We are delighted to inviting you to an afternoon of immersive Venezuelan culture in Melbourne, we have called the event "Arepazo por Venezuela", as we are raising funds to help non-profit organizations who are dealing with families in humanitarian aid crisis in Venezuela. (To discover more about this group and initiatives come and join us in a multi-cultural afternoon)
About the Arepazo
If you were wondering what "arepazo" means, a dictionary look up might not help, not even Google, but we proudly will tell you all about it. The "Arepa", it is just one of the most popular dishes in Venezuela, most families have it daily and it is a sort of bread, made of corn flour, that can be filled with practically any option of your preference, such as, cheese, ham, beef, black beans, chicken, sausages, pork, amongst many of the options.
However, "arepazo" is a Venezuelan colloquialism, in saying "a big event of just arepas".
By now, you would know what an Arepa is, but we would like you to join us to tasting our home made style Arepas and further support our fundraising event, which will focus in below targets. Please note, all supplies are being donated by Volunteers of the Humanitarian Aid Group, the event is being sponsored by the VAA and St. Brigid's Catholic parish (Fitzroy, Melbourne VIC).
