August 15th is not a usual SoupGrant!

We’re shaking things up this month by replacing our usual warm soups with a fresh, crisp salad bar and we’re asking guests to bring toppings to share. That’s not the only difference, either!

On Thursday, we’ll be at The Fledge — a radically inclusive ideation space on a mission to create opportunities to pursue happiness — and we’re going to try to get two presenters from Ele’s Place to present in mock-competition with each other for the SoupGrant.

Think that’s silly? Well if you donate $10 or more to our event, you can join the comedy show that follows at 8:00!

Our presenter

Ele’s Place supports grieving children so they may continue their lives with hope and confidence. Staff and volunteers provide long-term, age-appropriate, weekly peer support groups at no charge, for families coping with the death of a family member or friend.

They also educate the community about children’s grief issues, acts as a resource and referral agency, and provides support and training for school, medical, and other professionals in contact with the bereaved.

We’re starting the night with a salad bar with the basics and asking guests to bring additional toppings/dressings. Oh, and don’t forget a bowl and spoon fork!

After salad, we’ll hear from our presenters. We’re hoping to get two presenters from Ele’s Place to talk about projects in a mock-competition. We’ll put the projects to a vote and Ele’s Place will be awarded everything we raise.

Please bring a donation to this experimental SoupGrant! All proceeds go to Ele’s Place and if you donate $10 or more you can also attend the comedy show that follows our event.

The You’ve Got To Be Kidding Me Comedy Event starts at 8:00 at The Fledge. You can learn more about this local comedy show on their Facebook event.
