2018 BOWLING FOR RHINOS IS
MAY 5TH, 6PM - 12AM
Jewel City Bowl, 135 S. Glendale Ave, Glendale, CA 91205 6 PM - Midnight
Bowling for Rhinos is in its 28th year of fundraising for rhinoceros conservation around the world. Keepers from over 80 chapters all over the United States and Canada have raised over 7 million dollars for this worthy cause.
The Los Angeles Chapter of AAZK has managed to raise more than any other chapter over the last nine years. Thanks to tremendous community support, last year’s Bowling For Rhinos (BFR) was the most successful on record. Every year we have more bowlers, bigger raffle prizes and one of the most unique silent auctions you will see in all of Los Angeles! Our all-time fundraising total is more than $376,000, and the cause is more important than ever with poaching at historic highs.

Who Does BFR support?
BFR supports the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy where our donations help protect both black and white rhinos and most of the other species native to East Africa. In Indonesia BFR supports the remaining Javan Rhinos at Ujung Kulon National Park and the Sumatran Rhinos in Bukit Barisan Selatan and Way Kambas National Parks through the International Rhino Foundation. BFR also supports Action for Cheetahs in Kenya. Cheetahs share much of the same habitat as rhinos and by working to conserve cheetahs we are also saving rhinos and the countless other species that call that habitat home. Many organizations participate in these events and have added the Rocking For Rhinos, Rummage For Rhinos, and Recycling For Rhinos projects as other ways to raise funds for this very worthwhile project.
