C’est La V to be at the Animal Acres Gala


I’m so excited to finally be able to announce that C’est La V Bakeshop will be providing desserts at the Animal Acres Gala on September 12th!  Animal Acres has a very special place in my heart, and I’ve really been looking forward to the Gala.  Unfortunately, due to the fires that are currently burning in the Los Angeles area, they’ve had to evacuate all of the animals and can’t return until at least September 15th.

The Gala was going to be held at the sanctuary this Saturday (Sept. 5th), but because of the evacuation they’ve had to find another venue, as well as change the date.  There are still a limited number of tickets available, so get yours before they’re all gone!

The Animal Acres Gala is particularly special to me because it was at the Gala three years ago that I first unveiled the new vegan line I’d created at Leda’s.  I’m really looking forward to being there again, this time under my own company’s name.  It’s not often in life that you get such a full-circle moment.

If you’re able to purchase tickets, know that they go to a great cause.  Animal Acres was able to evacuate safely because they planned for this by allocating donated funds.  In a recent email they write, “Our annual Gala provides almost half of the funding needed to operate our shelter annually – and now we have even more animal care costs because of the evacuation.”  If you aren’t able to attend this event, you can still donate to the sanctuary or even adopt an animal there.  The costs that have resulted from this fire have really set them back, and they’re in desperate need of donations.
