Earlier this month, I had a fantastic time shooting the Farm Sanctuary 25th Anniversary Gala at the Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. Farm Sanctuary is one of my most favourite organisations and I was so thrilled to be back shooting another gala for them.
Among those in attendance were James Costa and John Archibald, Dorr Begnal and John Talbot, Jesse Eisenberg, Corey Feldman, Rory Freedman, Kathy Freston, Bonnie-Jill Laflin, Carol Leifer, Nellie McKay, Wendie Malick, Eric Roberts, Ally Sheedy, Loretta Swit, Jane Velez-Mitchell, Fred Willard, National Shelter Director extraordinaire, Susie Coston and of course, President and Co-Founder of Farm Sanctuary, Gene Baur.
The celebration also marks the launch of the Just Eats Tour; Gene will be travelling from New York City to Orland California exploring vegan America. He’s travelling in the very VW van from which he sold veggie dogs at Grateful Dead concerts and was used to rescue Hilda the sheep, the first animal Gene rescued from the stockyards.
Congratulations to Farm Sanctuary on 25 years of tireless work rescuing and advocating for farm animals and promoting a kinder, more compassionate world through vegan living. Here’s to many more years and many more lives saved!
