(Steamboat Springs, Colo.) – Big Agnes® Inc., maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, announces the 3rd Annual Bowl-O-Rama Fundraiser for Leave No Trace, to be held on Thursday, August 9th – the first night of Outdoor Retailer.

On the heels of last year's successful event, which raised over five thousand dollars, the Big Agnes Bowl-O-Rama will return to Salt Lake City's Ritz Classic Lanes, located at 2265 South State Street. Doors will open at 6:30pm with the first balls rolling at 7pm.

Leave No Trace's Deputy Director, Susy Levin Alkitis, comments on the Big Agnes Bowl-O-Rama. "Not only did the Big Agnes Bowl-O-Rama raise thousands of dollars for Leave No Trace environmental initiatives last year, it was also tremendous fun. Big Agnes's generosity in planning and executing a great event is very appreciated. Every year the Bowl-O-Rama has grown a little larger as more and more outdoor companies are registering their own teams in hopes of showing off their Big Lebowski routines and supporting our cause.”

How does the whole thing work? Companies from the outdoor industry “buy” a lane for $225, which goes entirely to Leave No Trace. The entry fee includes: 1 lane, shoe rentals for all bowlers, 1 large pizza, 1 beer and 1 raffle ticket per person. Each lane will include up to five people per team. Walk-in bowlers are encouraged to join the fun as well (entry-fee of $10) with additional raffle tickets being sold $5.

Past supporters of the Big Agnes Bowl-O-Rama have included such industry go-getters as: Adventure Medical Kits, Backbone Media, Backcountry Magazine, Backpacker Magazine, Backpacker's Pantry, Black Diamond Equipment, Granite Gear, Mountain Hardware, Osprey and PrimaLoft. For more information on how to get involved in the 3rd Annual event or to reserve your team's lane, please contact Len Zanni, Big Agnes Marketing Director, at (970) 963-2045 or len@bigagnes.com.
