On October 24, 2009 over 100 DuMond Conservancy supporters enjoyed an event to benefit our nocturnal night (owl) monkeys.
Dr Sian Evans welcomed the guests and described how primates have intrinsic style. They are naturally adorned with silky, golden coats, iridescent rumps, sunshine yellow gloves and socks, snowy white head dresses and the cutest ear muffs imaginable. Their beauty is undeniable. Humans are naked apes but we were fortunate to have Banana Republic to bestow us with perfect style. Models from Triton Modeling Agency showed off the Banana Republic’s Holiday Collection to the perfect music selection of DJ Craig Peter. Guests enjoyed hors d’oevres by Exceptional Catering and sipped delicious tropical wines courtesy of Schnebly Winery. Guests also enjoyed unique personal encounters with monkeys in Monkey Jungle’s lush Rain Forest exhibit.
The event was underwritten by South Beach Construction, Inc.
