This Sunday, November 11th, 2012 Farm Sanctuary will host their annual Celebration for the Turkeys at their newest location just outside of Los Angeles, Farm Sanctuary’s Animal Acres (5200 Escondido Canyon Road) in Acton, Calif. from 1:00 – 7:00 p.m. The festive event where turkeys are the guests of honor, rather than part of the menu, attracts hundreds of guests from all over the country seeking to celebrate a more compassionate holiday.

Farm Sanctuary has been giving turkeys a reason to be thankful for more than 25 years, but now with growing mainstream awareness of the deplorable conditions they endure on industrial farms, it is an idea whose time has come. So what will be on the menu? A gourmet holiday feast of favorite traditional Thanksgiving dishes, prepared with vegan ingredients; the opportunity to spend time getting to know the rescued animals who call Farm Sanctuary home; and special guest presentations from NY Times #1 bestselling Skinny Bitch author Rory Freedman, scientist and animal behavior expert Jonathan Balcombe, Ph.D., Farm Sanctuary President and Co-Founder Gene Baur, and Farm Sanctuary National Shelter Director Susie Coston. The highlight of the event, however, is the Feeding of the Turkeys ceremony, during which guests delight in watching our rescued turkeys gobble up a feast of their own! www.farmsanctuary.org
