Abilities Services, Inc. (ASI) has been selected from more than 1,530 non-profit organizations from across the country who registered to compete in Brackets For Good 2018. Starting March 2, ASI will rally supporters to help the organization advance in an online single-elimination bracket-style fundraising tournament.
By bringing together people with mental disabilities, offering them the opportunity to establish friendships, and leading them in activities that result in a meaningful day, ASI is building a community and a safe space for people who have been hidden in the shadows for decades. 
“We are very humbled by this opportunity to be able to partner with Brackets for Good” said Michelle Leonard-Smith, CEO/Executive Director for Abilities Services, Inc. “The dollars raised through Brackets for Good will afford Abilities Services the opportunity to fund the purchase of additional vehicles to better be able to serve our rural community. We are fortunate that the Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce has joined our team as a Community Teammate. If any local business or organization would like to join and host a fundraising event (no matter the size), we would encourage them to contact ASI for additional details! Tip off begins at 8 p.m. on Friday, March 2 and the community can follow the results in real time at”
Indianapolis-based Brackets For Good, pairs with corporate and non-profit sponsors to host online, bracket-style fundraising tournaments in philanthropic communities around the United States. Brackets for Good have raised more than $2.75 million for local charities since its 2012 kick-off contest in Indianapolis.
Question of the Week:

Considering that an AR-15-type semi-automatic weapon has been used in six of the 10 most deadly mass shootings in the U.S. in the last decade, should those types of weapons be banned?
