For the last couple of years, the Sequoia Humane Society has been hosting a fundraiser called the 'Humane Gourmet'. I haven't attended personally in the past, but I've heard that it's an upscale vegetarian meal, plus entertainment (live music, I think?) and some kind of auction event. In the past, the vegan offerings have been somewhat scarce, but things are set to change this year. (Yay!)
The event will take place at the Eureka Women's Club, beginning at 6:00 p.m.
This year's chef will be the wonderful and talented Jennifer Raymond, who runs the Humboldt Spay/Neuter Network and has authored various vegan cookbooks including The Peaceful Palate. (I also give Jennifer full credit for my own conversion to veganism some eight or so years ago.)
Thank in large part to Jennifer's involvement, this year's menu will be almost completely vegan. I'll post ticket sales information here as soon as I have it, but in the meantime I want to help get the word out that Jennifer is looking for volunteers to help with food preparation, food serving, clean-up, etc. If you would like to volunteer your services for this exciting fundraiser, or if you have any questions, please contact Jennifer directly.
