Speciesism Recap

Our Dinner and a Movie event Friday night was a huge success!  Fifty-five people came out for Greek spreads and bread dip (thanks for the donation, Voula!), Buddha Bowls from Red Fern, and cupcakes from Happy Cakes, followed by a showing of Speciesism: The Movie, and then a talk by its director Mark Devries.  Thank you to everyone who attended, everyone who bid in the silent auction, and to the item donors.  Thank you to Cam F. Awesome for MC-ing and Mark Devries for bringing his film and speaking.  We were glad other VegFest speakers Mike Stura, Kerry Graff, Ted Barnett, and Jo-Anne MacArthur could attend.

Thank you to Jack & Meg for donating two tickets. Thank you to organizers and everyone who helped out or brought stuff either to use, eat, or donate: Mary, Bubbie, Deb, Kim, Darren, Mike, Leanne, Robyn, Varun, Andy, Michael, Rosemary, and Ted. People helped in so many big and little ways I can’t possibly list everything everyone did.

2017 Rochester VegFest Recap

Wow!  Roc VegFest rocked!

Saturday, September 16th was a beautiful, hot day and we estimate over 1,000 people came out for Rochester’s first annual VegFest at Martin Luther King Jr. park downtown.

There were 43 vendors, nine speakers, and we showed the film What the Health.  There was a huge raffle, kids activities, tons of food, and free samples.  We heard from many people that they decided to go vegan after attending, and I think everybody found new favorite companies and organizations.

Everyone is looking forward to Rochester VegFest 2018!
