This year marks our 11th annual ThanksLiving benefit at our sanctuary, now located in High Falls, New York.

We’re thrilled to announce our partnership with Craig Cochran of Terri restaurants in NYC for our banquet this year! And we’re delighted to welcome Maresa Volante of Sweet Maresa’s in the Hudson Valley and Confectionery! in NYC and her elegant and gorgeous vegan desserts!

See the menu

As this is a benefit and funds are needed now more than ever at our new sanctuary in High Falls, there is an increase in ticket price over 2015. Every seat equals dollars raised for our operations, so no discounted “kids” price will be offered if they occupy a seat. Since this is our gala benefit, the recommended age for attendees is 14+. Thanks for your understanding!

me headshotCraig Cochran has been a tour-de-force in the NYC vegan scene with over 13 years of opening and running pioneering restaurants.

In 2010, he co-founded Terri, the first all vegan fast food restaurant in NYC. Terri now has three locations. Craig is also the co-founder of Blackbird Seitan. Craig’s latest project is a full-service restaurant slated to open by the end of the year in which all profits will be donated to charity. 

Maresa Volante – Founder and Owner of Sweet Maresa’s and Co-founder of Confectionery

maresaSince 2011, Maresa has been whipping up breathtakingly gorgeous confections and defying all the conventions of vegan baking with her elegant and airy french macarons, decadent éclairs, and elegant wedding cakes.

Her bakery won Hudson Valley Magazine’s Best New Bakery in 2015, and she’s been taking the world of vegan baking to new heights. This year, she opened Confectionery! in Manhattan, a joint venture between Sweet Maresa’s and Lagusta’s Luscious serving organic and fair trade vegan sweets. Her baked goods are also on offer at Lagusta’s Luscious and Commissary! in New Paltz, NY.
