Hip Hop mogul Russell Simmons is to host a very special event for Farm Sanctuary later this month as a compassionate benefit for turkeys – who get a tough time around Thanksgiving every year.

Celebration FOR The Turkeys will take place at Tavern on the Green in New York City on November 22, and will feature guest speaker Jonathon Safran Foer – author of “Eating Animals” – and special guests Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, Peter Max and Ally Sheedy.

According to the organizers, the event will feature: "An elegant vegan brunch at the landmark Tavern on the Green from noon – 5 p.m. in Central Park. Our holiday meal, with menu design by Candle 79 served “family style,” will be followed by a festive reception featuring a spiced cider, hot cocoa, holiday nog, and desserts from the area’s favorite vegan pastry chefs and a Silent Auction for all your holiday shopping needs!"

Farm Sanctuary is an organization committed to combatting the abuses of factory farming and to encouraging a new awareness and understanding about “farm animals.” The charity advocates for laws and policies to prevent suffering and promote compassion, reaching out to legislators and businesses, and working to bring about institutional reforms.
