Event Description: Hey all,

Animal Acres, the Paradise for Farmed Animals and the People Who Love Them, is having their annual benefit Gala on Saturday, August 25th, 5 pm - 11 pm.

Animal Acres is a farmed animal sanctuary and compassionate living center located just 45 minutes from Los Angeles. Animal Acres works to promote compassionate living through its farmed animal rescue and refuge efforts, public education and outreach, and advocacy projects to prevent cruelty to farmed animals. Since we opened our doors in 2005, thousands of people have visited the sanctuary and learned that farmed animals need protection, and love, too. You can learn more about them at www.animalacres.org.

Here is the description of the Gala event provided on the website:

Let?s glam up the farm by celebrating our annual Gala in style! We?ll have an enchanted evening filled with gourmet vegan delights, inspiring entertainment, and special appearances by Hollywood?s famous friends of farmed animals. Compassion awards, silent auction, and more. All proceeds benefit our Emergency Rescue Fund.

Gala Chairperson Jorja Fox and many other special friends of farmed animals invite you to the Animal Acres Gala on Saturday, August 25, for a truly memorable evening of dining and dancing under the stars in the beautiful sanctuary rose garden.

Los Angeles needs a farmed animal sanctuary and only YOU can provide it. Please help make Animal Acres a dream come true for suffering farmed animals by attending our annual benefit. Please note the registration fee for this event is $150. To register, please visit http://app.etapestry.com/hosted/AnimalAcres/EventRegistration.html
