BENEFITING: AMERICAN ASSOCIATION OF ZOO KEEPERS
Bowling for Rhinos (BFR) is a national bowl-a-thon to fundraise for rhino habitat conservation. Rhinoceros are flagship species, meaning that in conserving rhino habitat, countless other plant and animal species are also protected. The American Association of Zoo Keepers' (AAZK's) largest conservation fundraising effort, Bowling for rhinos has donated over $6 million to rhinoceros conservation organizations sine 1990. Funds raised are shared between the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy, the International Rhino Foundation, Action for Cheetahs in Kenya, and the BFR Conservation Resource Fund Grant. You can visit https://www.aazk.org/bowling-for-rhinos/ for more information.
More than 80 local chapters in both the US and Canada participate each year. Our local chapter hosts bowling and a silent auction. Last year AAZK Zoo New England raised just shy of $6000. Please help us top that record! And don't forget that Bowling for Rhinos is open to all! This year the event will be at: Townline Luxury Lanes, 665 Broadway, Malden MA 02148 on May 26th. Bowling runs from 7:30 to 9:30 pm. We recommend coming early for registration and to check out the silent auction! Advance registration is $30 and includes 2 hours of bowling, a BFR t-shirt, and pizza. To register, sign in to Crowdrise and either join the fundraising team or make a donation! Leaving a comment with your donation that you're registering for the event and your preferred t-shirt size is also very helpful to the organizers. You can also RSVP to the Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/224101574735105/. Registration at the door will be $35.
