If you’re signed up for our e-news, you should have received an email yesterday from me about our year-end fundraising goal with a match pledged by our amazingly supportive board of directors, who play the vital role of guidance and oversight for the sanctuary.
As usual, Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest donors have exceeded all expectations, and we’ve blown past the original goal of raising $10,000 (NOT including the board’s matching donations!) by midnight tonight.
As I said in the email yesterday, supporters are truly the roots of the sanctuary that allow us to remain strong and grow into the future.
In celebration of exceeding this year-end fundraising goal (you can still add to the total before midnight tonight), and in anticipation of the exciting year to come, we felt it was appropriate for the chimpanzees to have a toast!
Instead of champagne, we gave them one of their favorite special occasion drinks – sparkling apple cider.
Cheers to everyone!!! Bottoms up!
We wish you all a very happy and healthy new year!

Wonderful, as always!! I hope these dear chimps and their fabulous caregivers and volunteers have the very best new year. Looking forward to hearing all about the adventures of the Cle Elum 7 in the upcoming year. Thank you so much for sharing them with us all 🙂

Wow Diana, that’s a reason to celebrate! We hope the chimps and everyone at CSNW enjoy a New Year filled with Good Health, Love and much Joy! Thank you for all that you do.
I raise my glass with my beloved Cle Elum Seven in celebration of the New Year and all the magical wonder it holds in store! Cheers! Can’t wait to see what 2017 holds. Happy New Year!????????

wonder if sparkling apple cider tickles their nose and that’s why its their favorite drink? Wishing the 7 and their caretakers a very Happy New Year and looking forward to another year of fabulous photos and videos
