A VIP reception starts at 5pm, featuring Katja Wargin’s incredible charcuterie, and the full party starts at 6pm with a cocktail and photo op hour during which Tracey and Ellie, the world’s cuddliest turkeys, will be officially pardoned by their own Assemblymember Richard Bloom. Assemblymember Bloom is responsible for the California bill that put pressure on SeaWorld to end orca breeding and for many other animal and environmentally friendly pieces of legislation. We are thrilled to have him with us.

There will be a special Awards Ceremony and new video presentation. You will be filled-in on the exciting projects for which DawnWatch is raising money - most exciting is the upcoming DawnWatch Media Awards Gala noted below - the recreation of the incredible Genesis Awards - letting the light shine out of darkness.

We’ll have a scrumptious vegan feast, featuring Karen's famous Tofurky chili and fabulous new pumpkin spice cheezecake, and drink and dance the night away with new friends – all of whom are friends of DawnWatch and animals!

It’s going to be a night to remember!
