Big Agnes® Inc., maker of innovative sleeping bags, pads and tents, is proud to announce that its 3rd annual Summer Outdoor Retailer event, Big Agnes Bowl-O-Rama, has raised over $5K in funds for Leave No Trace.

With over 200 people and 36 teams from the outdoor industry participating, the Bowl-O-Rama fundraiser for Leave No Trace kicked off Summer OR's long list of après-events. Growing in momentum and industry support each year, the 2007 Bowl-O-Rama included teams from Backpacker Magazine, Backpacker's Pantry, Big Agnes, Climashield, Cloudveil, EMS, Granite Gear, Honey Stinger, Mountain Hardwear, Osprey, PrimaLoft, REI, Sierra Designs and many more.

“The 2007 Bowl-O-Rama sold out quickly and everyone, bowlers and wallflowers alike, had a blast! The beauty of this event is that Leave No Trace can draw companies that compete head to head by day but can party together for a good cause by night,” said Big Agnes partner, Len Zanni.

Marking its third year as host of the annual Bowl-O-Rama, Big Agnes remains committed to producing innovative environmentally friendly products as well as fostering support for environmental groups like Leave No Trace, an educational, nonprofit organization dedicated to the responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors.

Leave No Trace's Deputy Director, Susy Alkaitis remarked, "Leave No Trace is committed to working with our key partner, Big Agnes, to fulfill our mission of responsible enjoyment and active stewardship of the outdoors. Outdoor Retailer is an ideal venue to reach out to our constituents and we truly appreciate the hard work that Big Agnes commits to organizing and hosting the annual Bowl-O-Rama fundraiser for Leave No Trace. This event represents substantial support on a multitude of levels, and we look forward to seeing everyone out there bowling for the cause again next year!”

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.
