Souper Bowl 2014-by Joe LedvaAs a result of this weekend’s forecasted inclement weather, ArtsQuest’s Souper Bowl culinary event and fund-raiser has been cancelled. The annual event, which features area chefs and restaurants serving up a variety of delicious soups, was set for Sat., Jan. 23, 11 a.m., at the ArtsQuest Center at SteelStacks.

Started seven years ago, the Souper Bowl is the largest single fundraiser supporting the nonprofit ArtsQuest’s arts education programming for the community, including its free events and educational programming for at-risk youth. Thanks to the support of area restaurants and event ticket purchasers, the organization has been able to raise more than $85,000 since 2010 to support the free concerts at SteelStacks, education programs at the Banana Factory and more.

ArtsQuest will contact all ticket purchasers directly in regard to refund options. The organization is also looking at the possibility of rescheduling the Souper Bowl for later in 2016. If rescheduling the event is an option, the nonprofit will announce the new date and details when confirmed.
