Everyone is invited to the 5th Annual Bowl for Our Children fundraiser for the Chemung County Child Advocacy Center on December 17, 2022, at Crystal Lanes at 1:00PM. Registration begins at 12:30pm--4 person teams. Cash & trophy for 1st place winner.
All proceeds will benefit the Chemung County Child Advocacy Center helping children and families survive abuse since 2007. Your entry fee will help the children and families we serve by offering additional support, comfort, and a path to healing.
You may ask yourself why this matters, but the truth is that child abuse can impact us all. Age, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status mean nothing when it comes to facing abuse and trauma. Here are some facts to consider: 1 in 10 children is sexually abused before their 18th birthday and 1 in 5 youth is solicited for sex online. Nearly 70% of all reported sexual assaults happen to youngsters under age 17. About 15% of American children are exposed to domestic violence each year. In 2021, the Chemung County CAC served 452 children and families, which has almost doubled from 2020.
