The “Rockin’ for Good Friend” (R4GF) Autism Acceptance Bowling event welcomes teams of bowlers – who raise pledges prior to the event – to enjoy bowling, prizes, contests, raffles, food, and most importantly FUN in the name of Autism Awareness, Acceptance, and Empathy.
Two sessions allow team captains to choose the time that works best for their crew (registration available on a first-come, first-served basis). The sessions last approximately two hours each and promise a Rockin’ GOOD TIME! This event tends to sell out, so don’t wait to register!
Groupies welcome! Non-bowlers can attend and watch all the action, participate in the raffles, and enjoy food and beverages.
Advance $170 per team
