Autism Connections Fredericton is preparing for it's annual Bowl-A-Thon fundraiser; Spares and Strikes for Autism. Join us for a COVID-19 safe afternoon filled with bowling, pizza, and so much fun! We are looking for teams of at least 5 players each to participate in this fabulous event.
This year's Bowl-A-Thon fundraiser will take place on Saturday, November 14th 2020. The event will take place from 2-5 PM. There are also options to bowl whenever you like at the bowling alley of your choice, should you not be able to make the date.

Autism Connections Fredericton provides community support and awareness among parents, educators, professionals, and people living with autism. With 1 in 68 children today being diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder, we are finding the needs of our community to be growing exponentially. In order to continue to provide these important services to the community, our fundraising goal for this year is $20,000.
We are seeking to recruit energetic and motivated team captains who will lead their team in the fundraising efforts for this event. Each team should be made up of at least 5 members with the goal of raising $1000 each. Teams will then participate in a special bowling event at Kingswood Entertainment Centre. There will be fun, food, and friends, but you will be required to stay in your own bubble to comply with safety guidelines. We encourage teams to dress up and think of a unique team name as well. Prizes will be awarded for fundraising, bowling scores, and costumes! Alternatively, due to concerns about COVID-19, participation on the day of is not necessary, and you are welcome to get a team together and go bowling on your own time anywhere you like, or even virtually! Afterwards we can show off your cool costumes on our website!
Funds raised through the Bowl-A-Thon will be used to support the many resources Autism Connections Fredericton provides to the community such as:
We are also seeking 10 lane sponsors for this event. The cost to sponsor a lane is $200. Sponsors will be recognized on our social media, website, in advertising for the event, and on the day of the event. With the help of sponsors like you, we would like to create two teams made up of families who benefit from the services our centre provides. These team members will not be expected to fundraise but will be invited to bowl and participate in this special event.
