Fans queued outside The Plum Café Friday afternoon to meet rock and roll mega-star Joan Jett. Jett hosted a benefit for Farm Sanctuary, a leading farm animal protection and rescue organization in America. While there, guests and supporters were able to enjoy a vegetarian buffet, as well as a meet and greet with the legendary musician.
News 10 had a chance to speak with Jett about her involvement with Farm Sanctuary.
“I think what they do is good work— it’s a unique niche.” Jett discovered the Sanctuary while they were on a rescue mission. “There was terrible flooding on the Mississippi. I read about cattle being stranded on high ground and Farm Sanctuary sent trucks to pick all those animals up.”
Jett has had a long career in the music industry and continues to perform for die-hard fans from multiple generations. She calls the range of ages in her fans “beautiful”.
