"We're using this special occasion to applaud how far we've come, but also to continue our mission of revealing the truth behind factory farming practices, saving animals from abusive conditions, and changing how society views and treats farm animals,” said president and co-founder Gene Baur.

Farm Sanctuary has planted the seeds for its upcoming 30th anniversary fundraiser in Beverly Hills. Kevin Nealon is on board to host while TV star and entrepreneur Kat Von D will take home the Compassion in Action Award and local vegan standout Crossroads Kitchen will be honored with the Inspiration Award. 

Tracey Stewart and Emily Deschanel serve as co-chairs of the gala, to be held at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel on Nov. 12. The event will feature a 100 percent plant-based dinner using Gardein products paired with live entertainment and a farmer’s market style gift station to encourage guests to cut down on waste and take home the products they will use most.

"We're using this special occasion to applaud how far we've come, but also to continue our mission of revealing the truth behind factory farming practices, saving animals from abusive conditions, and changing how society views and treats farm animals. With tireless advocates and co-chairs, Tracey Stewart and Emily Deschanel, we are looking forward to raising awareness and further advancing our cause in Los Angeles, country-wide and beyond,” said president and co-founder Gene Baur.

Farm Sanctuary operates a 26-acre Los Angeles area shelter along with sanctuaries in Orland, Calif., and Watkins Glen, NY. The organization seeks to educate people about farm animal abuse and the effects of factory farming on general health and the environment. According to the organization, Jon and Tracey Stewart will open a location at their New Jersey farm sometime next spring.
