Bowling for Rhinos
Jewel City Bowl
135 South Glendale Avenue

Jewel City Bowl in Glendale is the place to be for the BOWLING FOR RHINOS fundraiser. The money generated by our bowling skills will help protect the remaining five species of Rhinos that exist today: the White, Black, Greater One-Horned, Sumatran and Javan, which are all endangered!

The Rhino is killed for its horn to be used in foreign medicines and as symbolic dagger handles. The horn is so valuable to poachers that the Rhino cannot survive unless it is on protected sanctuaries.

The aircraft is famous for its ability to sustain damage and still accomplish the mission. Despite the risks of anti-aircraft fire, attacking enemy fighters, and the harrowing environment of sub-zero temperatures, many B-17s and B-24s safely brought their crews home.
