On a June afternoon LeeAnn Sullivan and Mary Holody set up a lemonade stand in their neighborhood. The girls decided that they were going to donate all the money they earned to the Autism Society NWPA! It was all about having fun and doing something nice for others. Thank you, LeeAnn & Mary!!
RIDE FOR MY LIFE!
On June 16, 2012, Kathy Schreckengost headed to Everett, Washington, to being a "Ride of my Life." There, she will put the back tire of her bike into the Pacific Ocean and start pedaling. Nine weeks later, she plans to be in Gloucester, Massachuetts, setting her front wheel into the Atlantic Ocean. She will be traveling with a group called "Cycle America", and will be riding an average of 80 miles a day. This has been a dream of hers for over 10 years and to make it even more meaningful, she will be dedicating each week to a different charitable organization
Kathy has dedicated week 3 (June 30) to Autism Society NWPA. Her goal is to raise a dollar for every mile she rides. If you are interested in donating to Kathy's Ride of My Life benefiting the Autism Society NWPA, please click here.
Hoops for Hope
Kelsey Rogers a senior at Harbor Creek School District included the Autism Society NWPA in her senior project. In order to raise awareness and support our organization, Kelsey planned and organized "Hoops 4 Hope." The event was held during the Harbor Creek home basketball game on February 3, 2012. Kelsey arranged for t-shirts with the Hoops 4 Hope logo and the puzzle piece ribbon. Over 90 shirts were sold to support this event!
The group also held a bake sale, 50/50 ticket sale, themed basket auction at the game. Proceeds from the game ticket sales were donated to the cause.
Thank you, Kelsey Rogers and Harbor Creek School District, for raising awareness and supporting Autism Society Northwestern Pennsylvania!
