Get involved in CAUnival this August!
Celebrating this year's festival of friendship with CAU
Aug 18 2016
The South American festival of Dia del Amigo celebrates friendship, kindness and sharing. This August, one of our fantastic restaurant partners CAU, inspired by the vibrancy, colour and cultural diversity of Buenos Aires, have once again been holding their very own CAUnival to mark the festival.
CAU and Action Against Hunger originally came together for CAUnival last year, to raise awareness and funds for our work all over the world. To help celebrate this year's CAUnival, another friend has been added into the fold - the brilliant DJ BBQ.
A special limited edition burger, designed in collaboration between CAU head chef James Garland and DJ BBQ (aka Christian Stevenson), have been a highlight of the festivities thus far. Perfect for the barbecue (of course!), the burger also uses South American flavours as a key inspiration. For every one of the specially supercharged burgers that’s ordered, CAU will donate £1 to our work, which could help us provide a day’s worth of therapeutic food to nurse a malnourished child back to health.
To find out more about the burger, DJ BBQ has taken you through everything you need to know in the video below

On-site events, promotions, charity raffles and silent auctions have also been taking place at CAU sites nationwide.
Also, an interactive social media competition, using the hashtag #CAUnival, has given people a chance to win weekly prizes including premium Spotify memberships, cases of CAU own brand wine, CAU burgers, steak sandwiches and pairs of Converse trainers. The main prize to look out for is a special one - a trip for two to Buenos Aires!
There's still loads of time to join in the CAUnival fun, so check out CAU's website to find your nearest branch. The CAUnival special menu runs until the end of the month and is a great way to support our work, including our work in South America, a key inspiration for the campaign.

Our thanks go to CAU and DJ BBQ for joining with us for the CAUnival celebrations, and we hope you enjoy your visit!
