Thanksgiving FOR The Turkeys – Sunday November 17, 2019 from 1-3

We are very excited for our Annual Thanksgiving FOR the Turkeys Event on Sunday, November 17, 2019 from 1-3.  Back by popular demand we will be having a vegan chili cook-off with Village Taco, Seitan’s Realm and Woodhouse Vegan as contenders as well as a silent auction, time to mingle with the animals and meet and mingle with other like minded animal lovers. And as always, you are welcome and encouraged to bring a vegan desert to share!

This event is our largest fundraiser of the year. Every year, we save turkeys from being on a plate and allow them to live the rest of their natural lives in peace and loved here at the Sanctuary.  In addition to celebrating these magnificent beings, this event helps us to raise money to pay our feed bill for the winter.

We charge admission to this event to raise money for the Sanctuary, but, instead of a fixed amount, we are letting you choose the admission price that is right for you by buying a virtual item of food the animals need and you will have the option to make an additional donation either online or at the event.  But hurry, tickets always sell out and we do not want you to miss this! Ticket Prices are:

$6.00 – Representing 1 Bale of Straw

$8.00 – Representing 1 Bale of Hay

$14.50 Representing 1 Bag of Pig Food

$18.00 – Representing 1 Bag of Equine Food

$37.50 –  Representing 1 Bag of Waterfowl Food

Please join us in thanking the amazing corporate partners who are donating items for our silent auction! We are always overwhelmed by the generosity of our supporters. Please check back often, donors being added up to the event and please support them as a way of thanking them for supporting us!
