The ABC Young Professionals Committee will be supporting Aaron’s Acres this year on Saturday, November 4, at the third charity Bowl-A-Thon.  Aaron’s Acres provides therapeutically based age-appropriate recreational programs directed by specially trained and certified staff for individuals with special needs, ages 5-21. No child is turned away regardless of disability or ability to pay. Aaron’s Acres is committed to providing programs that are completely inclusive to all individuals, from spending time in the pool to riding a horse or pony, and the organization maintains a 1:1 or 1:2 staff-to-child ratio.

On behalf of Aaron’s Acres, I would like to thank the ABC Young Professionals for choosing Aaron’s Acres as the beneficiary of their annual Bowl-a-Thon. The proceeds from this event will go directly to the children and families we serve everyday through our school year programs and summer camps. These proceeds help provide social and recreational programs that advance the spirit and lives of children with disabilities, give peace of mind to their families and create goodwill in our communities. Thank you for your support ABC and please come visit soon!!
