Jill's is offering the following gourmet menu in conjunction for a fundraiser for Greenwood Wildlife Rehab Center. I think it is remarkable that they are doing this an all vegan event and hope the Veg community can come out in force to support this initiative.

$54.95 (not including tax or tip) This is a fundraiser. A donation with food being a great encouragement.
I've only had a 8 course vegan gourmet meal once at Millenium (SanFran) and that was many years ago, but still a fond memory.
I hope we can get a nice turnout for this fundraiser. There will be a lot of "low hanging kinda fruit, pregans" at this event and it is an opportunity to educate those that are committed to wildlife animals but eat other animals, equally as worthy of consideration. They just need to make the connection. I think it is stupendous that Jill's wanted to make this meal vegan so I hope the veg community can come out to support this elegant offering. And it is a donation to a great local non-profit that does a lot of life saving work with our local wildlife.
