SoupsOn HLBCC 28Jan23 handover
There was a lot of careful passing during the well-attended Soup's On & Silent Auction.


Soup's On!

Twenty five of them, in fact, from 13 potager professionals, and all of them were deemed delicious.

SoupsOn logoNearly 2,000 bowls of soup were ladled out during Alzheimer Grey-Bruce's Soup's On & Silent Auction, Saturday, Jan. 28.

More than 330 people, plus 35 volunteers, sampled six soups of their own choice and looked over hundreds silent auction items during the fundraiser at Owen Sound's Harry Lumley Bayshore Community Centre.

Organizers hope to make this an annual event, and the positive community response received Saturday certainly helps with this goal.

A panel of expert judges, including Owen Sound Mayor Ian Boddy and Bruce-Grey-Owen Sound MPP Rick Byers, spooned their way to choosing the Best Creamy, Best Hearty and Best Vegetarian soups, while Society and soup supporters weighed in on the People's Choice Award.
