Art Soup to benefit Loaves and Fish Community Ministries Inc. is an annual fundraiser that kicks off Homeless Awareness Week in November. It is an evening of entertainment, great food, and local art that brings attention to the homeless issues in our area and raises funds for the organizations that provide help for the homeless. The art in "Art Soup" is represented by exquisite, handcrafted bowls donated by local artists. The empty bowl signifies the fight against hunger. This year, Art Soup will feature local artists showcasing their talent throughout the event, the band SWING, soups and deserts from local restaurants, and a cash bar. The event will be held at Crown Hall November 22, 2019, from 6-9pm. Tickets are $35 per person and can be purchased at www.artsoupmobile.org. On the day of the event tickets can purchased at the door by check, cash or credit card.
WHO BENEFITS: ART SOUP proceeds will focus on awarding grants to the following organizations: Door to Serenity, Family Promise, McKemie Place, Ransom Ministries, Penelope House, The Salvation Army, USA Student-Run Free Clinic and Wings of Life Recovery as well as other organizations that can replicate services for the homeless that were lost with the closing of the 15 Place day center, such as showers, mailbox services, laundry and bag drops.
