Soup For Youth Annual Lindsay Soupfest on Feb. 21.
Lindsay Ontario Helping YFC to Help Youth
Local restaurants will feature their best homemade soups in a competition in an effort to raise awareness and funds for Kawartha Youth Unlimited programming. The Odyssey Project, and The Líll Big Band will entertain the crowds once again and former CTV weatherman, Dave Devall, will be emcee for the day.
Admission is $10 and each person receives a SoupFest booklet with restaurant names on it that is exchanged for one or two homemade soups. There are two ballot slips in the booklet that people will use to vote for the Best Tasting Soup and The Most Unique Soup. Last year, Adelaide Place and Pane Vino tied for Best Tasting and Pane Vino retained its title for Most Unique.
Roughly $4,000 has been raised over the last two years.
Every dollar raised is virtually returned into the community, courtesy of Youth Incorporated members.
Youth Unlimited is an international Christian organization giving hope to youth around the world. LINK
In Lindsay, the organization is extremely committed to the well being of youth. They currently run a breakfast program with the Alternative Education and Training Centre and also serve with the Salvation Army for their lunch program as well as other youth oriented events throughout the year. Their desire is to duplicate these efforts and serve in many other outlets throughout the community. They work to meet the physical, emotional and spiritual needs in youth providing care for the whole person and sharing with them their God given value.
