Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages Fundraiser

From the Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages:

Some of you are new to this newsletter so long story short: we had a place for our fund raiser at an Irish pub in the west 40s. We sent out invitations two weeks ago and the next thing we knew, the manager told us that he had received threatening calls from the carriage industry warning him not to host the party ... so he canceled.

BUT WE ARE ON! The Coalition to Ban Horse-Drawn Carriages is having a fund raising party on the evening of Tuesday October 14th and we hope to see you there.
Location: Mantra986 at 986 Second Avenue between 52nd and 53rd Streets - on the 2nd floor
Date: Tuesday October 14th
Time: 6:00 PM to 10:00 PM
Our MC for the evening will be Irish comic Fiona Walsh and her team of Ann Design and Liam McEneaney
Music - by Joy Askew and Nellie McKay
Special Guests - Councilmember Tony Avella and Blinders' director Donny Moss
Enticing vegan food provided by Blossom, Candle 79, Caravan of Dreams, Franchia, Kates Joint, Mantra 986, Pongol, Streit's Bakery, VP2, VSpot, Whole Earth Bakery, Zen Palate
cash bar.

Silent auction with appealing and interesting items to be sold to the highest bidder
We are delighted and very appreciative that Tony, Fiona, Joy, Nellie, Donny, Ann and Liam have made themselves available for this great cause - to free the carriage horses. A big thanks to all of them.

Tickets are $30 on line -- or $40 at the door. Please click here to buy your tickets now. All proceeds will support the Coalition's various campaigns aimed at ending the suffering of the carriage horse.

Thanks to all of you for your support - those who continued to buy tickets; those who sent e-mails; and the many who suggested new venues. I am very appreciative and touched by all of you. With this kind of energy and good karma, I have no doubt that we will win freedom for the horses! Thank you.
