Animal Defenders International will be honoring Bob Barker and Jorja Fox during a night jam packed with celebrities in Los Angeles.
The event will be called Lion Ark Night to commemorate the 29 circus lions rescued from Bolivia and delivered to the United States. The gala will also feature a preview of the upcoming documentary Lion Ark - which we're super excited to eventually watch!
Barker will receive the Lord Houghton Award for Services to Animal Welfare - an honor only bestowed every four years - which is remarkable since we elect a president every four years, too!
Here's what the ADI prez said:
"Bob Barker’s philanthropic contributions to animal protection have been vital to the success of Animal Defenders International and others like us. But, importantly, this award recognizes Mr. Barker as a leading and articulate voice for suffering animals in the world.”
And don't worry about the food at the event cause it will totally be one hundred percent vegan!!!
