Focusing on action, education, and outreach to inspire respect for animals, CAA touches hundreds of human lives and saves thousands of animal lives. Through the dedicated efforts of CAA volunteers, thousands of leaflets are distributed to increase awareness of the plight of factory farm animals, hundreds of individuals pledge to try vegetarianism, social gatherings are held to bring like-minded people together, and inspirational speakers from across the country educate the public about those who cannot speak for themselves.
The event begins with a reception featuring a selection of delicious hors d'ouevres and complimentary wine. During the reception, bid at our silent auction featuring artwork, gift baskets, services from local vendors, and more.
The reception is followed by a gourmet vegan dinner. During dinner, CAA will give a short presentation on our work in 2011 and our plans for 2012. Please purchase your tickets to reserve your meal!
