Basketball fans and Mercy friends alike packed the gym on March 23 for the 3rd Annual Mercy Madness & Monte Carlo event. Guests enjoyed a variety of Monte Carlo games including poker tables, Big Daddy's Dice Game, Left-Right-Center and Horse Races plus basket raffles and split-the-pot. Second Round action of the NCAA Basketball Tournament was shown live on multiple flat screen TV's and large projectors and Mercy's Dads Club served up delicious grilled food along with cold beverages. The highlight of the evening was the countdown to the grand prize winner of the Reverse Raffle. Almost 300 tickets were sold with every 50th ticket drawn having the chance to take home $100 or throw their ticket back in the hopper. The crowd grew large as the remaining 10 ticket holders were announced. Mother of Mercy congratulates Cathy Meyers and Kamela Kurzhals who were the last two tickets left and agreed to split the $10,000 grand prize!
Mercy Madness is organized by Mercy's Dads Club and supported by a number of sponsors including JTM, Mercy Health, Viox Services, Ultimus Fund Solutions and Warsaw Federal Savings & Loan. All proceeds from the evening go directly to support the Mercy Fund, which includes tuition assistance for many deserving Mercy families.
