Despite the weather keeping some of our friends and a couple of wineries from attending the event, this year’s Sippin’ for the Seven was a great success and a whole lot of fun!
Minus expenses, we raised $7,270!
This money will be used directly for the care of the Cle Elum Seven chimpanzees. The event comes at a slower donation time, so it’s a great boost to our general fund that keeps the sanctuary running.
The Swiftwater Cellars venue was just perfect for this event, and I can’t wait to share photos from photographer Ron Sullivan.
Mark your calendars for next year – February 25, 2012.
I’ll be posting the thank yous soon, but here’s a little something to share in the meantime –
