ThanksLiving is our most anticipated gala event of the TL2015_Cacioppo-41-XLyear where we honor our rescued turkeys and celebrate creative innovations in vegan cuisine.  It includes passed hors d'oeuvres, a multi-course gourmet vegan meal, an open bar with wine and beer, a silent auction and raffle, and more--all to raise vital funds for the animals and our sanctuary!

This year marks our 12th annual ThanksLiving benefit at our sanctuary in High Falls, New York. We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Rachel Klein of Miss Rachel’s Pantry in Philadelphia for our banquet this year! And we’re delighted to welcome back Maresa Volante of Sweet Maresa’s and Confectionery! in NYC serving elegant and gorgeous vegan desserts!

Join us to celebrate another year of lifesaving rescue, shelter, and advocacy work at Woodstock Farm Sanctuary. This year, we’ll also be celebrating the work of honoree Jane Velez-Mitchell of Jane, best-selling author and nationally known TV journalist who covers crimes against people and against animals.

Tickets start at $250 each for General Admission, you may arrive as early as 1pm and the Banquet Hall will open at 2pm for passed hors d'oeuvres. We also have made available some VIP ticket levels that include a behind-the-scenes tour with our directors before the benefit, and underwriting in our printed program. Tickets are named after some of our beloved animal residents like Dylan the steer, Fern the goat, and Clyde the rooster. 

Don't miss the chance for an exclusive Behind-the-Scenes tour to meet the animals before the event and pre-bidding on our silent auction and raffle packages with a purchase of a VIP Level ticket or table!

This is our largest fundraiser of the year, and funds are needed now more than ever at our sanctuary in High Falls. No discounted “kids” price will be offered for children who occupy a seat. Since this is our gala benefit, the recommended age for attendees is 14+. Tickets are non-refundable.

Corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available! Please email
