Vegan Drinks Philly, this Monday!

Vegan Drinks Philly

3.23.09 @ Horizons (611 S 7th St) 5:30 - 9:30 pm

Hi everyone!

This is just a reminder that Vegan Drinks Philly will be taking place in about two days! I hope everyone is excited!! There are a few announcements to be made:

First, we will have LIVE music! It will be an acoustic set by Jack Myers. Check out a video of him playing at the World Cafe Live here:

Also, there will be raffle and there are many great prizes that will be given away! ALL of the money collected will benefit the Humane League of Philadelphia and Chenoa Farm Animal Sanctuary. I have been involved with the Humane League for some time now and they are doing a great job with vegan outreach here in Philadelphia, in addition to the many other projects they have underway to advocate for animals. I also recently got the opportunity to visit Chenoa Manor and was touched by each and every animal that has the honor of living there. Unfortunately, the awesome guy who makes it all happen will be unable to attend this event, but I thought it would be great to get some money together in order to help rebuild a 200 year old barn at the sanctuary that will be used as housing for some of the animals. This project is going to cost approximately $200,000, so our help is greatly needed! Some of the items to be raffled off include:

a signed copy of This Crazy Vegan Life by Christine Pirello
a $30 gift card for
a Whole Foods gift bag valued at $50
an Essene gift card for $25
a signed copy of Making a Killing by Bob Torres
and a full reiki session!

even more prizes are yet to be announced!

Vegan, vegetarian, and veg-curious ;) The goal is to create a strong network of like-minded individuals to influence each other and create a movement towards improvement of human health, a greener earth, and most importantly freedom from oppression for ALL animals! ;)

See you there!
