Chicago Heights, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Marian’s Catholic High School ’s Leadership Center will host the sixth annual “Marian Madness” NCAA Final Four celebration on Saturday, April 5. The event will feature both men’s NCAA national semifinals from the Alamodome in San Antonio on five big screens.

“It’s a very good opportunity to get together with some fellow alumni and friends while watching some great basketball games,” according to committee member Ed Ziltz ’80. “For the price, it’s well worth it for the fun and to see so many people. There will also be some outstanding food, great silent auction items and an opportunity for everyone to go home a winner.”

Tickets for the event are only $25 and feature unlimited food and drink, as well as loads of fun. Marian Madness is co-sponsored by the Alumni Association and Marian Athletics, and will also feature games of chance and several exciting silent auction items— including signed Brian Urlacher and Dwight Howard jerseys and autographed Rodney Harrison photo. The fund-raising and friend-raising event will benefit Marian Athletics. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m.

Marian Madness can’t ensure the local flavor of a University of Illinois semifinal victory this year, but it can guarantee a great evening of fun and excitement for all.
