Celebrity Horse Competition

Thursday night event will tip-off Bracket Town


It is helmets vs. hoops as Clyde Drexler and Robert Horry team up against Desmond Howard and Antonio Gates in a celebrity HORSE competition on the Buick Center Court at Bracket Town benefitting DonorsChoose.org.

 The NCAA®, in celebration of the Final Four®, is working together with DonorsChoose.org on a new partnership called Fund the Future—a program that puts academic and athletic supplies back into the hands of teachers and students.  A check presentation to DonorsChoose.org will lead the activities for the evening. 
DonorsChoose.org will use the funds to bring classroom materials to the following Houston area schools:  Best Elementary School, Chancellor Elementary School, Collins Elementary School, Edison Middle School, Jackson Middle School, Deady Middle School, Fonville Middle School, Hamilton Middle School, Fondren Middle School, Dowling Middle School, Hogg Middle School and Sharpstown Middle School. Students from the participating schools will be at the event cheering on their favorite player!


The mission of DonorsChoose.org is to improve public education by empowering every teacher to be a change-maker and enabling any citizen to be a philanthropist. Their vision is a nation where students in every community have the resources they need to learn.
