From San Francisco, it is about an hour North on HWY 101; you can also take Golden Gate Transit bus 80 to the Cotati hub.

Join us April 14 at 5:30 PM for the third annual benefit for Esperanza de Libertad. We will have a vegan dinner, a slide show presentation by United States Project Coordinator Stella Sythe, and a silent auction. Blackbird Stitches will play talismanic dirt folk, and Best Witches women’s choir will sing. We will have activities for children and will sell vegan snacks. A $20 donation is suggested, or $30 including dinner. Nobody turned away for lack of funds.
Come support this women-run project that was started by Stella Sythe, a longtime Sonoma County resident.
Stella’s exciting slide show presentation illustrates Esperanza de Libertad’s mission of rescuing wild animals from captivity and rehabilitating them, and shows our progress towards building our sanctuary. It also gives a fascinating and educational look at life in Bolivia.
Our first two benefits were a lot of fun and were great successes. Esperanza de Libertad’s first benefit raised money to buy 115 acres of land in Bolivia. Our second benefit raised money to build volunteer housing.
Now we have a beautiful building, and we’ve planted gardens and fruit trees on the land. We’ve hired a guard and his family to live on the land, protecting it from illegal hunting and logging. We also have two young rescued monkeys! This year’s benefit will raise money for operating expenses, including paying the guard and feeding Tomi and Preto, our first resident monkeys.
We are looking for volunteers to help at the event and for donations to the silent auction. For more information or to donate, call 481-5386.
