A beautiful spring weekend is upon us and many people are looking for something fun to do. Can I make a suggestion? Bowling.
Who doesn’t love bowling? Okay, maybe there’s a few individuals that would rather sit the game out and root family members and friends on. But, don’t worry, there’s something for you to enjoy as well!
In an effort to spread awareness about child abuse and neglect, CASA Rowan is holding “Strike Back Against Child Abuse,” from noon to 2 p.m., tomorrow at Glassboro Bowl and Recreation Center, 503 N. Delsea Drive, in Glassboro. For $10, each person can have pizza and soda, shoe rental, and two hours of bowling.
Liscio’s of Glassboro has donated some delicious baked goods for the event, in addition to baked goods homemade with love from CASA volunteers. You can satisfy your sweet tooth and help the cause at the same time – you can’t really beat that!
According to event coordinator, Dianna Turner, “I think children are innocent in every situation and deserve the best from EVERYONE. In this day and age when abuse and neglect are at the highest rate, it is more important than ever to take a stand and make a change. Spreading the word and awareness is what CASA does to help, in addition to all of the advocates and volunteers. Everyone has the ability to be a leader to help our children.”
Gather up your family and friends and head over to Glassboro Bowl and Recreation Center tomorrow afternoon. Enjoy the afternoon with good company, good food and lots of fun in support of child abuse awareness. Also, if you haven’t done so, be sure to “like” CASA of Cumberland, Gloucester & Salem counties and CASA Rowan on Facebook to receive the latest news in the fight against child abuse.

CASA Rowan Chapter, a non-profit organization, supports a network of local, community based CASA programs through which trained volunteers advocate for the best interests of children who have been removed from their families because of abuse or neglect.
