Animal-loving actress, Kristen Bell, is excited to honor the international veterinarian team, Gorilla Doctors, an organization that is saving mountain species of gorilla “one patient at a time.” Bell will be hosting a benefit for the organization in November.

The “Gorilla Love” benefit will take place in Beverly Hills, California, on November 4, 2013. Attendees of the event can meet the Gorilla Doctors team, bid on travel and culinary packages in a silent auction, nosh on appetizers and cocktails, and mingle with fellow animal lovers.

Ticket prices start at $225. Funds will go toward supporting Gorilla Doctors’ important work in Rwanda, Uganda, and the Democratic Republic of the Congo. The program cares not only for gorillas in critical need, but also the people living and working near the national parks. As explained on their website, “Caring for people and animals in this way, we strive to empower Africans to become future wildlife leaders.”
