Bowling for Rhinos

Looking for a fun (and generous) way to spend a Saturday evening? Palace Bowling Lanes is hosting the 'Bowling For Rhinos' bowl-a-thon from 6-10 p.m. Eat, drink, bowl, and be merry while also raising money for these beautiful babies.

So you may be wondering, why do rhinos needs us to bowl?
Well according to the Houston Zoo website,
there are only 5 species of rhino left, when there once were over 100 species! All 5 species are endangered due to hunters seeking their valuable horns.

All proceeds from Bowling For Rhinos go to the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Ujung Kulon National Park in Java, Indonesia and Bukit Barisan Selatan National Park in Sumatra. 100% of the money raised will directly to these organizations.
