NORTH OLMSTED – Milestones Autism Resources will hold its fifth annual bowling extravaganza, Strike It Big for Milestones, presented by Davis Automotive Group. The event will take place from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday, April 23 at Buckeye Lanes, 24488 Lorain Road, in North Olmsted.
In addition to bowling, the family-friendly event includes food, face painting, balloon animals, a raffle, and an opportunity to learn more about autism.

“We invite everyone in the community to enjoy an afternoon of fun with family and friends – and for a good cause,” says Lauren Daughtrey, Director of Development at Milestones Autism Resources. “Events like ‘Strike It Big’ allow us, as an organization, to connect families with the support network they need. Strike It Big event chairs are Joe Kraft, Phillip Irvin and Allison McMeechan. King Pin Presenting Sponsor is Davis Automotive Group and Alley Sponsor is Hickman & Lowder Co., LPA.
“We hope local families, individuals, and businesses will join us for this fun-filled day to benefit our local autism community,” says event chair Allison McMeechan. “My family and I are looking forward to participating in this wonderful event. We hope you will join us!”
