SBFPS Baseball Tournament a Huge Success!!!

Hi everyone!

Proud to say SBFPS is in its 7th year of hosting our annual baseball tournament in Sunderland, and this year was bigger and better than ever! With 8 teams of 10 people each, and the community to cheer them on, we withstood sweltering near 40 degree heat all in the name of rescuing monkeys!

We had a merchandise booth, as well as a silent auction, all next to the food and drinks, our biggest hit on this hot and humid day.

And to top it all off, we brought in well over our projected target, and fundraised near $4500!!!!!!
Thanks to all the teams that played and contributed, all our supporters and donors, and especially the following companies who donated to the tournament:

Oshawa Community Credit Union
Planet Organic
Chem Dry(Leslie Barrett)
Westburne Ruddy Electric (Travis Paddley)
Black Diamond Golf Club (Andy Sandilands, Ponty Pool)
Goats Milk Soap Company (Anne Dubois)
Metro Toronto Zoo (Ann Walsh)
Sunderland Pharmacy
Foodland Cannington (Kevin Fasolino)
FreshMart Sunderland (Rick Flindall)
Loblaws Lindsay Market (Margaret McRae)
Staples Depot Lindsay 

We couldn't have done it without you!

Sweet Pea and her new Baby Chimpanzee!

Sweet Pea, our Olive Baboon, received a wonderful new present on our last Open Day. In fact, it was a motorized, life size, baby chimpanzee!!! It even made noises! Pea loved this so much she decided to groom it and carry it wherever she went, in typical Pea style. Thanks so much to Kimberly for this fantastic gift!!

Pierre and the baboon in the mirror!

Pierre loves to look at the baboon in the mirror. He smacks his lips together and postures in front of the handsome fellow he sees there. The only thing that distracts him is the tractor - he hates the tractor!
