Everyone’s favorite North American chicken wing joint is teaming up with NGOs this weekend in support of a nation and people in need of some back up. Anyone following the news is all too aware that Venezuela is currently in a situation of crisis, experiencing extreme civil unrest, the possible dissolution of democratic institutions, and widespread shortages of food and other essential supplies like medicine.
This Saturday, Palermo’s own Chicken Bros, will join a list of international organizations working to raise funds for the people of Venezuela. The NGOs involved in Chicken Bros’ event include Venezuela es Una, Una Voz, and the international charity Acción Solidaria which provides aid to people with HIV and their families.
The event kicks off from 12 noon to 8pm, where they’ll be money for medical supplies for people who need them in Venezuela. Wristbands will be available on the door for AR $100, which give the wearer access to get in on special offers. These include a discount on their ‘Venezuela libre’ cocktail and on Isenbeck, as well as entry into a raffle.
The wristband isn’t the only way the guys behind Chicken Bros are encouraging people to donate. There are other ways you can contribute, including participation in the online silent auction, prizes for which include a 7-course dinner for two and a trip to Iguazú. NGOs will have stands at the event, at which donations can be made directly. On top of that, Chicken Bros will be donating a percentage of the profits of all sales at the event to Acción Solidaria.
A solid cause, and live Venezuelan and Caribbean music all afternoon. We can drink to that!
