You’re invited to the Mercy For Animals Hope Gala—our very first virtual gala! We will celebrate 22 years of working to create a compassionate food system with a one-of-a-kind experience. The Mercy For Animals Hope Gala will take place on Thursday, June 10, 2021. All are welcome!
Our guests will include influential leaders from entertainment and business, as well as philanthropic and animal protection communities around the globe. The evening will be an opportunity to recognize our tireless activists and investigators, enjoy celebrity entertainment, and connect with a caring community in hope.
Because of the ongoing pandemic, we decided to cancel all in-person events until health and safety recommendations change. We’re still excited to bring you an evening of inspiration, storytelling, and community to benefit the animals who need our help.
As a virtual event, the Hope Gala will be accessible to many more people, regardless of their time zones or access to transportation! You can enjoy this momentous occasion from the comfort of your couch, so party with the stars while leaving your keys on the dresser and your car in the driveway.
Not Another Zoom Call
This incredible experience will be so much more than just another Zoom or Webex call. Immersive and interactive, the event will allow guests to connect with our mission and the Mercy For Animals community. The event platform will enable guests to stream the event live; engage with fellow guests via chat and video at virtual tables; and take real-time action, such as participating in the donor challenge or bidding on auction items.
The pre-event starts at 5 p.m. Pacific / 8 p.m. Eastern, giving guests time to settle in to their virtual seats and learn a bit more about Mercy For Animals. At 5:30 p.m. Pacific / 8:30 p.m. Eastern, the event begins!
