An estimated 70 million NCAA Tournament brackets are filled out each year, and there's one local couple that has set up a bracket this March for a good cause.
JD and Dulce Drakulich have launched a free NCAA Tournament bracket with prizes for most correct picks in the first round, most Sweet 16 correct selections, most Elite 8 correct picks and an overall champion. The first three round winners get a $150 gift card to local businesses in Midtown and the overall champion gets a $500 gift card to Patagonia. While the tournament is free, a monetary donation to Safe Embrace is requested.
Safe Embrace operates the largest safe house in Northern Nevada for victims of domestic abuse, sexual assault and human trafficking while providing counseling, housing assistance, emergency transportation and other support in its goal of turning victims into survivors.
