We’ve got a big week full of excitement planned here at the sanctuary. This Thursday we are celebrating the 11th year of the chimpanzees’ arrival at their forever home in Cle Elum. Of course, the chimps’ party planning committee is working hard to make the day special for them!
Here’s Jody during last year’s party forage:
We also celebrate Negra’s honorary birthday on the same day (June 13th). This week she will be turning 46 years old!
As if this wasn’t already enough excitement, staff, volunteers and many amazing supporters are all ending the week together in Seattle at HOOT! our big gala fundraising celebration. There are just a few tickets left in case you haven’t purchased yours yet. This year everyone gets to participate in the big day, even if you can’t make it to the actual venue. First, you can start by previewing what’s going to be up for auction here. Then, starting tomorrow morning at 8:00 a.m., you can get involved in the auction and start pre-bidding online!
So much to celebrate, we can’t hardly wait!

Burrito certainly looks verklempt!
Lol, in a good way!
Oh, what I’d give to be there! I hope “pasta cam” makes a reappearance at the chimps’ party, so that we can feel like we’re there! Have fun in Seattle!

Oh, what I’d give to be there! Hope “pasta-cam” makes a reappearance at the chimps’ party, to make us all feel like we’re there! I’m getting a box ready!
I wish I could attend the 11th anniversary celebration and Negra’s 46th birthday with you. Please know I will be celebrating with you from afar. Dear Neggie, 46 years young. I hope she has a joyous celebration — may peanuts rain for the sky! Best of luck at this years HOOT too. Soooo much excitement in one week!
