Moby to Perform on Cruise to Benefit Animals

Musician to give special acoustic performance on a cruise to benefit animal-rights organization.

Animal activist and famed musician Moby will give a live acoustic performance aboard a yacht for an event called “Cruise for a Cause: Making Waves for Animals,” hosted by animal-rights organization Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF). “Moby is one of those people who relentlessly works to better the lives of animals every day, and we are happy that he’ll be joining us in this special occasion,” ALDF Executive Director Stephen Wells says. The evening cruise will feature vegan food, music, auction items, and a hosted bar. The event will celebrate ALDF’s animal-related victories from 2016, and celebrities such as actress Charlotte Ross, television legend Ed Asner, and HBO’s True Blood star Kristin Bauer are scheduled to attend. Moby recently hosted vegan festival Circle V in Los Angeles where he donated all profits to animal-rights organization Mercy for Animals. His LA-based restaurant Little Pine also donates 100-percent of profits to animal advocacy organizations, including ALDF. The cruise departs from Marina Del Rey in California on November 5.
