The Winnipeg Humane Society is going green to serve grass-fed, humanely raised beef at its upcoming Bow Wow Ball gala.
It’s the first time in the gala’s 23-year history The WHS “will set a new standard for food sourcing,” according to the organization.
“People are becoming more aware of how animals used for food are treated and the health benefits associated with humanely farmed meat,” said WHS CEO Javier Schwersensky.
“Offering humanely raised beef from a local Manitoba farm is a momentous occasion for the WHS and promotes animal welfare within our province.”
Chef Eraj of The Fairmont Winnipeg, the venue of the Bow Wow Ball, will prepare the Edie Creek Angus Beef Bourguignon. Vegetarians will have the option of a truffle mushroom and root vegetable cannelloni.
The gala, themed Phantom of the Pawpera, is October 15.
