Animal Acres animal sanctuary will hold its annual gala next month, starting with a festive “Cowtail Party” where celebrity hosts, award recipients and Gala guests will meet and mingle with the sanctuary’s “guest of honor”- over 150 rescued cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, sheep and goats.
Expected to attend the event are comedian Tom Papa, Shelley Morrison (Will & Grace), Thora Birch (American Beauty), Kevin Nealon (Weeds), Hector Elizondo (Chicago Hope), Joely Fisher (Til Death), Elaine Hendrix (Joan of Arcadia), Sara Rue (Less Than Perfect), Hal Sparks (Queer as Folk), Wendie Malick (Just Shoot Me) and many other farmed animal friends.
The award ceremony – which is co-chaired by Ellen DeGeneres – honors individuals and corporations who have made outstanding contributions through their commitment to the cause of protecting farmed animals and promoting compassionate living choices. This year’s awardees include Actress Shelley Morrison, “Quantum Wellness” author Kathy Freston, who prompted Oprah Winfrey to do a 21-day vegan cleanse, and Animal Acres volunteer and author/health advocate Bobby Rock.
The event takes place at the Animal Acres Sanctuary, 5200 Escondido Canyon Road, Acton, California on September 5. More information can be found here.
