Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale Wrap-Up

Friends of Animals, Sarah Kramer and the Victoria Vegan Fest volunteers would like to thank all who came out to our April 28th Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale Day event, the third time we've done this! (In the previous two, we raised nearly $2500,  which has printed 4,000 of our Vegan Starter Guides for distribution in the city!)

Thanks to a small army of generous and imaginative bakers, we had three tables full of goodies, and while we fell short of our ambitious goal, by my count we raised $1039.98, which will go towards the Vegan Fest. (Total raised is now $1160, with the previous Purple Rain movie night!)

This included a raffle, with a ton of amazing prizes donated to us, organized as usual by the Victoria OrganicAthlete chapter.

A big thank you goes out to super-star volunteers Paulina, Paradox and Ashley, and a special mention of Jon K who must have eaten the most goodies. ;)

Enjoy the photos below, and join our email list to keep posted on our events, or join our Facebook group page to engage in local topics. (Full photo gallery here.)


More fund-raising events coming soon, including more movie nights, Scrabble Tournament, and more!
