Saturday, September 6th, Emily Deschanel will appear at the Animal Acres 2008 Gala, which is a fundraiser for the Animal Acres Emergency Rescue Fund which plans to build "a 14-stall Rescue Center barn to significantly increase the sanctuary's rescue and rehabilitation efforts for suffering farmed animals."
The festivities will begin at 5:00 pm with the "Cowtail Party", where celebrity hosts, award recipients, and Gala guests meet and mingle with the sanctuary's "guests of honor" - over 150 rescued cows, pigs, turkeys, chickens, sheep and goats. Gala guests will then gather in the sanctuary rose garden to enjoy a gourmet dinner sponsored by Madeleine Bistro, one of L.A.'s premier vegan restaurant. The Gala menu includes baby lettuces with candied walnuts, chardonnay cheese and poached pear vinaigrette, and Grilled lemon-rosemary seitan with ratatouille, polenta, and smoked paprika crème.Sounds like a fun and interesting event. She's both beautiful and tirelessly giving!
