Wild Bowling for Bugs and Biodiversity

Calendar Announcement

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--April 22, 1999--Support efforts to save rainforests and coral reefs around the world at the 5th annual Bowl-The-Planet event on Saturday May 22 at Japantown Bowl, Post and Webster Streets, in San Francisco. The annual fundraiser sponsored by The Center for Ecosystem Survival at San Francisco State University offers families a way to have fun while helping endangered habitats.

Bowl for free at afternoon games starting at 12:30 p.m. and 3 p.m. There will be bumper bowling for the kids and chances to win exotic prizes. At 5:30 p.m., the lights dim, mirror balls spin, and the music cranks for Global Glow Bowling, featuring glow-in-the-dark pins. A $15 registration fee for the evening session includes food, beer, free parking, and bowling until 8:00 p.m. Raise $100 in pledges and receive a free wild bug t-shirt and a
chance to win the Grand Prize raffle.

Glow Bowling has sold out for the past two years, so circle the date and come bowl for the planet. Or pledge your support for other bowlers. Call the Center at (415) 338-3392 or e-mail to sign up, to sponsor a bowler, or to volunteer.

For ten years, the non-profit Center for Ecosystem Survival has inspired people to participate in preserving biodiversity. Its programs include the new Insect Discovery Lab for outreach to schoools, the Adopt an Acre and Adopt a Reef projects, and the Conservation Parking Meter. Funds raised go toward protecting millions of acres of critical habitat for endangered plants, animals, and ecosystems in Brazil, Costa Rica, Palau, and other countries.
