David Attenborough leads Hope for Apes
21 February 2013

Sir David Attenborough is to host a special gala dinner in aid of the Ape Alliance, of which the Gorilla Organization is a key member.

The one-off event will be held at the Savoy Hotel in Central London on the evening of Friday 27th September. As well as a champagne reception, guests will enjoy an a la carte dinner in the Lancaster Ballroom, accompanied by live music. They will then be able to bid on art created by the acclaimed wildlife artist Daniel Taylor, including on one piece he will create on the night itself.

After dinner, guests will retreat to the Savoy's Parlour Room, which will be transformed into an indoor forest for the evening. Here, the Ape Alliance will demonstrate the Pedal Powered Cinema which has brought great ape conservation films to an estimated 300 million people worldwide. As well as being able to view exclusive excerpts from the groundbreaking 3D documentary film 'The Last of the Great Apes', guests will be invited to power the mobile cinema themselves.

VIP tickets for the event are still available through the Ape Alliance. All proceeds will be used to fund the purchase of six more Pedal Powered Cinema units which will then be used to take the message of conservation to rural communities situated within walking distance of gorilla habitat, as well as the habitat of orang-utans and chimpanzees.
