Friday November 17th, 2006 -- Medan, Sumatra -- After the Summit closed there was a break for about 90 mins before the Awards Dinner.

The event opened with a troupe of local dancers in costume.

There was musical inspiration from the Orangutan Caring Club members with guitar accompanied songs with an Orangutan theme.

Certificates of Appreciation were presented by OUREI Chairman Dr. Gary Shapiro to individuals and organizations that supported the CWS planning and operation. Other certificates were given to winners of OUREI sponsored competitions: the Orangutan Caring Scholarship (given earlier this year), and the Poster Contest first place winner.

The prestigious Pongo Awards for Significant Support to OUREI were presented to Mr. Soedomo, Mr. Ridhwan for himself and he also accepted the award on behalf of Angelina Sondakh, OUREI Ambassador.

The evening was a great way to crown the success of the last three days.
