Ready to save some rhinos? We are! Here are a few things to remember for Saturday:

Winos for Rhinos will go on RAIN or SHINE! Please be advised that some activities may be limited if there is inclement weather, but there will still be plenty of opportunities to relax, have some fun, and save rhinos. Additional tickets will also be available at the door, so bring your friends and family for this conservation sensation!

Remember — VIP ticket holders have expedited check in, look for it when arriving on Saturday. The event runs from 5:30-9:30 for all ticket holders and there is complimentary on site parking.

Winos for Rhinos is a GREEN event — so BYOC (cups, chairs, and koozies)! GBAAZK is encouraging WFR guests to bring their own “cups” — travel mugs, water bottles, etc. Limited single use cups (for water, soft drink, etc.) will be available, for a $1 donation per cup used. Dejon Vineyard has a fully functioning tasting space and outdoor entertainment area with plenty of seating and picnic tables. If you’d like something more comfortable, guests are welcome to bring their own camper chairs and blankets to set out on the lawn (weather permitting). You’re also welcome to use your own koozie on cans of cider or beer. WFR commemorative squishy cups will also be available for purchase (one cup is included in each VIP ticket). There will be no shopping bags provided at the event, but more than sixty items to purchase, so plan on bringing a reusable shopping bag.

The Greater Baltimore Chapter of the American Association of Zoo Keepers (GBAAZK) is continuing it's twenty-plus years of participation in Bowling for Rhinos (BFR) events, AAZK's largest annual fundraiser! This is GBAAZK's first year of a non-bowling event, and we hope you'll be there to share your support. Tickets for this family-friendly event include admission, a donation to GBAAZK's 2017 BFR total, lawn games, a fire pit, and more!

GBAAZK has raised more than $60,000 for BFR in the past two decades, contributing towards AAZK's total of more than six million dollars since its start in 1991! The AAZK’s Bowling for Rhinos provides zoo keepers of the world with an avenue to raise funds and awareness for rhino and habitat conservation. By supporting GBBAZK and BFR — you're saving rhinos, elephants, cheetah, plants, corals, and more!

What does BFR support?
In Kenya, Africa, BFR supports the Lewa Wildlife Conservancy where our donations help protect both black and white rhinos and most of the other species native to East Africa.

In Indonesia BFR supports the remaining Javan Rhinos at Ujung Kulon National Park and the Sumatran Rhinos in Bukit Barisan Selatan and Way Kambas National Parks through the International Rhino Foundation.

BFR also supports Action for Cheetahs in Kenya. Cheetahs share much of the same habitat as rhinos and by working to conserve cheetahs we are also saving rhinos and the countless other species that call that habitat home.
