Rhinos are one of the most endangered animals on Earth. You can feel confident about enjoying 'Winos for Rhinos' knowing that all proceeds go directly to the organization Bowling for Rhinos (a branch of American Association of Zoo Keepers which has raised over $7 million since 1990), and to various other wildlife conservation efforts in Africa and Indonesia.

Your 'Winos for Rhinos' ticket buys you two glasses of wine, gourmet pretzels and crackers, games, live music, a special edition event coaster and charm, and live animal encounters!

You can also shop local vendor stands and participate in a silent auction. And, if you're hungry, you can purchase a charcuterie board with cheese and other noshes. What goes better with wine than charcuterie!

I'm personally very excited to attend this event and support any causes that benefit wildlife conservation. I feel like I suffer privately every time I see or here about one of these magnificent rhinos being poached. Any little thing that might help save them and other wildlife creatures if worth it.
