Rock N’ Bowl for Autism celebrates third year
November 10, 2012 by James
Tomorrow afternoon, the Asperger Syndrome and High Functioning Autism Association (AHA) will be holding its third annual Rock ‘N Bowl fundraiser to help generate income for its programs. The last two events have seen over 250 participants and raised more than $25,000. AHA maintains very strict administrative practices, and roughly 90% of all earned funds go directly towards their programs, so participants can rest assured that their contributions are being put to good use.
Some of these programs include after school, summer, and social skill classes. AHA’s mission also includes increasing awareness about high functioning autism among medical professionals and parents. It also seeks to create more educational programs focused on the needs of those with high functioning autism, such as social skills and awareness classes, as well as employment and recreational opportunities.
The Rock ‘N Bowl will take place in Amityville, New York at Farmingdale Lanes tomorrow, November 11. It is $25 admission for those who are interested in bowling and $12 for those who just want to hang out. The event will run from 2:00 pm – 5:00 pm.
It is likely that AHA will call on print companies to create promotional materials for this event so that they can draw in even more people for the fundraiser. Spreading flyers in nearby areas like Lindenhurst Levittown, Wantagh, and Island Park could increase the number of participants. AHA may also want some kind of informational brochures available at the event in order to inform people about the programs that it runs, as well as any others it hopes to get going.
