Out of the Box 2010 Gala Auction

Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest's 2nd annual gala auction was a HUGE success and so much fun! Including the very popular online auction, we raised over $100,000 for the chimpanzees. Thank you all for supporting this event and our fund-an-item project. Young's Hill, the two-acre habitat, is expected to be complete by the end of summer 2011. We could not have embarked on this life-changing project without the help of this event!
