“Soup for Good TO GO” Event Benefits Guilford Art Center and Community Dining Room
Guilford, CT – Help support two important shoreline non-profit organizations at the annual Soup for Good TO GO event on Sunday, December 6. This popular fundraiser, which benefits Guilford Art Center and the Community Dining Room, will look a little different this year due to pandemic restrictions on gathering, but you will enjoy a delicious meal to go and a chance to win some fun prizes as well!
Tickets are $30 and include a choice of 3 homemade soups, bread, a split of wine, and a sweet, all packaged in a handmade, reusable fabric bag. Participants will also receive a discount coupon for The Shop at GAC and an entry into a drawing to win handmade bowls by GAC potters and autographed copies of Jacques Pepin’s newest cookbook Quick & Simple. Participants will pick up their soup and bread “to go” at GAC on Sunday, December 6 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. Drawing winners will be announced earlier and prizes can be picked up then as well.
“This year has been very financially difficult for shoreline non-profits, including GAC and CDR” says Maureen Belden, GAC Executive Director. “All of our fundraising events were cancelled, so we hope the community will rally around us and support Soup for Good.”
The Holiday Shop at Guilford Art Center will be open for special shopping hours on Sunday, December 6 from 2:00 – 4:00 pm. The public is welcome.
Tickets for Soup for Good TO GO are $30 per person and must be purchased by Friday, December 4. Tickets can be purchased on the GAC website (www.guilfordartcenter.org.) A portion of proceeds will benefit the Community Dining room, as well as Guilford Art Center.
Event support generously provided by Panera Bread, Cate’s Sew Modern and Shoreline Wine Merchants.
