3pm to 5pm Donation suggested. TAKE YOUR BLINDERS OFF Meet & Greet Fundraiser. Take Your Blinders Off, Inc. (TYBO) is a non-profit vegan/animal rights outreach organization created by Dr. Randall Cannon, a Winter Park, Fla., veterinarian, in April, 2012. Randy and other volunteers educate the public about animal-related issues with the help of his black Toyota Tundra, on which he had two large custom-made screens built and installed. They primarily display Mercy for Animals' "Farm to Fridge" video, but also feature a broad range of images, video and messages depending on the nature of a demonstration or event.
Maintaining TYBO and its custom truck is expensive: gasoline, repairs (vehicle and screens), insurance, materials, corporate expenses, etc. To cover these costs, Randy and his friends are hosting a fundraising event at which attendees can meet the vegan vet and see & ride the TYBO truck.
Please come to this fancy affair, at which there will be cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, desserts and entertainment. Admission is whatever donation to Take Your Blinders Off, Inc. you can make.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
