Bowling for Rhinos
The American Association of Zoo Keepers (AAZK) began a nationwide bowl-a-thon called Bowling for Rhinos (BFR) in 1990 to help save rhinos and their habitats.
The BFR fund raiser began on a small scale and is now the signature conservation effort of AAZK. BFR events across North America raise over $300,000 annually. This year’s goal: to raise $500,000!
Join AAZK San Diego at our annual rhino fundraiser where 100% of the profits raised go directly towards rhino conservation. Event includes bowling, silent auction, special drawings, awards for best dressed team, dance-off, and more fun than any fundraiser should contain! Teams and individuals are welcome to join.
5:15 pm check in; 6 pm to 9 pm bowling and activities.
$50 per five-person team; $10 per person.
Every bowler is required to raise a minimum of $40 in sponsorship, due the evening of the event. All sponsorship monies will be donated to the BFR Fund.
There will be a prize for the person who raises the most plus the top-four AAZK members nationwide that raise the most in sponsorship for BFR are eligible for a chance to win a trip to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy near Isiolo, Kenya, or a trip to Indonesia.
