And the YMCA wins!

In a stunning finale, the YMCA organized a stampede of supporters to shop at Sports Basement and won the 2012 Charity Madness tournament.

The YMCA raised $2,045 vs. the SF Schools’ admirable $1,852, with the TNT and WCEF/PEAK teams adding more money to their total funds raised. “All the customers kept mentioning the Y for Charity Madness. You could tell they really wanted to win.” said SB Staffer Anne Hayes. Known for their creative marketing and grassroots organizational skills there’s a rumor that the Obama 2012 campaign team might want some tips from the YMCA team.

But the real winners were the 32 charities that raised $34,124 for all their wonderful causes. Our Community Team will contact each charity to organize Sports Basement’s donation. Thanks for playing and see you next year.
