Mark your calendars--the Second Annual Heartland Farm Sanctuary Gala is coming up August 10,2012!
If you follow Vegan Milwaukee on Facebook, you probably saw photos from my visits to the Sanctuary and realized that I'm in love with that place! As an animal activist, I'm so happy that we have such a great organization nearby in the Madison area that is not only saving farm animals, but also reaching out to their community to help educate people of all ages about how special each and every one of these creatures is.
Now, let's talk about this Gala! This is a huge event held at the Madison Concourse Hotel (fancy!) that includes a formal dinner (both vegetarian and vegan options offered), live entertainment, and live/silent auctions. The vegan meal sounds fantastic--it includes "a mouth-watering mixture of rosemary polenta and grilled summer vegetables, topped with zesty basil puree."
Tickets are $60 per person or $100 for a pair. All the proceeds go directly to the Heartland Farm Sanctuary to help save more animals like Toby the calf who I'm feeding in the picture below. Tickets will be on-sale until July 24th, but make sure you get yours before they sell out!
You can buy tickets directly online or by printing out the PDF form and sending it in. Please let them know that Vegan Milwaukee referred you in the "Referred By" field.
Hope to see you there! :-)
