On Sunday, May 19 2019, the community at large will join teen volunteers, children with disabilities and their families who will be attending the first annual Bowl4Friendship to benefit Friendship Circle of Virginia, a non profit organization which provides friendship and fun for children with disabilities and community teens while building an inclusive community, one friendship at a time.
The event will take place at Uptown Alley, 6101 Brad McNeer Pkwy, Midlothian, VA 23112, on Sunday, May 19 from 3-5 pm.
Friendship Circle fulfills the most vital needs of childhood – friendship and fun – by creating social opportunities for children and young adults with disabilities, pairing them with typical teens and youth for weekly in-home play dates, social outings, and monthly events throughout RVA. Friendship is a necessity at every age and we are committed to continuing to create inclusion through social experiences for our community.
But inclusion can only be a reality when people have the chance to meet and work together with people who are not like them. While we continue to focus on inclusion through friendships for the youth, Disability Inclusion needs to be a community priority to be successful – and that’s where you come in.
Funds raised through Bowl4Friendship will help expand our services and activities that we offer to families throughout the Richmond area and continue to provide these programs and events for free for all our members.
FCVA is open to the entire community and welcomes members of any age and with any diagnosis – anyone who wants to meet a new friend.
