I wanted to ask all Primatology.net readers that live in or around the San Francisco Bay Area, or will be visiting to please consider attending a fun-filled evening of art, music and delicious food in support of the Gorilla Foundation. It will be held on Tuesday, November 18, 2008 at the 111 Minna Street Gallery in San Francisco. Silent auction items include signed prints made by Koko, hotel stays, wine, restaurant gift certificates, museum and performing arts tickets, an exclusive Raiders package and a two hour-ride in the KGO jet helicopter around the Bay Area.
Proceeds will benefit the Gorilla Foundation, my previous employer, whose mission is to bring interspecies communication to the public. They also have programs to help save gorillas from extinction and inspire our children to create a sustainable future for all great apes.
Here are the details:
Advanced tickets are $15, and $20 at the door, please visit Koko.org/event for more details. I’d be attending if I were in town, but unfortunately I’ll be flying out that morning and unable to make it. But I ask that you attend, food will be provided by Pasta Pomodoro, Scharffen Berger Chocolate Maker, Joseph Schmidt Confections and music will also be played. Sounds like a great fundraiser and I’m bummed I can’t make it.
