Vegan Christmas Gala & Fundraiser

December 12, 2019 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Experience an evening of elegance, festive entertainment, and a memorable first-class dinner to ring in the holiday season. The Gala will take place at renowed Italian eatery Vegano tucked away in Montreal’s very own Little Italy.

Dinner guests will enjoy an exquisite 3 course meal of authentic Italian dishes including an appetizer, main course, and dessert (coffee & tea included). Vegano is a bring your own wine establishment so bring your favorite drinks to enjoy with dinner.

Guests will have the opportunity to enter a raffle and win some very amazing vegan prizes to take home!

All proceeds of the Gala will be donated to the #MinkTrial legal defence fund to help cover legal fees for Malcolm Klimowicz. Malcolm is scheduled to stand trial next year in Kingston, ON and if found guilty could spend up to 10 years in prison.

Last year Malcolm entered 5 Canadian fur farms and filmed shocking animal cruelty. The horrifying videos were shared with police but instead of helping the suffering animals, several police departments punitively laid bogus charges against him as punishment. In addition a judge issued a gag order which stopped media from reporting on the trial and Malcolm was also struck with a civil law suit by a fur farmer for thousands of dollars.

Similar video footage realeased to the public in Norway lead to the country banning fur farms. Malcolm’s investigation into the Ontrio fur industry generated dozens of news stories and headlines showing the public for the first time the horrifying reality of animal cruelty on fur factory farms.

Please support direct action for animals and Malcolm as he fights the fur industry in court! More info about the #MinkTrial can be found at www.endfurfarming.com
