Ithaca's Vegan Bake Sale

As part of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale series of events, a vegan bake sale will be held this Saturday, June 27, on the Commons from 10:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. I hear there is a plethora of delicious vegan goodies lined up!

Proceeds will help Chuck Pappas, a former Farm Sanctuary employee who sadly had to quit his job last March after being diagnosed with Stage IV brain cancer. You would not believe how expensive treatment is, and how little of it is covered by insurance. We need to help Chuck get better so he can get back to helping the animals. Chuck's plight is detailed on the 300 miles for Chuck blog as well as Chuck's own blog.
