Banquet 2012 Desserts
Join Compassionate Action for Animals at our Annual Banquet, celebrating 17 years of advocating for animals.

Focusing on action, education, and outreach to inspire respect for animals, CAA touches hundreds of human lives and saves thousands of animal lives. Through the dedicated efforts of CAA volunteers, thousands of leaflets are distributed to increase awareness of the plight of factory farm animals, hundreds of individuals pledge to try vegetarianism, social gatherings are held to bring like-minded people together, and inspirational speakers from across the country educate the public about those who cannot speak for themselves.

We have a new format and location for this year's event! The check-in table will open at 5:30 pm. We will have a gourmet dinner from 6 to 7:30pm, followed by a reception from 7:30 to 9:30pm.

Tickets for the gourmet dinner have already sold out, but there’s still room at the more affordable reception that starts at 7:30pm. It’s only $10 and includes dessert, drinks, a short presentation, and a silent auction featuring artwork, gift baskets, services from local vendors, and more. You can pay for your silent auction items with cash, check, or credit card. The reception is also a great chance to meet other animal-friendly people in the Twin Cities.

If you already have a dinner ticket, that ticket includes entry to the reception.

All the food served at the event is vegan. This year, we will have gluten-free options for the dinner and dessert. If you would prefer a gluten-free dinner, please make sure to request a gluten-free dinner when you register.
Any dish may contain trace amounts of gluten or nuts. If you have a severe allergy, we cannot guarantee that you will not be exposed to an allergen.

This event is sponsored by The Herbivorous Butcher, and our VIP dinner will feature some of their delicious meatless meats.

The banquet will be held at the Wellstone Center located at 179 Robie Street East in St. Paul.
