Bowling for Bonobos!

On March 11th, bonobo fans gathered at Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge in Washington, DC to support the Bonobo Conservation Initiative (BCI). Volunteers and BCI staff greeted customers at the entrance with information about the organization. There was also a special appearance by an ape character! 20% of all the proceeds from what customers spent on bowling, food and drinks went directly towards BCI’s efforts to save the bonobo and its rainforest habitat.

Special thanks to Lucky Strike Lanes and everyone who came out to bowl for bonobos! Check out pics from the event here.

If you were unable to attend the bowling event, we welcome you to join us this Saturday, March 27th at Patagonia in Georgetown (1048 Wisconsin Ave., NW). We will have materials, slide shows and videos, and fun kid activities, including bonobo masks! Hope to see you there, go bonobo!
