Team Avitus Group joined a group of local superheroes October 19, 2018 in the Kansas City area at Noah’s Crown Town Classic. The annual golf tournament supports Noah’s Bandage Project, a non-profit organization that raises money for pediatric cancer research via Children’s Mercy Hospital. This year the golf tournament helped to raise more than $33,000! Thanks to everyone who supports this wonderful organization. Learn more about Noah’s story here.
