March Mania Event
Each March, during the first Friday of the NCAA Division 1 Basketball Tournament, the Joel Cornette Foundation hosts the first of its two annual fundraising events. This event is a time to celebrate and share memories and is especially significant to the Cornette Family. Joel burst into the national spotlight in 2003 when he led Butler University to a surprise Sweet 16 bid in the NCAA Tournament, which helped put the Bulldogs on the map. Joel is remembered for defiantly telling the media “We Are Still Here” that season – a quote that is a large part of his legacy.
