PETA’s 40th Anniversary Gala and Holiday Party
On December 12th, PETA celebrated their 40th Anniversary with a twist, and I’m sure you know what that twist was! Yes, it was online, but the magic was still in each and everyone’s room, streaming online as if we were all together in a great dining hall. The evening began with a red carpet walk of the animals that PETA works tirelessly to represent and save. Alan Cumming was the MC and he did an amazing job of opening and closing the festivities.
There were a few touching moments throughout the evening including Joaquin Phoenix and the Phoenix family accepting an award on behalf of the late River Phoenix. A spotlight also shone brightly upon some eye-opening legal cases highlighting PETA’s undercover investigation and legal team’s achievements. And the night came to a powerful close with Alan singing a lovely Scottish song!
Those of us who attended the event were struck by knowing that while PETA’s work is far from over, what the organization has accomplished over the last 40 years has left a positive impact on the world. Congratulations PETA and Happy Anniversary! Thank you for all that you do!
