Primates, Inc. is pleased to present our first major event to raise needed funding for our sanctuary. It’s THE party of the year to help care for our primate residents and open our doors to other monkeys in need of sanctuary. Eat, drink and be merry to help animals – what could be better!

With your generosity and support, our goal is to raise $50,000 for our monkey rehabilitation and refuge.
