Rescued December 2023

We are very excited to see our friends on the East Coast again! The pandemic forced us to take a hiatus from hosting back east and we are thankful to be returning to New York City. Please join us as we celebrate 25 years of chimpanzee rescue, care and protection!

Festivities include:

~ A presentation by Dr. Sheri Speede highlighting the past two and a half decades as we look ahead into the future

~ Silent auction

~ Hosted hors d’oeuvres

~ Wine, beer and non-alcoholic beverages (one free drink ticket with the purchase of an event ticket)

~ Most importantly, a fun evening with friends who are dedicated to saving great apes from extinction!

By attending this event, you will directly help the 80 chimpanzees currently in our care as well as the animals living in the forest we protect. Thank you for your continued friendship and support!
