I just bought tickets to an event that sounds really fun, and I wanted to spread the word for those who live in the general area. It’s called Pints for Pigs Peace, and it’s a fundraiser to support the wonderful Pigs Peace Sanctuary. The event is going to be held at Central Cinema (1411 21st Avenue in Seattle) from 2:00 to 5:00pm on Saturday, January 11, 2014. There is going to be a screening of the film, Babe, which I’m excited about as I’ve never seen it on the big screen. There is also going to be a documentary about the beautiful work being done by Judy Woods at her sanctuary, Pigs Peace, in Stanwood, Washington. On top of all that, there’s going to be beer and wine, vegan “pigs-in-a-blanket” and vegan pizza. Something for everyone, to be sure!
When we first moved to the area, Queenie and I visited Pigs Peace, and it was a glorious afternoon. These lucky pigs have landed in an extraordinary place, 39 acres of piggie heaven! They have options galore as to where they hang out, wander and sleep. The sanctuary is gorgeous, a mix of meadows and forest, and it did our souls good to spend time out there. We also had fun giving belly rubs to those who wanted it!
The founder of Pigs Peace, Judy Woods, is doing incredible work, shouldering the vast majority of the sanctuary’s to-do list herself. She has volunteers who help, and she relies on donations, fundraisers and the profits from the vegan grocery store, Vegan Haven (one of my favorite places on earth!) to keep the place running. This fun event is a great way to help support this work and connect with kindred spirits.
