Strike It Big for Milestones 2017

Our 5th Annual Strike It Big Bowling Extravaganza is just two weeks away!

The event, presented by Davis Automotive Group, will take place Sunday, April 23 from 11 am to 3 pm at Freeway Lanes of Solon and Buckeye Lanes in North Olmsted. In addition to bowling, there will be food, face painting, balloon animals, a raffle and opportunity to learn more about autism.

Proceeds will directly support local families impacted by autism through Milestones’ free Autism Helpdesk, a service that allows families to call professional staff for guidance, local resources and information at each and every stage of their child’s development.

Hear about this fun-filled day from some our families who have attended in the past.

“Our whole family really enjoys the Milestones Strike It fundraiser. My husband and I love that it’s a comfortable and judgement-free event. And our kids have a blast bowling and just running around being silly. It is so nice to be with other families who are on similar journeys. We are really looking forward to this year’s event!” –Leslie Dorsey

“As a School Psychologist, I’ve referred many families to Milestones for resources in our community. Parents have shared immense satisfaction with the information they’ve received over the years. The Milestones office and website provides functional and helpful information for parents, family members, guardians, individuals with ASD, educators, administrators, medical & legal professionals and safety professionals (police & fire departments) that is extremely valuable. I find the yearly conference to be beneficial as well and thoroughly enjoy the myriad of sessions available. I’ve learned SO MUCH over the past 10+ years and enjoy sharing with my colleagues, students and their families!” – Edie Ungar-Shafron

 “Milestones is an invaluable resource to members of our local ASD community who are looking for support, education and coaching. Strike it Big is a fun, family-friendly bowling event for everyone and the money raised allows Milestones to continue its mission. Everyone in attendance enjoys this day – from very young children to older adults. It feels good knowing that we are making an impact in the lives of children and adults in the autism community.” –Allison McMeechan, Strike It Big Event Chair

“Our family has been so inspired and humbled to be a part of fundraising for Milestones.  The Strike It Big Event is a wonderful opportunity to have fun, meet wonderful people, and share stories, while helping such a great cause.  We would encourage anyone to participate in this family friendly and enjoyable event.” -Kristen, Shawn, Noah and Emma West
