A Vegan Evening at Owamni Grows CAA’s Impact for Animals

June 27, 2024

On Saturday June 22, forty-six people enjoyed a delicious meal, connecting with fellow animal advocates, and moving CAA’s work for animals forward during A Vegan Evening at Owamni. A description of the evening and photo slideshow are below.

Food, Community, and Presentations

The evening featured a four-course menu of Indigenous food from the award-winning restaurant along with a presentation on Owamni’s mission and each of the dishes from restaurant staff. Guests had a wonderful time visiting with each other while enjoying family-style dining.

There was also a presentation about the impact of CAA’s work for Minnesota’s farmed animals from treasurer and volunteer Hannah Milos as well as executive director Laura Matanah. Hannah and Laura’s presentations emphasized the critical role of volunteers and donors in helping us reach our goal of inviting one million Minnesotans to take action for animals by 2027.

Impact for Animals

The Stray Dog Foundation offered a generous match of up to $50 per gift for gifts made at the event. Ticket sales, gifts, and the foundation’s match combined to raise over $5,000 to move CAA’s work for animals forward.

Longtime donor Ann Frisch commented, “I give to CAA because I see the ways you’re making a difference.” Our impact for animals is illustrated in our annual report.

We will continue to host similar gatherings on an annual basis. Many thanks to all who attended for helping to grow our compassionate community and making a difference for Minnesota’s farmed animals!
