$1,846 Raised for Farm Sanctuary!

Sunday, October 21st, 2007

Just wanted to thank all of you who supported the 10/13 SF Walk for Farm Animals benefitting Farm Sanctuary.

In particular, thank you to those who signed up for our team, “Animals are Friends, not Food”: Summer, Laura, Doug AnnaLise, Monica, Alexandra, Scott, Linda, Robin, Rebecca, Ariel, Justin, Sarah, Winnie, Lori, and organizers Tammy & Chris.

The idea to have a BAVeg team was a mere month before the event started, and this was the first time we had ever organized a team for an event like this. And it was actually only 2 weeks before when we finally sent out our first organizing email.

Team Name: Animals are Friends, not Food
Organization Name: Bay Area Vegetarians
Team Online Total: $1,846.00

BAVeg also donated 2 Ultimate Guides for the Farm Sanctuary walk, one went to Scott as our team’s top fundraiser and the second was a raffle prize available to the general walk participants.

If you would like to lead the BAVeg team for next year, please email Tammy .

New “Vegetarian” restaurant in the heart of Napa.
