SoupGrant Lansing’s Two Year Anniversary!

On August 20th, #LanSoup celebrated its two year anniversary as an organization. In honor of the occasion, we invited back four previous winners: Compost Katie, Cuts and Convos, Lansing Soccer Club, and Teens LOL TV to compete for a second micro-grant. Each organization had a total of eight minutes to present and answer questions before voting took place…

But before we announce the winner, there were a lot of other cool things at this SoupGrant dinner that we want to share. First, all of our guests were treated to delicious soup and birthday desserts and each attendee even had a chance to win two Lansing Lugnuts tickets at the door! In addition to hearing about all of the awesome work the past four winners have been doing since they first won a #SoupGrant, everyone was able to learn about the exciting work Lansing Love Your Block is doing to improve Lansing’s neighborhoods. And as if that wasn’t sweet enough, Danielle Welke from Mid-Mitten Homemade (another past winner!) brought FREE Michigan ice-pops for all guests. The chocolate fudgesicle with coconut milk was amazing!

All in all, It was such an awesome event – catching up with old friends and welcoming new! Thank you to all of our new supporters. SoupGrant Lansing cannot make a difference without all of your support and generous donations for the presentations. What made the night even most special was the fact that we crowd-funded the largest SoupGrant #LanSoup has ever had! Congratulations to Jonathan and his team from Cuts and Convos for taking home $260! Keep up the great work. We appreciate all that you do and cannot wait to see the positive change you continue to bring to the Greater Lansing area.
