Farm Sanctuary’s 25th Anniversary Gala

event on
May 14 at New York City’s renowned Cipriani on Wall
Street.


As the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization,
Farm Sanctuary has
worked for 25 years to protect farm animals from cruelty, inspire change in the
way society views and treats farm animals, and promote compassionate vegan
living.

 

The Gala is a celebration of vegan food, compassion for farm animals, and the tireless efforts of several champions in the movement. David Lee, chef and president of the innovative food company The Field Roast Grain Meat Company, will be working closely with the chefs at Cipriani to create an inspired, delicious vegan menu. Farm Sanctuary will share these sumptuous recipes with the public after the event to further demonstrate how vegan food can be elevated to new culinary heights in the hands of chefs like Lee – and how to replicate it on your dinner table.

About Farm Sanctuary

 

Co-founded in 1986 by beloved animal protection icon Gene Baur, and funded initially by sales of veggie hot dogs from a VW van at Grateful Dead concerts, the once fledgling, all volunteer organization has grown to become the nation’s leading farm animal protection organization, with more than 230,000 members and supporters. A few of Farm Sanctuary’s achievements include:
Being the organization responsible for bringing farm animal issues into the mainstream consciousness
Urging passage of the first U.S. laws to protect animals on farms
Initiating the first cruelty convictions at stockyards and slaughterhouses
Establishing the largest rescue and refuge network for farm animals in North America
