Turkey-free Thanksgiving

This year, START will host the Turkey-free Thanksgiving "Evening for Animals" annual silent auction fundraising event.

The price is $17 if paid in advance, and $20 at the door. Children under the age of 12 eat for free.

Bring your appetite. Also bring a dish to feed 20 and get in free. Wow us with your culinary skills by bringing your favorite vegan stuffing. If you'd like to donate a few hours of your time, you can also eat for free by helping out in the kitchen beforehand. Please send Jackie (co-organizer) a message if you can help so she can add you to the list and make a note of it for the START organizers.


The menu is the following:  Match celebration roast, savory mushroom gravy, sweet potatoes, quinoa, cranberry & butternut squash casserole, mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, field green salad, corn cakes, bread stuffing, mulled wine, Schlafly beer, coffee, tea cranberry/grape juice, and desserts.

The event will feature a silent auction. Arch Vegan meetup members are welcome to donate a good or service of their specialty and in return, you will be allowed to advertise your product or service with cards next to the silent auction item donated. So if you have products or skills you would like to sell as Christmas gifts, this would be a great way to promote them to an audience that would love to support vegan businesses.

Also let Jackie know if you want to make a donation so she can notify the START organizers as well.

    AV members - remember, the $17 price is only for those who pay in advance. START isn't comfortable relying on RSVP's, so they will honor the $17 price for payments in advance only.

    It would only let me RSVP with 2 guests, what's up with that? I guess I will have to leave my 5 year old at home while the rest of us are enjoying this meal?!?! ;)

      Ok - I updated the settings to allow up to four guests. It defaults at two guests and we neglected to update it when setting up the meetup. Sorry for the mix-up.

      No problem, thanks for fixing!
