Calling All Fans: Sign Up for Hoops Madness Today!

Join sports fans and fans of Children’s National alike for the 4th annual Hoops Madness as the First Round of the NCAA Tournament tips off on March 16. This year's event will be held at the Longview Gallery in Washington, D.C., from 7 pm - 10 pm. 

Hosted by the Children’s Health Board, the NCAA Tournament viewing party is an opportunity to network with like-minded fans and show your support for your home team pediatric hospital: Children’s National Health System. All funds raised will support innovative, high-impact community-based health programs that directly improve the lives of children in the nation’s capital and beyond.

In its first three years, Hoops Madness has already raised $380,000 to benefit Children’s National and the kids we serve.

“The funds we raise through the generous supporters at this event allow us to improve the lot for a vulnerable community of children,” says Hoops Madness Co-Chair Randy Jones Toll. “Plus, the attendees get to enjoy a magical, fun evening with Washington professionals and celebrities during the frenzy of the NCAA March Madness games.”

Emceed by Washington Wizards TV announcer Steve Buckhantz and former Bullets All-Star Phil Chenier, the evening’s lineup includes NCAA First Round Games on big screens, food and drinks, free valet parking, and both live and silent auctions of sports memorabilia and other exciting prizes!
