Local Farm Sanctuary Events-New Changes This Year!
- Please cross-post-
Hi. We are excited to announce some new changes to the FS Fundraiser
Dinner and Silent Auction. We have received several requests from
local businesses that would like to exhibit at our event. In an
effort to encourage networking among local groups, businesses, and
organizations, we are expanding the event to include tabling for those
groups and individuals interested. This is a great opportunity to
reach out to veg/vegan and eco-friendly consumers interested in
supporting and joining local groups and organizations. Details are
included below and are also at www.azvegan.com
Now...even more exciting news...
We currently have over $10k in Silent Auction items donated this year!
We have everything from gift baskets, to water storage units, to
relaxing nights at a bed and breakfast. We encourage you to check out
the ever changing list of items at www.azvegan.com

New This Year!! A large part of the work of Farm Sanctuary is
outreach to both individuals and other groups. In an effort to
promote networking with other local groups and businesses in Arizona,
we are offering tabling opportunities to those interested. The table
will be included with the purchase of a $25 dinner ticket. We invite
you to bring your mailing lists, materials, banners, and anything to
promote your group or local business. We do require that the item or
services being promoted are vegan and animal friendly. Also, since
100% of the proceeds from the Fundraiser Dinner and Silent Auction go
to Farm Sanctuary, we cannot allow you to sell anything, but this is a
great opportunity to network with other groups and individuals and
reach out to a wide audience. Please email azvegan@... if you
are interested in reserving a table. Space is limited, so reserve
your space today!
