Announcing OCPA?s Halloween Zombie Walk for the Animals!

This Halloween, support the animals while having fun! Join in Orange County People for Animals' Halloween Zombie Walk for the Animals, and help raise money and awareness for animal protection while competing for amazing prizes and taking part in a fun vegan dinner and after-party. Enjoy a great Halloween with fellow animal lovers ? and support a cause you believe in.

OCPA?s Zombie Walk is a fun, costumed walk on Sunday, October 31, 2010, from 3 pm to 9 pm. We?ll start and finish at Happy Family Restaurant, 1400 Bristol Ave in Costa Mesa [masked]). See amazing costumes, compete for great prizes, and enjoy a tasty vegan dinner! We?ll dress as zombies, animals, evil corporate mascots, or anything else creative, and walk to South Coast Plaza and back (about a five-mile trip). Those who wish can hold signs or pass out leaflets to raise awareness of animal issues.

Don?t want to walk five miles, but still want to help? Participate at any level or in any way you want. You can still help raise money even if you don?t walk ? just talk to an organizer about having a proxy walk for you. If you skip the walk, feel free to show up at 6 pm for dinner. If you want to help raise money but can?t make the walk OR the dinner, that?s fine too! Please consider participating in any way you can to help OCPA raise money for its important work.

Admission to the dinner and after-party are free for anyone who raises $100 or more ? otherwise, just pay $25 and enjoy all the great vegan food you can eat.

Funds raised will support OCPA?s ongoing campaigns, including: abolishing cat dissection in schools; stopping puppy-mills; and supporting spay and neuter programs. OCPA is a 23-year old group staffed entirely by volunteers. One hundred percent of donated funds support animal protection and awareness.

Some of our important campaigns include promoting spay and neuter programs, stopping inhumane puppy mills, and ending cat dissection in public schools.
