2023 Bowling For Rhinos


Come join the Seneca Park Zookeepers for their 20th annual "Bowling for Rhinos" fundraiser. Your chance to hang out with zoo staff and show off your bowling skills (or not)... all while supporting rhino protection, around the globe.

When: Friday, August 4th, 2023
Time: 6:30pm (Bowling begins at 6:45)

How can you support Bowling for Rhinos?

  1. Come out and bowl: Registration is $20 per bowler. You get 2 hours of bowling, shoe rental, and an entry into our door prize drawing. If you can't bowl, you're still encouraged to come out to the event and join in the fun. There will be drawings and a 50/50 raffle. You can even grab dinner at Malarky's
  2. Become a personal sponsor: Perhaps you'd like to support Bowling for Rhinos but can't bowl or attend the event. You can become a personal sponsor by making a donation to the event. Make a donation over $25 and receive a public thank you at the event and on our social media sites. Make a donation of $100 or more and receive a one-of-a-kind painting from Jiwe, our Southern White Rhino. 
  3. Become a Corporate Sponsor: Here's the chance for your business or corporation to be directly associated with a great cause. Corporate sponsors of the event will receive acknowledgment at the event and on all our social media outlets. This would include your logo and a link to your website. 
  4. Donate a Prize: Donate an item or service to be raffled off or given away as a door prize. This is a great way to promote your business while supporting a great cause.
  5. Purchase Bowling for Rhinos clothing: A variety of BFR clothing can be purchased through our partner Bonfire.

    Note, all donations go directly to Rhino conservation.

Where does your donation go? Over the course of 20 years, Seneca Park Zookeepers have raised close to $50,000 with our Bowling for Rhinos events. Nationally, more than $500,000 is raised annually through these events. The first $150,000 will go to Lewa Wildlife Conservancy in Kenya, Africa. Any additional monies raised will be donated to the International Rhino Foundation to be used at other rhino sanctuaries in Asian countries. If the rhino is to gain a stable population, it must have a suitable habitat in which to live. With your support, we can provide this habitat and these valuable ecosystems can be protected for future generations to enjoy.
