AND THE WINNERS ARE…EVERYONE ASSOCIATED WITH WAKE UP WEEKEND!
Three cooking demonstrations, four lectures, five vegan food sampling events, and a chili cook-off later, Wake Up Weekend 2014 is history! With a combined event attendance of approaching 700, the turnout was stellar for a beautiful weekend in April during which we know you had many other options! We are so grateful for your participation! HEARTFELT THANKS go out as well to OUR EXCELLENT SPEAKERS and to everyone who pitched in to make our events a big success! That’s YOU, Calvin College Office for Multicultural Affairs and Office of Community Engagement, Our Kitchen Table, Students for Compassionate Living, and Vegan Grand Rapids! And YOU TOO, Malamiah Juice Bar, Brick Road Pizza, Wednesday Evening Cookies, Bartertown Diner, Bloom Ferments, and Love’s Ice Cream. Extra SPECIAL THANKS are due to Tofurky, Beanfields, Field Roast, The Christian Vegetarian Association, Mercy for Animals, and VegFund for their generous support of our vegan food sampling and chili cook-off events. What a weekend!
To the winners go the spoils! And here at Wake Up Weekend, everybody wins: human beings, animals, and the planet! Stay tuned for updates on next year’s exciting line up, which will WAKE US UP to the many and often hidden intersections between and among animal rights, disability, and the other! MANY THANKS AGAIN & SEE YOU SOON!
