Tickets are $75 for general admission, $100 for VIP, and $45 for volunteers and staff.

Check out volunteer opportunities, which include cooking prior to the event and working that day. You will be sent a volunteer discount code after signing up.


The auction opened for bidding on February 21. It features a wide range of items including farm sanctuary tours and stays, gift cards to vegan restaurants, jewelry, household items, fitness gift certificates, and more. More items are coming in all the time. Keep checking and place your bids!

What to Expect

The reception, which starts at 5:30, features hors d’oeuvres, a wine ring toss, cakewalks, drinks, a cash bar, and bidding on auction items. 

At 6:30, the online auction will close, and dinner begins. Tongue in Cheek is creating a unique vegan and gluten-free meal not available on their regular menu. During dinner, CAA volunteers and staff will share inspiring stories about our work for animals and our community.

RSVP on Facebook here. Winning bidders can pick up auction items at the end of the banquet. Items can also be shipped for a small fee.

Since 1998, CAA has spared the lives of over 1 million animals. Through dedicated efforts of volunteers and staff, plant-based options have been added to school and restaurant menus, thousands have pledged to eat vegetarian or vegan, and the annual Twin Cities Veg Fest has inspired thousands to choose, and keep choosing, plant-based foods.
