Dear Friend of Jungle Friends,

We are VERY excited to announce the event of the season! The Hippodrome Theatre in downtown Gainesville, FL is screening Project Nim in conjunction with Jungle Friends Primate Sanctuary's Born to be Wild Monkey Art exhibit next month! We will also have a VIP (Very Important Primate) Jungle Jamboree at the Hippodrome opening night.

There will be lots of yummy vegan food, entertainment, raffles, Monkey Art auction and the bar will be open. You will also meet Robert Ingersoll, the hero of the film. The Born to be Wild Monkey Art Exhibit at the Hippodrome will run from September 20 - October 3. The monkeys are already painting for the big event!

Project Nim runs Friday, September 23 - 29 at the Hippodrome. We will feature film discussions with Robert Ingersoll (Bob) following the thought-provoking film. Bob will be staying with the monkeys at Jungle Friends during the screening.

Our VIP Jungle Jamboree fundraiser will be held at the Hippodrome opening night from 4:00pm – 6:30 pm. For a donation of only $25 (or $40 per couple) you can join in the festivities and meet Bob ‘up close and personal’. The first showing of Project Nim will be at 6:30, after the VIP Jungle Jamboree. Between shows, Bob will have a Talk Back, so all of your questions will be answered. The proceeds will go toward our Expansion Project.

Please make a donation toward our Expansion Project to purchase the 20 acres behind us to rescue the monkeys on our waiting list! The property is 'Perfect for Primates'!

Equal parts hilarious, poignant, and heartbreaking, Project Nim not only tells a compelling story masterfully, but also raises the flag on the darker side of human nature. – RottenTomatoes.com

Lots of monkey love,
Kari and the monks
