2nd Annual SOUP-off Results

Many thanks to all who came out last night for our 2nd Annual SOUP-off! We had 38 soup-makers, approximately 350 attendees, and raised over $3,000. We could not have done it without you, so thank you all for your support and statuses and soups.

These funds will first be directed to the children for food, medical care, school supplies, clothes, and other basic necessities; we will put all remaining funds in our account for the building of the orphanage.

Thank you again for your enthusiastic participation in the SOUP-off this year. There was some heavy competition! The following awards were presented last night:

  • The Golden Bowl Award- Lindsay Larkin's Baked Potato Soup
  • The Silver Spoon Award- B.E.S.T. Team's Gumbo
  • Trustees' Choice Award- The Biology Club's Curried Pumpkin Soup with special recognition to The Briggs' Carrot Ginger Soup and the BAA's Chili
We have already begun planning our next big event- mark your calendars for March...

5 Days and Counting....

5 days until our 2nd annual SOUP-off. 3 days left to register.

We are very excited with this event coming up; last year we were blown away by the 40 soup entries and the 400+ participants that attended. We know that this year's competition will exceed the last for the Golden Bowl, Silver Spoon, and newly added Trustees' Choice Awards.

So come out to Krannert's Spruill ballroom on Thursday from 5-7 pm if you are a Berry student, faculty, or trustee, for your voice in this year's SOUP-off. Come taste our 40 soups, meet the faces behind the SOUP, and speak with a panel of people passionate about African and Ugandan culture. Entry fee is $3.
