As well as being a wonderful night, Cherish our Chimps – Zoofari 2013 was also a great success. With the generous support of guests, sponsors and foundation supporters the Taronga Foundation raised a total of $297,000 through ticket sales, auctions, lucky key sales, raffle and pledges. Indeed, it is a testament to the enormous loyalty and generosity of so many regular donors and supporters, together with the enthusiasm of new supporters, that this major fundraising event was so successful.
Thank you to the fabulous MC’s for the event Simon Reeve and Samantha Armytage.
As always we couldn’t achieve such a great result without the hard work and dedication of our wonderful Zoofari committee;
Chair Terry Kaljo
Dominique Cerrone Parisi
Funds raised will be directed towards breeding and conservation projects to assist Chimpanzees at Taronga Zoo and in the wild.
