2009 PAHS Events
Sunday, October 25 – Flute Recital by Takashi Hidai.
Join us for this annual special fundraising benefit for PAHS. This year’s concert honors the memory of JP Blanchard, a local Palo Alto student who loved animals. Takashi is a four-time winner of the Best Performer Yamaha Award in Julius Baker's Master Class, and a longtime supporter and friend to PAHS like his wife Mitsu. Palo Alto Art Center, 1313 Newell Road in Palo Alto, at 4 p.m.
October 12-18, World Rainforest Week
Tropical forests around the world continue to become endangered, and a chief reason for this is the expansion of industrial animal agribusiness. Now is a critical time to act on behalf of the world's rainforests; the lungs of the planet. Tell multinational corporations to stop altering the face of our world by becoming a conscientious consumer and voting with your dollar. Learn how industrial animal agribusiness directly impacts the destruction of our rainforests and what implications this has to the global health of the planet. Join us in celebrating the forests and their inhabitants by becoming conscientious consumers of food and product. Our Humane Planet initiatives will be providing more information on this issue.
October 4 – Humane Planet Expo
Join us on World Animal Day as we expand what it means to be humane in today’s world with our Humane Planet Expo. PAHS is partnering with several groups to connect current issues involving animals, people, and planet while enlightening solutions. Actors, face painting, puppet shows, a mobile pet vaccination and microchip van, and delicious vegan cuisine by certified partner Calafia Cafe will join information booths, speakers, and more. Some of the topics to be covered will include humane pet laws, water health and ecologic biodiversity, animal agribusiness and climate change, the power of food choices, and bees and colony collapse disorder. Stay tuned as more is announced! Humane Planet Expo, October 4, 12 P.M. to 4 P.M., Cogswell Plaza in Palo Alto (corner of Lytton and Ramona). Click here for a full schedule!
