Friday and Saturday, December 5 and 6
ARAUNY tabled at this fair again this year – always a great fundraiser. This year we were selling tote bags, beautiful jewelry, buttons, delicious baked goods, gently used AR books and t-shirts, and more. Everything was popular! We sold many, many raffle tickets for a raffle basket containing $25 worth of cruelty-free personal care products such as soap and lotion, and a $25 gift certificate to The Red Fern vegan restaurant. The raffle winner was a young lady in the 19th Ward, who reportedly had just the evening before been feeling overwhelmed by the non-vegan holiday treats around her and wishing she could indulge herself at The Red Fern (remember their dessert display?).
This is also an outreach event for us, so of course we had flyers on hand, for those who would like to know more about animal issues in Rochester.
And remember, our participation also benefits Metro Justice. Everybody wins!
Thanks to those who staffed the table: Lois and Greg, Peg and Craig, JohnMark, and Tina. Thanks to all who prepared items to sell, and extra thanks to Lois and Greg for all the preparation, setup, and cleanup.
