Tweet Share on Facebook

December 1, 2013

On November 24, over 325 hungry vegans, vegetarians and veg curious got together to celebrate great friends, good food and a very Happy Plantsgiving making this year's Compassionate Thanksgiving our largest yet! What were your favorite parts of Compassionate Thanksgiving? The mingle bingo? The music? The missionary chocolates? We'd love to hear from you! Visit us on Facebook and Instagram to join the discussion. Please share pictures that you personally took at this amazing community event and remember to use #nwveg.

It took more than 50 volunteers to help the night run smoothly and we would like to take a moment to thank a few of them: Thank you to our fearless leader Deanna Cintas for all the time and effort she put into making this year's Compassionate Thanksgiving the best yet! Thank you to Steve Hetzel for providing his lovely musical talents, to Deb and Scott Kay for donating the beautiful squash and gourd center pieces, to Susan Bliss for leading the decorations team, to Jill, Linda, Rachel and Kim for staffing the Northwest VEG info and membership tables, and to Chelsea Davis for her help with volunteer and overall coordination and to the countless volunteers who helped with setup, cleanup and at the food tables. We would also like to extend gratitude to Big Weekend Calendars and Missionary Chocolates for their generous prize donations for this years Mingle Bingo. See you all next year!
