Big Agnes® Inc., maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, announces the 4th Annual Bowl-O-Rama Fundraiser for Leave No Trace, to be held on Friday, August 8th – 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.

"Big Agnes is a great partner to have. Their annual bowling event benefiting the Leave No Trace program is as fun as environmental philanthropy gets,” states Suzy Levin Alkitis, Leave No Trace's Deputy Director.

How does the whole thing work? Companies from the outdoor industry “reserve” one of available 36 lanes for $250. The entry fee includes: 1 lane per company, shoe rentals for all bowlers, plenty of pizza, 1 complimentary beverage ticket and 1 gear raffle ticket per person. Each lane may 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 available.

“Everyone likes to bowl so supporting Leave No Trace with another fundraiser was an obvious choice. You can stand around and drink beer with your buddies later in the evening so whip up some team bowling shirts, come out early, network a little and knock down a few pins for a good cause,” says Len Zanni, Big Agnes co-owner.

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, PrimaLoft and REI. For more information on how to get involved in the 4th annual event or to reserve your team's lane, please contact Len Zanni at (970) 963-2045 or len@bigagnes.com.

Named for a peak in the nearby Mt. Zirkel Wilderness, Big Agnes®, Inc. is located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and produces award-winning sleeping bags, pads and tents. For more information, visit www.bigagnes.com or call 1-877-554-8975.
