Highlights from our magazine launch party!
Despite the bone chilling cold (it was 9 degrees), 150 of our friends and subscribers (who we also consider friends) came out to celebrate the launch of our magazine! Over 60 sponsors and volunteers donated their time and talents to help prepare delicious vegan food, drinks, a rockin’ goodie bag, great music, and a raffle to raise money for Tuff Tails Animal Rescue. It was tons of fun. Were you there?
Party all night!
