Vote for Temple University Men's Basketball Coach, Fran Dunphy, and Help Us Win $100,000!

We are excited to share Temple Men’s Basketball Coach and Board of Trustees member, Fran Dunphy, has again selected Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region (BBBS Independence) as his charity of choice for the 2017 INFINITI Coaches’ Charity Challenge. The Challenge is an online tournament split into four rounds with 48 NCAA Men’s Basketball Coaches competing against each other to raise money for their designated charity through an online voting system.

The first round of the tournament is going on now, and we need your votes to help Coach Dunphy advance to round two. Just for participating, BBBS Independence will receive $1,000, but our prize money increases for each round we stay in the tournament, with the winning coach receiving $100,000 for his charity!

You can vote once a day, every day. Voting is quick and easy. After each round, the voting resets, meaning each coach’s total returns to zero.
