2014 Hoot! Gala
It was our first ever Hoot! Thanks for joining us on May 3, 2014 for a gala celebration and fundraiser like no other!
Thank you for helping us raise $179,000 for the chimpanzees!
Hoot! was held at the Bell Harbor International Conference Center in Seattle on Saturday, May 3rd at 6:00pm.
Why was the event called Hoot!?
A pant-hoot is a loud chimpanzee vocalization that is an expression of excitement. Listen and watch Jamie pant-hoot at the sanctuary.
