Peruvian Night fundraiser for Beauty of Sprouts

Update! RSVP's are now closed. If you did not prepay or talk to Rano then your RSVP will be cancelled.

Appetizers will be served at 5pm. If you come late, sorry you will miss these!

Presentation from 5:30 to 6:15

Dinner about 6:15


Please join us on Sunday, August 10th at 5pm for for a special fundraising dinner and presentation by Don and Alessandra about their recent trip to the mountains of Peru where we saw condors, amazing mountains, glaciers and of course the wonderful people of Peru. Rano will feed us an amazing array of vegan Peruvian treats with both cooked and raw dishes. All of this and you are supporting a great, 100% vegan restaurant here in Sarasota. See the great menu below!


To reserve your spot, you need to PREPAY $30 per person at the Beauty of Sprouts by calling[masked] or visit them at 1474 Fruitville Rd, Sarasota, FL from Tues to Saturday from 10am until 8pm!  This way Rano will know how much food to make. I know this is a hassle, but with a 25% no-show rate, we can't put the burden on restaurants of knowing how much food to make for a special event like this.

Menu (subject to changes)

Squash soup

White bean Escabeche

Mushroom ceviche

Fruit ceviche 

Vegan yam Causa

Quinoa tabbouleh 

Raw tallarines verdes

Tamalitos verdes

A special Lucuma desert

And of course Pisco Sours to drink (there will be non-alcoholic options too)


Please note that The Beauty of Sprouts will be closed for renovations from August 24th until September 8th or 9th.
