Kickstart the World! Event

Lisa Osborne and owner of Casa de Luz, Wayo Longorio, hosted a fabulous dinner and book signing at the newly opened vegan restaurant on July 6. Casa de Luz promotes a philosophy of eating with integrity, so it was a natural fit for Dr. Barnard to speak about the benefits of a vegan diet and PCRM’s global outreach efforts to Kickstart the World!

Research Without Cruelty Events

On Aug. 25, 150 guests gathered in the Amagansett, N.Y., home of John Bradham for a fundraiser to support PCRM, including the newly launched Research Without Cruelty campaign. Alec Baldwin provided a glowing endorsement, emphasizing the effectiveness of PCRM’s science-based approach. PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D., and PCRM director of government affairs Elizabeth Kucinich updated everyone on recent victories and PCRM’s plans to change the future of research. Guests were treated to the musical talent of Gooding, Paul Gene, and Chris Ayer. Delicious vegan food and drinks were provided by Vérité Catering, Natural Foods Cooking School, Frey Vineyards, and Treeline cashew cheese. Thank you to all our guests for making this end-of-summer event such a success!

Kimberly EdwardsKimberly Edwards was motivated to get involved in PCRM’s work when she attended an event last year in Malibu. On July 7, she hosted a wonderful rooftop evening soiree in Marina del Rey, Calif., to bring PCRM members together and introduce more people to Dr. Barnard and PCRM’s mission. “Dr. Barnard and PCRM have brought so much awareness and hope into my life with the work that they do, and it was a tremendous honor to host a beautiful and inspiring evening with wonderful friends to celebrate the many extraordinary achievements of PCRM,” says Ms. Edwards.


Ann and Larry Wheat, owners of Mil- lennium, threw open the doors of their San Francisco restaurant on July 8 for a packed reception followed by a sold- out four-course vegan dinner. Dr. Barnard and PCRM director of regulatory testing issues Kristie Sullivan, M.P.H., were on hand to share the latest news on how PCRM’s scientists are influencing interna- tional policy on research using nonanimal methods.
