Pierogi Pierogi Fundraiser

A Polish dumpling feast with all profits going to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre.

We all love a good Polish dumpling, but who knew the humble pierogi actually had a patron saint? His name is Saint Hyacinth and he even has a day of feasting dedicated to him, which falls on August 17. And to celebrate, your mates at Pierogi Pierogi are hosting a good ol' dumpling fundraiser.

As it turns out, Saint Hyacinth was famed for feeding homemade pierogi to Krakow's poor, needy and destitute, and these locals are marking the occasion by doing something similar.

At the Pierogi Pierogi stall at The Fitzroy Market on Saturday, August 18 — they're holding it a day later so it falls on the weekend — the team will donate all dumpling profits to the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre (ASRC), in a nod to the Poles who were welcomed into Australia when they fled the communist regime in the 40s and 80s.

What's more, if you donate on the day and fill out a raffle ticket, you'll go into the draw to win a huge Pierogi Pierogi feast for you and ten mates at your house.
