Rick Polster Holding ACDI Check

It took a little time to get this 5-foot long check over 600 miles from Little Rock to Chicago but we wanted to make sure to send our congratulations to Rick Polster of Regal Business Machines for picking North Carolina over Gonzaga in the 2017 ACDI March Madness Challenge!


This year’s tournament began with over 200 total entries resulting in 163 completed brackets. Villanova was the fan favorite!
