I went to the Soup Cook-off to celebrate their 10 years and wow what a crowd. The event was filled with a ton of people and a great variety of soups. Some I have never tried before. There was a fun silent auction including a cake in the shape of a soup bowl and some vendors in the back. Great job to the organizers for a successful event and helping our communities homeless and poor..

The 10th Annual Soup Cook Off was awesome!!! The attendance was in incredible!! Maddie and Sami passed out over 900 samples each!! Thank you so much for adding the Junior Division! What a great experience for the kiddos! It was so fun and such a great experience for them to pick their soup, work on and tweak their recipe/taste/flavors and then to present the soup/samples and get reactions from those taste testing!
