WAYLAND, MA – With the Virginia Cavaliers winning the NCAA men’s college basketball championship last week, DunkFest 2019 officially came to an end. The overall winner of DunkFest 2019 was Cheryl Kozak, an iPROMOTEu Affiliate from Florida. Cheryl correctly predicted Virginia to win in the championship game; her bracket was among the top 2% of the more than 17,000,000 brackets completed on ESPN’s Tournament Challenge.
Bob Sanfilippo, another iPROMOTEu Affiliate from California, came in second and Max Schell, a long-time iPROMOTEu Affiliate from California came in third. Commemorative trophies and gift cards will be awarded for the top three brackets. Congratulations to all the winners and thanks to all who participated.
Run by industry distributor organization iPROMOTEu, DunkFest is an annual NCAA men’s college basketball tournament challenge organized exclusively for the promotional products industry. “This year’s tournament was a lot of fun and generated spirited conversation and competition among more than 170 industry participants,” said Ross Silverstein, President & CEO of iPROMOTEu.
iPROMOTEu started DunkFest in 2008 to generate enthusiasm, spirit, and friendly competition among those working in the promotional products industry. Participation has grown each year as participants eagerly await the DunkFest invitation after Selection Sunday and then boast of their bracket-picking prowess and trophies awarded during the competition.
