We've been offline for a bit, but we've been busy just the same!!! 

Our Chuck-a-Puck fundraiser at the KC Maverick's Hockey Game on March 23, 2016 raised over $260!  It was a fun night of supporting the Mavericks and raising funds for conservation projects!

The 2016 Bowling for Rhinos Event was a huge success.  We had some great raffle baskets donated by various departments at the Kansas City Zoo, and a room full of great raffle prizes and silent auction items donated by amazing locals and local businesses!  Thank you everyone for your support and yur efforts to help save rhinoceroses from extinction!!!  Together we can make a difference!
