Special Events

Youth Challenge hosts a number of special events each year to help raise funds to support the mission. See below for more information and sponsorship opportunities.

Brats, Beer and Brackets @ Youth Challenge
Mar 19 @ 5:30 pm – 9:00 pm

Young Professionals for Youth Challenge (YP4YC) presents a Calcutta Style Auction for the NCAA March Madness Tournament…

Ages 21+

Tickets $25 in advance or $30 at the door (includes food and drink)

Buy Tickets

Bidding for teams will take place in a live auction event. Unlike traditional office pools where there are only a handful of winners, each winning team, per round, earns a portion of the pot for the owner of that team. You don’t need to pick the champion to win prizes!

Betting syndicates encouraged! Get together with friends and form a “team” to pool your money together to have more bidding power.

Sideboards and separate pools will be available at the event.

Proceeds benefit Youth Challenge and are split 50/50 between YC and the Bid pool.

Complimentary childcare will be available by YC teen volunteers, limited spots! Contact acompton@youthchallengesports.com.
