Alison asked me to put up this event info so here it is! I will be away so cannot attend unfortunately but you guys have fun! :)
This event is NOT organized by Veg Meetup Vancouver.
Celebrate a 3rd annual vegan Compassionate ThanksLiving Potluck this year with the Animal Voices radio crew and supporters by partaking in this feast of thanks and bounty. Build community and share delicious nourishment with like-minded people. Socialize with new and old friends over a selection of live musical entertainment. All are welcome to attend!
Date: Monday, October 14th, 2013
Time: 6-8:30pm (doors open at 6, eat at 6:30pm)
Location: Oakridge SDA Hall, 5350 Baillie Street, Vancouver (close to Skytrain & bus routes. Free parking in the back parking lot.)
This is an animal-friendly event, so bring a vegan dish with at least 8 servings (no dairy, eggs, honey, gelatin, whey/casein, or other byproducts). Also, please bring a plate, cup, and cutlery for yourself, and a serving utensil for your dish. (a bag for your dirty dishes would be useful, too) If you’re not a cook or are pressed for time, no worries! Sharing store-bought food or a non-alcoholic drink (juice, non-dairy milk, coconut water, etc.) is fine! Please bring an ingredients list for your dish. There will be a 'raw' section on the tables, so raw vegan food is encouraged!
140 people attended each of the last two years, and this year we have a wonderful venue that can accommodate up to 200. It is a family-friendly event, so please bring your loved ones!
This event will feature a fabulous RAFFLE fundraiser. Please bring some $ for a chance to win some amazing prizes!
We suggest a DONATION of $3 at the door (no one turned away for lack of funds). All profits go towards supporting Animal Voices.
There is a special entrance for wheelchairs leading from the right side of the parking lot straight into the hall. The accessible washroom (doorway measuring 27″ wide) is located one level up. Don't hesitate to ask a volunteer for any assistance needed.
This event can't happen without a big crew of VOLUNTEERS! If you're willing to step up and help out, email Alissa and Cynthia: [masked] Your assistance is very much appreciated.
