Inaugural Bonobo Benefit Bar Hop

On May 21st, 2009, "Team Bonobo" put together an Inaugural Bonobo Benefit Bar Hop for BCI. Our event took place in the neighborhood of Adams Morgan in Washington, D.C. at Town Tavern and Madam's Organ. The purpose of the event was to raise awareness and funds through cover charges, raffle drawings, and selling bracelets.

Throughout the evening, attendees enjoyed hearing a presentation about BCI's work, viewing a photo slide show, being entertained by a magician, participating in karaoke, entering a chance to win raffle prizes, and mingling with others interested in bonobos, conservation and the Democratic Republic of Congo.

We are very proud of our first fundraising event and would like to thank all the businesses (see flyer for a list of our sponsors) who donated fantastic prizes to help us raise funds for BCI's work in the Congo.

Thank you to everyone who attended and especially to all the volunteers and interns who helped organized the event! Keep an eye out for our next fundraising event, BBQ for Bonobos, this summer!

  1. Congratulations on a successful event, BCI! I wish I could have been there. We'll see if we can get something similar happening in Australia!
