Alec Baldwin is once again using his celebrity to help animals in need - this time as co-host for a Hamptons bash benefiting the non-profit Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine (PCRM).
The long-time activist will be joined by PCRM president Neal Barnard, M.D. in championing compassion in medicine and the removal of animals from medical research. Tickets range from $250-$1000, with the festivities taking place at the home of John Bradham. Naturally, catering for the evening will consist of gourmet vegan hors d’oeuvres.
“I haven’t eaten beef since 1991,” Baldwin said in a 2010 interview with Edible Manhattan. “I have no appetite for pork or beef at all. I eat fish and eggs. I love fish, but I have been mindful of information I have gotten. I eat less than I used to. The bigger the fish, the less you want to eat.”
Baldwin has supported, hosted events, and campaigned for various initiatives sponsored by both PCRM and PETA over the years. This past July, to celebrate the actor's marriage to Hilaria Thomas, PETA purchased a bull named Raja from a sugarcane farmer in India, renaming him "Baldwin Thomas."
