Vegan Finger Food Fun for Children & Adults 7pm this Saturday!
(Great ideas and details below)
$5 per adult plus raffle tickets. Raffle prize donations welcome (Cookbooks are always popular)!
Once again Don and Alessandra invite you and your family to our home to share holiday time with the VegSarasota family.
We have 2 goals this year. Have fun as a community and raise money for next year.
Fun! We will have games on the tables for kids and adults, Christmas and dance music, and an outdoor kids movie if the weather cooperates. The only room to sit will be outside, so please dress for the weather. A change this year is that we encourage finger foods, as we simply do not have space for 90 people to sit and eat. We will provide dinnerware, cups, chips n salsa, holiday nog, ice tea and some yummy tapas.
Fundraising! We will have great raffle prizes and a silent auction from the Lucuma Designs gallery to raise money. Look for a separate email about the VegSarasota budget and goals, but if you want to see Vegsarasota tabling at more local events to promote the humane, health and environmental benefits of a vegan diet, we need money for booth space, food samples and most of all brochures.
Bring one Vegan* Hors d'oeuvres or Appetizer per adult (to share with 10-12 people) and your favorite festive drink. Please post what you’re bringing. Children are welcome. We suggest you bring their favorite drink too.
