CAC Strike Out Abuse fundraiser is July 26

The Wayne County Children's Advocacy Center, which serves Wayne, Holmes and Ashland counties, will hold its Strike Out Abuse bowling fundraiser on July 26 at Wayne Lanes in Wooster.

Doors will open at 5:30 p.m. for the 6 p.m. event, which features bowling, pizza and salad from Bosco’s Pizza, Cookie Snob Cookies, and a chance to win raffle prizes and auction items. Pull together a team of six people or just register as a single and be placed on a team. Corporate team sponsorships and other sponsorships also are available as the CAC celebrates its 20th anniversary.

The Children’s Advocacy Center has served abused children from Wayne, Holmes and Ashland counties since 2004, helping nearly 4,000 children in that time by providing forensic interviewing, medical exams and mental health screening for every child who needs help. The bowling fundraiser is its largest and helps it meet its mission as the CAC relies solely on donations, grants and United Way funding.

The cost for the event is $720 for a corporate team sponsor of a team of six bowlers representing their corporation and includes social media recognition and recognition as a lifelong sustaining member of the 72 Club in its newsletter and on the giving tree at the CAC. A friends and family team is $432 and includes a team of six bowlers, and each member’s entry fee of $72 will automatically add them to the 72 Club membership and recognition in the newsletter and on the giving tree at the CAC. The cost for a single bowler is $72. Also, the CAC is in need of raffle baskets and silent auction items for the event.

The main presenting sponsor for the fourth year in a row is McElroy Packaging, with Prism Wealth Management, co-sponsor this year and committed to being a full sponsor next year. The reason for the $72 fee per person is it is vital the CAC sees a child within 72 hours of the abuse so its team can help perform the necessary screening and intervention that may be needed to help the child heal.

When a child is sexually abused, there is a 72-hour window where an abused child should be examined to collect necessary evidence and DNA. The CAC responds 24/7, 365 days a year when a child is sexually or physically abused. If you support CAC services, you can become a 72 Club member by donating $72 a year. There are lifelong sustaining memberships available for a one-time fee of $720. Donors will be recognized through the year.

All proceeds go to the Children’s Advocacy Center. For more information visit the CAC website at or find it on Facebook.
