Back again for its eighth serving, ArtsQuest’s annual Souper Bowl fundraiser will be more delicious than ever when it returns Jan. 28.
The Souper Bowl starts at 11 a.m. with the VIP Hour, with the public event taking place from noon-3 p.m. During the afternoon, attendees can taste all of the delicious soups presented by restaurants and caterers from throughout the region. After sampling, guests can then vote for their favorites, with the winning restaurant named the Souper Bowl Champion! In addition, a panel of judges will sample all the soups and award the best entries in six different categories including Vegetarian, Seafood-Based, Cream-Based, Meat-Based, Ethnic and Most Original. The afternoon also features live entertainment from the Dan DeChellis Trio and a raffle that includes prizes donated by the participating restaurants.
