March Madness

Trisha Fischer

Many know March Madness as a college basketball tournament, but among the Bloomington-Normal community, it’s also a philanthropic opportunity to care for those in need.

Chi Omega at Illinois State University will host its 45th annual March Madness competition on April 11 to benefit Make A Wish Illinois.

Make A Wish Chairwoman Trisha Fischer said the dance competition among different Greek organizations raises money to grant the wishes of children with critical illnesses.

The Illinois high school basketball finals are where the term March Madness was coined.
