Snow Bowl

Roll ‘Em and Bowl Em!

Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2018 Snow Bowl. 

Build camaraderie among your team and join us for our annual Snow Bowl!

Anyone can participate and you don’t have to be a good bowler to win! To play the game, each five-member team predicts their score prior to the event. The five-member team closest to their predicted score wins the tournament. The winning team will receive a trophy and each team member will receive a special prize from the Akron Zoo. The day is action packed with special emcees and visits from some of the zoo’s animals.

Funds raised at Snow Bowl are vital to the Akron Zoo. These proceeds provide the zoo with funds to continue to offer quality programming, while educating children and adults about conservation issues and endangered species. Your contribution will help support the children and families of our community and promote education at your Akron Zoo.

  For questions, contact Kathy Mariani at k.mariani@akronzoo.org or 330-375-2550 ext. 7231.
