To the Rescue! Los Angeles
April 22, 2017
5555 Melrose Avenue, Hollywood
Our To the Rescue! Los Angeles event benefits The Humane Society of the United States and its Farm Animal Protection campaign. The Humane Society of the United States is the nation’s most effective animal protection organization. Since 1954, The HSUS has been fighting for the protection of all animals through advocacy, education and hands-on programs. In partnership with our affiliates, we rescue and care for tens of thousands of animals each year, but our primary mission is to prevent cruelty before it occurs.
Working to give a voice to farm animals, The HSUS is making history for farm animals, reducing the number of animals raised and killed for food by helping large institutions, such as school districts and hospital chains, implement popular campaigns like Meatless Monday. We are also working with major retailers to reduce animal suffering in their supply chains by helping them phase out the worst factory farming practices. And of course, The HSUS routinely conducts undercover investigations into the hidden world of factory farming and slaughter plants, and takes legal action to stop factory farming cruelty. With your support, our investigations and legal actions have led to slaughter plant closures, meat recalls, criminal convictions, and new state and federal laws.
Supporting our Farm Animal Protection campaign, the evening will include a cocktail reception, gourmet vegan dinner and live auction. Honorees include U.S. Senator Cory Booker–recipient of the 2017 Humanitarian of the Year Award–and a special tribute by Emmy Award-winning singer, Rachel Platten, to the late Christina Grimmie–recipient of the Impact Award–which will be accepted by her family. Guests will also enjoy a moving performance by singer and animal welfare champion, Noah Cyrus.
We are so grateful to Chair, Jolene Rapino, for her outstanding contributions on this truly defining event. Please join Jolene and the Leadership Committee, along with the Humane Generation Los Angeles Committee, for this incredible night to help save animal lives.
