VEG New Year!

From: Steve

Tremendous! Stupendous! Elation! Celebration!

That's right! The biggest VEG event of the year is coming up this weekend with the amazing RAW Spirit Festival ( at the magnificent 5-star resort, the JW Marriott Desert Ridge! We'll have the absolute time of our lives sampling the world's most-succulent and tantalizing foods, meeting inspiring people from around the globe, and listening to a multitude of trailblazing lectures, food demonstrations, and phenomenal musicians!

I can tell you that I've been to numerous past RAW Spirit Festivals, and I've had a joyous and memorable experience at each of them. (I also bought a ticket for this year's event immediately upon learning that it was coming to Phoenix; as I was thrilled to not have to incur travel expenses to go to this fabulous event out of town.) Please join me and hundreds of other VEG revelers on New Year's Eve weekend for all the fun! Tickets are available for the entire weekend or as a day pass.

Also, the festival is seeking people who can accommodate festival speakers and presenters in their homes for the weekend in exchange for half-price admission. If you can help out, please contact Happy at[masked]-2146.

And on New Year's Eve, please join us as we celebrate the coming of the New Year with our very own Annual VEGAN Appetizer Potluck and Wine Party at Diane's place in Phoenix! Please feel free to bring your favorite VEGAN appetizer and/or your own favorite beverage. Ring in the New Year with us!

And get a jump start on your New Year Resolutions for 2012 and help out a good cause, as VEG member Christine is raising money for her school, Liberty Arts Academy in Mesa - an A-rated Charter school for grades Pre-K to 8th. They are raising funds to help teachers in the classroom and purchase much-needed playground improvements.

Our members can get a 3-month, no-contract membership for just $20 (yes, $20!) at any one of the four Fitness Works ( locations in the Phoenix metro area (Glendale, Gilbert, Mesa, and Chandler)! Your 90-day, $20 membership also includes two weeks of free child care, 10 free tanning sessions, and four free personal training group sessions. When you go to the club with your fundraiser pass you will be issued a key card and be entered into the club system with your 3-month membership. Get one for yourself, or as a holiday gift!

NOTE: This offer is a fundraiser for Christine's school, so you must redeem this offer with her by calling or texting her at[masked] or emailing her at: [address removed] and she will deliver or mail your fundraiser pass to you. This fundraiser offer is good to purchase with Christine until January 20, 2012!

As always, in the coming year, any group member can schedule any event, 24/7/365. We just need a day, time, and location and your event will be promoted as a regular VEG group event. Just visit the VEG Meetup website and click where it says, "+ Suggest a New Meetup" (directly under where it says "Welcome, Phoenix Veg-friendly People") and then start typing in the details of your event; which will subsequently be announced and promoted to all members of the VEG group. Let's have a ton of VEG Fun in 2012!

Happy New Year!
