About the Event

During this annual fundraising event, guests enjoy samples of gourmet soup prepared by Niagara’s finest chefs and served in one-of-a-kind bowls created by local potters. Included as the perfect complement are Niagara wines, beer, cider, fresh breads and decadent desserts.

Guests take home the empty bowl as a continuous reminder of those who struggle to meet basic living needs in our very own community.
