Thanks to everyone who made the 6th annual Soups of the World a GREAT success! Our Soups Of The World event broke previous years’ records with attendance and donations.
We had about 150 guests at the event who helped raise almost $4,500 which was $900 more than last year. The excited crowed packed Grace’s Kitchen which is a part of St. Barnabas Episcopal Church. Volunteers served 5 different soups that were made by community members. About 15 volunteers helped serve coleslaw, bread, crackers, drinks and condiments. After dinner, the always lively dessert auction began with Larry Don Suckla serving as the auctioneer. Cakes, brownies, cheesecake, cookies and homemade ice cream were all big hits at the auction. This year the auction even included a surprise item. The crowd watched with excitement as that item went for $360. Overall, a good time was had by all and Soups of the World was a stunning success for the Bridge Emergency Shelter.
We are so grateful to all who came out to support the Bridge!
