Will Travel For Vegan Food is a blog run by Kristin Lajeuness. Kristin had an ambitious idea: to visit and write about every vegan restaurant in the United States. This simple concept grew into an epic journey which found her all over the country and in vegan restaurants of all shapes and sizes while living in a small van. With her adventure near completion, Will Travel For Vegan Food will hold a finale party in New York City which will double as a fund-raising event for Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, and tickets are now available.
This extravaganza will be held at the beautiful, 16th-story event space Top Of The Garden, located on West 30th street, a skip away from New York Penn Station. Jay Astafa, a vegan chef in New York City who caters and arranges pop-up kitchen events, will be providing the food for the evening. Bethelehem, PA based Vegan Treats bakery will be supplying the desserts. And there will be music, dancing, a cash bar, and other planned festivities that are sure to make it a great night for vegans to mingle and be together. Most importantly, the event will directly benefit Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary, which has been giving refuge to rescued farm animals since 2004. Their hard work has given homes to such creatures as Dylan, who we recently featured.
Tickets for the event are now available. The tickets are limited to 150 people, and the price options range from Like It ($45), Love It ($87) to Gotta Have It ($149). The higher the price range, the more treats and goodies you will receive from this fun evening. All proceeds will go towards the sanctuary, and help the volunteers and owners to give their 200+ residents the best care needed to live a long, full life. It’s a lovely way to both enjoy an evening and help out the animals who live as ambassadors for all those who suffer.
If you cannot attend the event, please consider donating to WFAS or sponsoring an animal. An anonymous donor is matching all donations until July 31st, which means whatever you donate will be twice the original amount.
Enjoy yourself, and give a hand in celebrating a vegan milestone while helping to raise funds for a great sanctuary!
