MARCH 7, 2018

A great time was had by all at our annual Madness Tournaments Tip-Off Party at Drums N Flats sports bar in Toronto on March 7th. More than 100 guests came out on a freezing cold night to help kick off the 2019 Madness Tournaments Fundraising Campaign and to celebrate the 25th anniversary of our signature Online March Madness Tournament. People danced the night away to an amazing band, Atomic Hustle, bid on fantastic silent auction items and schmoozed with old and new friends.

Big thanks to our Madness party chair, Rhonda Ronson, and to co-chairs of the Madness Tournaments Committee Lorne Persiko and Mike Kraft. Special thank you to the rest of the Madness Committee – Michael Konikoff, Gary Rudson, Roslyn Goldmintz, Harlie Persiko and Aliya Lucatch – all of whom came together to make the event such a success.

Proceeds raised from the Madness party support cutting-edge research at the Multidisciplinary Center for Cannabinoid Research at Hebrew University.
