BOWLING FOR RHINOS
Jewel City Bowl
135 South Glendale Avenue
We can start practicing our bowling skills and register for the BOWLING FOR RHINOS fundraiser, Saturday, May 7th, 2016 at Jewel City Bowl in Glendale. Proceeds from the event will help protect the five, that’s right five Rhino species that exist today—the White, Black, Greater One-Horned, Sumatran and Javan. All are endangered.
The Rhino is killed for its horn to be used in oriental medicines and as symbolic dagger handles. The horn is so valuable to poachers that the Rhino cannot survive unless it is on protected sanctuaries.
To register your team, make a donation if you can’t participate in the bowling event or for more information, visit the Los Angeles Chapter of the AAZK website at http://www.AAZKLosAngeles.org
