Yes ICAN is holding on October 15, 2017, one of its most fun fund raisers of the year – Strike Against Child Abuse To Spare The Kids. This bowling event raises money to keep our programs running. The silent auction is one of the most important parts of our event. If every supporter donated one item for our auction, this event would be a great success!!
Don’t think you have anything to offer? You’d be surprised. If you, your business, your family, or your friends frequent a hotel, restaurant or other business how about asking for a gift certificate or to donate an item? If you’re not very comfortable about asking for a donation you can give us the contact name and address we will be happy to contact them and provide information regarding their participation in the silent auction and bowling event.
