cancer increasing dramatically over the past 20 years.
