Can you imagine waking up every day worrying about where your next bite of food for you and your family will come from? There are hundreds of families in DuPage county each day that face this fear. Thankfully, there are resources out there to help, such as shelters and food pantries. These types of services rely on the kindness of the community to give to those in need.
On Sunday, October 19th, the Rotary Club of Naperville will be hosting “Soup’s On!”, a fun, family focused fundraiser featuring great entertainment and plenty of delicious food.Benefiting Hesed House, DuPage PADS, Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry and the Rotary Club of Naperville Charities, the concept of “Soup’s On” ties in with the theme of a “soup kitchen” and feeding people in need – a goal of these three not-for-profit organizations.
Over 30 local restaurants will be serving soups, stews, chili, chowders, and BBQ as well as artisan cheeses, specialty bread and yummy deserts. There will also be a specific children’s menu available. Guest will be treated to live entertainment by students from Districts 203 and 204. In addition, “Soup’s On!” will also have a children’s activity area sponsored by the DuPage Children’s Museum, and a silent auction.
The event is from 11:30am – 3:30pm at Naperville Central High School located at 440 Aurora Avenue in Naperville. Tickets are $45 for adults, $35 for seniors 65+ and military personnel, $10 for children 6-12, and children under 5 are free. You can purchase tickets by going to Soups On Rotary and selecting “Purchase Tickets” from the left side of the home page.
If you are unable to attend, you can still donate directly to any of the charities listed below to give back to those in need of food and shelter in DuPage County, IL.
I hope you are able to make it and have a great time while giving back to those in need!
