Halloween Photos & Reno Bowls for Rhinos Fundraising Results

Back in October, I ran a contest to win a free ticket to the Reno Bowls for Rhinos Halloween & Gala event. The event was held at the National Bowling Stadium and you could go dressed formally or in a Halloween costume.

Special thank you to those who participated on such short notice!

The winner was chosen based on first to respond:

• First would-be-winner, Brian R. had to meet a class project deadline and was unable to attend.
• Second would-be-winner, Jan K., lives in another country and would not be able to attend on such short notice, even if he was so inclined!
Frank B. ultimately won the ticket to the gala and came as himself, dressed to the nines!

Congratulations, Frank B.!!

The Reno Bowls for Rhinos family-friendly Halloween safe bowling event was held the next day. Both events were fun and successful:

We raised over $5,400 for wild rhinos and cheetahs!!

 

As you can see above, I went as Day of the Dead. I placed in the costume contest and won an awesome wooden carved rhinoceros...I this!

Reno Bowls for Rhinos Halloween Safe Bowl Sunday event: does this person look safe to you? So what am I? How about "Day of the Dead Faerie Viking Princess"? My mom got me the helmet, which features a pink sparkly gem & ribbon...hence "faerie princess". Thanks, Mom, for helping me scare little kids.
