Event description

Description

Join local zoo keepers and animal lovers for a family-friendly night of bowling and fundraising to support conservation efforts for the remaining species of rhinos and their habitats.

100% of the proceeds from this event go to 3 conservation organizations (follow the links for more information):

1) Lewa Wildlife Conservancy

2) International Rhino Foundation

3) Action for Cheetahs in Kenya

Rhino poaching has increased drastically over the last decade, and there is the possibility that these gentle giants will go extinct in our lifetime. Statistics show that at least 3 rhinos are killed every day in South Africa. But rhinos are not the only species that are being affected by poaching, habitat loss, and other threats. Elephants, tigers, orangutans, and many other species are hanging on by a thread. Even though we are far away from Africa and Asia, we can still make a difference. By raising funds and awareness for the protection of rhinos we are also saving every species of plants and animals that share their habitats.

Read more about the threats to rhinos here.

5:30 = sign in/lane assignments begin

6:30 to 7:30 = pizza and soda

7:30 to 9:30 = bowling

Raffles and silent auctions will be going on throughout the night.

2018 Bowling for Rhinos shirts are available here.

We ask that all bowlers ages 13 and up raise at least $30 in personal pledges, 100% of which goes directly to conservation ($15 for bowlers under age 13). Non-bowlers are also encouraged to bring in pledges, but it is not required. ONCE YOU HAVE REGISTERED, PRINT A PLEDGE SHEET HERE AND BRING IT AND ALL PLEDGE MONEY WITH YOU THE NIGHT OF THE EVENT.
