Galarama + Silent Auction: Benefit for Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest

PORTLAND, OR -- May 25, 2013. Vida Vegan Con weekend would not be complete without its fundraiser for an animal sanctuary, the Galarama. This open-to-the-public night of music, food, and fun will support Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest.

This casual evening features a cash bar featuring BridgePort craft brews, creative plant-based snacks, and the So Delicious Dairy Free Sundae Bar Spectacular. Emcee Brian “The Sexy Vegan” Patton and DJs Harry Skelter and MelisserAGoGo will set the scene for the Silent Auction, which includes items such as hotel and restaurant gift certificates, art, handbags, and food items, from donors including Susan Nichole and Bob’s Red Mill.

The Galarama will be held Saturday night, May 25, 7:00-9:30 p.m., at Staver Locomotive (2537 NW 29th Ave., Portland, OR 97210). The event is all ages.

General Admission tickets are available at (VIP spots have already sold out.) Featured beverage donations, mobile food cart participation, and silent auction items are being sought. Contact for more information.

Vida Vegan Con, the vegan blog conference, is held May 24-26, 2013, bringing together more than 300 vegans from all over the world. The inaugural event received a 2011 VegNews Veggie Award as a “Vegan Lovefest.” The 2011 Galarama raised thousands for its beneficiary, Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary.

Vida Vegan LLC is an independent body formed by Janessa Philemon-Kerp, Jess Sconè, and Michele Truty to foster vegan inspiration, education, and community.

Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest was founded in 2003 in Cle Elum, WA, to provide lifetime quality care for formerly abused and exploited chimpanzees while advocating for great apes.
