Darbster Bistro in Boca Raton, will host a benefit dinner for Farm Sanctuary, with special guest, Gene Baur, Co-Founder and President of Farm Sanctuary. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, May 13, from 5:30 – 7:30 p.m., and will include a buffet dinner, and a presentation by Gene Baur. Greenlands Variety Store will sponsor the live music, and provide gift bags with free samples of vegan products. Tickets are limited and can be purchased at http://www.darbster.eventbrite.com
Gene Baur has been hailed as “the conscience of the food movement” by Time magazine, and is the author of Farm Sanctuary: Changing Hearts and Minds about Animals and Food. Since the mid-1980s, he has traveled extensively, campaigning to raise awareness about the abuses of industrialized factory farming and our system of cheap food production. His most important achievements include winning the first-ever cruelty conviction at a U.S. stockyard and introducing the first U.S. laws to prohibit cruel farming confinement methods in Florida, Arizona and California. His efforts have been covered by top news organizations, including The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, and The Wall Street Journal. Gene holds a bachelor’s degree in sociology from California State University, Northridge, and a master’s degree in agricultural economics from Cornell University.
Farm Sanctuary was founded in 1986 to combat the abuses of factory farming and encourage a new awareness and understanding about farm animals. Today, Farm Sanctuary is the nation’s largest and most effective farm animal rescue and protection organization. Farm Sanctuary is committed to ending cruelty to farm animals and promoting compassionate vegan living. Nearly 1,000 animals are sheltered on three sanctuaries operated by Farm Sanctuary.
Darbster opened its first location in West Palm Beach in 2009, and second location in Boca Raton in 2013. 100% of the profits from both restaurants are donated to the Darbster Foundation, which assists in animal welfare and animal rights efforts through education, charitable contributions and direct sponsoring of spay and neuter programs.
