Rock It Out: A Night to Benefit New York's Farm Animal Sanctuaries

If any of you are located in or near the New York area, I am in the midst of working on something very exciting - my very first self-produced fundraiser. The cause is one very close to my heart - New York's amazing farm sanctuaries - The Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary in Woodstock, NY and Farm Sanctuary in Watkins Glen, NY. I've been wanting to make this happen for some time now, but an excuse would always pop up to keep me from pursuing it - I'm too busy now, who's gonna come to this thing?, maybe down the line... but then I realized, if not now, when? And now, I've got a real live ticketing page, I've sent numerous emails out, and I've even got a facebook invite up. I feel very grown-up and proud. But not too proud, of course, because I need a lot of people in the seats for this thing.

That's where YOU come in - if you live nearby and are free that night, please come on out for this. It's not very often that both of these sanctuaries are recognized at the same time at a fundraiser, and I think it will be a very special evening to behold. I already have a bunch of awesome singers lined up for live performances, a bake sale (which, as we all can remember from grade school, is always a good thing), and a raffle with prizes ranging from a copy of the film Food, Inc, to a gift certificate to Blossom, one of New York's fanciest and most delicious vegan restaurants. 

I'll probably blog about this event again as it nears, but for now, I wanted you all to know about this. All the info's below, and it would mean the world to me to have any Kiss Me, I'm Vegan! followers at this thing, since you are always such great supporters anyway.

Thanks a bunch guys and gals - and keep fighting the good fight!

Knowing you put your heart and soul into whatever you undertake, I'm positive that this is going to be a huge success and a wonderful fundraiser for the two Farm Sanctuaries! Phil and I will see you and Steve there!

I won't be able to make it, AZ is a bit far away, but I have been a fan the Woodstock Sanctuary and Dan Piraro for years. I wish you success on your worthy endeavor.

If you can think of anything else you want me to bring for the "food", or donation end it, let me know. I orderd organic vegan chips for the chocolate melt for the cookies...online :)

love you and Steve..see you soon.

PS: We'll take pictures Dr. Myers! I couldn't find your blog when I went looking the other day. Do you still have it?
