The KAV holds numerous events in person and online throughout the calendar year, with the primary goals of fundraising and awareness-raising, advancing education, and looking after the welfare our community.
Events such as the annual Kastellorizian of the Year Award and our St Constantine and Helens Day celebration, raise funds and awareness for community groups in Australia and Kastellorizo, while bringing the Kastellorizian community together in Victoria. Our Seniors group holds events on the first Wednesday of every month, with the goal of facilitating social interaction for seniors in the community (travel and dining expenses are subsidised by the KAV, while our welfare officer regularly checks in on those attending and those not attending).
Our free, monthly ‘Kazzie Connect’ sessions on Zoom are part of our philanthropic goal to advance education within our community, while ahelping us stay connected in a time of social distancing. These events feature experts and honourable guest speakers within the Kastellorizian-Victorian community, speaking on diverse topics.
