The Vancouver Vegetarian Society (VVS) held their Inaugural Dinner launch event at the picturesque Silk Lounge in Gastown Vancouver on Friday, May 10th. By all accounts, it was a huge success!
Supporters of VVS as well as a diverse group of academics, artists and entrepreneurs joined founders Shawn and Aarti Goyal to celebrate the launch of this non-profit society. Shawn Goyal explained “we are a multi-cultural social group that aims to bring together like-minded individuals and families who are dedicated to promoting a healthy, compassionate and environmentally friendly lifestyle.”
VVS outlined their vision of a lifestyle that is vibrant, modern and progressive yet is compassionate and sustainable. VVS aims to inspire the broader community through social events and raise awareness about the benefits of a plant-based diet.
Drinks flowed and delectable plant-based meals were shared as guests socialized and networked late into the night.
Congratulations to Shawn & Aarti Goyal for launching this new initiative!
