The Greater Cleveland Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers presents the 24th annual “Bowling for Rhinos” fundraiser. The event will be held at Cloverleaf Lanes in Independence on Saturday, June 14, 2014 from 6:30 to midnight.

Advanced registration is $20 or $40 at the door (subject to availability). All donations are tax deductable. Your ticket entitles you to three games of bowling, shoe rental, pizza, pop and snacks. During the event there will be a silent auction, raffles, entertainment and trivia.

All proceeds from the event go directly to rhino sanctuaries in Kenya, Java and Sumatra. With three out of five rhinoceros on the critically endangered list (including the eastern black rhino that is housed at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo) over $113,760 has been sent to help this endangered species with nationwide efforts reaching $5 million.
