Looking for a summer job for your kid? Apparently they keep having job openings for bowling pin set-up engineers at Lion Country Safari.
Yes, that’s a joke.
However, Lion Country Safari’s chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers’ (AAZK) is hosting Bowling for Rhinos tonight, 7-9 p.m., at Revolutions Bowling CityPlace. The public is welcome and the cost is $25 which includes donation, bowling, pizza and soda.
Zoo Keepers throughout the U.S. and Canada, participate annually in Bowling for Rhinos to raise money for the conservation of endangered rhinos and the ecosystems they inhabit. Individuals can support Bowling for Rhinos in several ways: become an event sponsor or sponsor a bowler, bowl as an individual or team to raise money or donate an item to be given away as a prize. All donations are tax deductible, and 100 percent of donated funds go to Bowling for Rhinos’ conservation projects.
Since 1990, AAZK has raised over $4 million through Bowling for Rhinos with Lion Country Safari AAZK Chapter having raised more than $10,000. All the proceeds go to supporting three rhino sanctuaries in Indonesia, Sumatra and Kenya, while also raising community participation with Action for Cheetahs in Kenya.
