A couple weekends ago I photographed the Wine With The Swine Event at CJ Acres Animal Rescue Farm. The event was held to help raise awareness about animal activism and to tour their farm. About 80 people attended the event and it was a huge success! It was such an amazing experience to see kids (and adults!) interact with animals, to touch, feed, and be awed by their beauty.
I think it's important for us to interact with animals (other than our pets) to truly understand why it's so important to fight for their rights. You realize how loving and caring they are. They all have such unique personalities. Some of them are moody or giddy just like us!
The event consisted of a 3-course dinner served by Vegan 2 Go in Gainesville, FL. Talk about being spoiled with the most amazing dishes and dessert! And not to mention the wine! Everyone loved the food and I think there weren't too many leftovers!
Between each course, everyone got to see each section of the farm. After the first course, the attendees got to interact with the horses and pigs. After the second course, the attendees then got to interact with the cows and feed them bread! It was a delight to see. Who knew cows loved company?! Then they all sat down for dessert and the results of the silent auction were presented.
The silent auction was such a success and I am so happy that the farm raised money for the animals!
The fundraising event had an amazing turnout.
Everyone loved the vegan food cooked and served by Vegan 2 Go in Gainesville, FL.
I truly hope this has inspired you to also fight for animals rights. They can't speak for themselves so we must do it ourselves.
