I'm incredibly sorry for the long delayed post. Congratulations to all who played in the TBE March Madness pool this year. It was a great tournament that hinged on an Elite Eight game. If Arizona had beaten Wisconsin, many possibilities would have remained alive. However, Wisconsin won, and that sealed the deal for Dr. Z and the BRCAC. Congrats!!
Below is the press release.
***Dated: May 9, 2014***
Congratulations to Dr. Zeretzke and the Baton Rouge Children’s Adovocacy Center!
The Bleeding Ear’s Play For a Cause March Madness charity pool (“TBE Play For a Cause”) was started in 2008 as a way to funnel a good time into good deeds. Two years earlier, while volunteering at an orphanage in Vietnam, I saw how much $100 – a relatively small amount in America – could do for needy children.
That first year we raised $100 for Heifer International. Every year we’ve had an increase in players, money, fun, and watched some excellent tournaments. This year we have raised $260 for the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center. Congratulations to all involved.
The Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center (BRCAC) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to “lessen the trauma experienced by child victims when abuse allegations are investigated, and to provide support during any subsequent proceedings within the criminal justice system.”
•Protects children who have been sexually and/ or physically abused and helps prevent further abuse.
•Provides therapeutic counseling during the time of disclosure and thereafter.
•Maintains and reconstitutes a healthy family by healing the scars of abuse
•Enhances community safety by preventing the perpetration of sexual/physical abuse.
•Coordinates the prosecution of the criminal cases
In 2013, BRCAC served 312 children who were sexually abused, physically abused, or had witnessed a severe crime.
We cannot be more proud to help support the Baton Rouge Children’s Advocacy Center.
