 “VW’s Going Ape 2011” is a Charity Event benefitting the Wauchula Center for Great Apes.  The event will be held in Wauchula Florida, on October 23rd, 2011, on the grounds of the wildlife sanctuary.

 The car show will be open to all models of Volkswagen and Porsche automobiles, from all years. It will be people’s choice style judging with an emphasis as much on the location of the show as the show itself.  Included in your car show entry will be a limited tour of the center, with an option for a more depth tour being available,

The Center for Great Apes’ mission is to provide a permanent sanctuary for orangutans and chimpanzees who have been retired from the entertainment and research industries, or who are no longer wanted as pets. The Center provides care with dignity in a safe, healthy, and enriching environment for great apes in need of lifetime care.

 This event is 100% for charity event, staffed and planned by volunteers that believe in the accomplishments of the center and its founder Patti Ragan. This is our way of welcoming the VW and Porsche community to get involved and come see what the center is all about! 

 More information will be posted on CFG's site as well as links for online registration and vendor/sponsor information.

 Please take and acquaint yourself with this great cause and watch the short video. You'll love it! We appreciate your interest in this new event and hope to see you there!
