Hoedown 2019!

Our 2nd annual Benefit Fundraiser will take place on Sunday, September 1, 2019 at Rancho Compasión in beautiful Nicasio, California. The theme of this year's event is once again "Hoedown", so this will provide you with your annual opportunity to break out your favorite Western outfit. The event will include an amazing meal of vegan food catered by Om Sabor, silent and live auctions, square dancing, and a visit with the more than 70 animals that call Rancho Compasión home. (Unfortunately, our chickens and turkeys will be off-limits for visiting due to the current Newcastle disease situation.)

Based on recent additions to our programming, the recent hiring of a new full-time staff member, as well as the on-going expenses associated with caring for our animals, we hope to raise $50,000 from the Hoedown this year.

But we can’t meet our goal without the generosity of supporters like you.

Please consider sponsoring our Hoedown fundraiser for an amount from $500-$5000. You can find more details about Sponsor benefits in the 'Become a Sponsor' section.

We hope that we can count on your help to make this year’s event our best yet!
