Chimpanzee Photography Experience & Online Auction Opening Soon

I mentioned the other day that some 2013 HOOT! auction bidders had cashed in their photography experience at the sanctuary that they won at the gala. Right now, we are gearing up for our Summer Biddin' online auction. While we don't have a photography session, we do have a really amazing and unique experience to bid on: a Backstage Pass to the Sanctuary! Bidding for all items opens Thursday morning, and items are still being added, but you can and should (right now) check out how you can help us throw a spectacular Summer Lovin' Party for the chimpanzees and get some perks for yourself in the process. Back to Saturday. Martha and Susie were the first winning bidders for the photography session. They had a great time at the sanctuary learning some new photography skills from photographers Karen Ducey and Dean Rutz. They set up photography camp on the observation deck and learned the ropes of the professional equipment that Karen and Dean generously loaned. Martha and Susie taking aim Martha and Susie practicing Martha and Susie happy And they got some really amazing photos!! Below are just a few. Annie: Annie on young's hill Foxie: Foxie pull up Foxie on platform   And birthday-girl Missy, looking like her athletic self: Missy on fire hose   Not only was it Missy's birthday on the day they visited, it was also Martha's! Karen was kind enough to bring a birthday cake, which of course we adorned with some CSNW style: Martha's bday cake   Martha and Susie also took a walk with J.B. around the hill with Jamie of course following on the inside of the fence. Ellie the elk was hanging around the property and joined them too: Ellie, J.B., Martha, Susie   You just never know what adventures await at the sanctuary, especially on a party day, which is why you should get ready to bid on the unique Backstage Pass experience and help us throw a great end-of-summer party! You don't have to wait until Thursday to make your Summer Lovin' party donation - do it today!
