This just in from The Red Avocado, Iowa City’s only all-organic restaurant: their final fundraiser of October will benefit Farm Sanctuary.  Join the folks at The Red Avocado for dinner on Wednesday, October 29th, and 50% of their profits from the night will go to benefit Farm Sanctuary.

As The Red Avocado explained in their most recent e-newsletter,

Farm Sanctuary works to end cruelty to farm animals and promotes compassionate living through rescue, education and advocacy. They envision a world where the violence that animal agriculture inflicts upon people, animals and the environment has ended, and where instead we exercise values of compassion.

Iowa City resident Elizabeth Cummings just returned from a two-month volunteer stint at Farm Sanctuary. She helped care for the pigs who survived the flood of Oakville, Iowa, back in June. Elizabeth will provide a slide show, briefing of her time at the NY shelter, and answer any questions you might have.”

Other upcoming events include:

Wednesday, October 14th @ 6:30pm: Dr. Ron Robinson will present a seminar on Home Remedies for the Family at The Eastwind Healing Center (above The Hotel Vetro, 221 E College, Suite 211, Iowa City).

Saturday, October 18th @ 6:30pm: Dr. Will Tuttle will present a lecture on the benefits of a plant based diet at The Unitarian Universalist Society of Iowa City (10 S. Gilbert Street, Iowa City). Refreshments from The Red Avocado and New Pioneer Co-op served at 6:30pm, lecture to follow at 7:30pm. Dr. Tuttle is the author of ‘The World Peace Diet.’ For more on Dr. Tuttle, see www.worldpeacediet.net.
