During this year’s NCAA men’s basketball tournament, P1 Group associates, family and friends participated in the annual P1 Group Charity Bracket Challenge.
Prior to the start of the tournament, participants were invited to fill out a bracket for five dollars. The overall winner of the challenge was given the opportunity to select an approved charity that would receive the proceeds of the entry fees.
Kentucky’s win over Kansas in the championship game clinched a victory for Mitch Reed – and ultimately his chosen organization the Healing House of Kansas City. P1’s fundraising efforts resulted in $450 that P1 Group was able to give to the organization.
“My aunt founded The Healing House nine years ago. Because it is a Christian-based recovery home she does not receive funding; so I like to give back any chance that I can,” said Reed.
The Healing House of Kansas City includes eight houses, one apartment building and one community center in northeast Kansas City that serve as recovery homes for men and women battling addiction.
