Buy a lassi, do some good! Until December 31st, buy a lassi from Veg-in YYC Cafe and $1.00 will go directly to The Alice Sanctuary. The lassis are available in a variety of flavours and two different vegan yogurt options! (Coconut or Soy). So many tasty flavours, but I think the peach with coconut yogurt is my favourite!

Organized by VegFest Calgary, a candlelight vigil is being held at Tompkins Park on Friday, October 21st, at 7:30pm “The vigil is meant to honour not only the victims of the Fearman’s accident, but to highlight the enormity of suffering that occurs through the meat and related industries.”

That’s it for this week, but I’ll have a fresh installment for you next Monday! I do my best to scour the web looking for items of interest to vegans in YYC, but I don’t always catch it all. So if you’re hosting an event, launching a new vegan business, option, or product, or you know about something that should be on this list, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org or you can leave info down in the comments.
